$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 chicken thighs and ground beef so you will see those in the menu. We spent $122.18 this week which brings our February monthly total spending to $520.71 – $20 over budget because of some special Valentine’s items I purchased.

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. )
