$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including 3 teens and a twelve year old for $125 a week! We have lots of food in the freezer, so I was able to keep my spending to $75.01 this week.
My total spending for October is $422.16, or $106 per week average! I am pretty happy with that!
*Items marked with an asterisk were purchased in previous weeks in the $125 Budget and are in the pantry, fridge or freezer.

Please Note: I post my weekly menu to encourage menu planning and to give meal ideas, not as a nutritional standard. You should feed your family based on your priorities and values. You may not be able to replicate this exact menu for $125 because sales vary by region and you will have different items on hand, but you can save money just by using a menu. )
