$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 shoulder, bone-in chicken breasts, canned white Albacore tuna, extra virgin olive oil, Classico pasta sauce (our favorite) and Hunt’s diced tomatoes. We spent $145.77 this week because I stocked up on some of these staples, so we are over my weekly goal of $125. Our March monthly total is $277.17.

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. )
