$125 Budget Weekly Menu {+ easy recipes!} 1/24

$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including 4 teens for $125 a week! 

This week’s sale items included pork chops, country style ribs, canned diced tomatoes and California navel oranges. My husband and 16 year old daughter did a fabulous job of shopping and kept our total for the week to $122.62, which brings our total for this month to $578.45. We are $78.45 over for the month because I spent so little in December and we were out of many staple items.

*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. :)
