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. :)

      Hi Christa! No, this is just for food. I spend between $40 and $60 a month on non-food items like toiletries and household necessities like detergent, etc.
