$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including 4 teens for around $125 a week!
This week I was able to stock up on ground chuck and chuck roast for around $2.50 a pound which is a great price for our area. This will last us several weeks, so you will see lots of ground beef in the upcoming menus. Click here to see how I prepare all this ground beef.
I am still recovering from my knee being dislocated and my husband and daughter are doing the shopping and cooking, so we are keeping things super simple. We were out of several staple items because I purchased the bare necessities during December. Purchasing those plus the extra meat brought our total spending for the week to $158.85, well over-budget. My total for January is $455.83.
*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. )
