$125 Budget Weekly Menu {+ easy recipes!}

by Kimberlee Stokes Affiliate Link Disclosure B

$125 Budget Weekly Menu –  Making a weekly meal plan keeps me sane and helps me to save money and stay on budget. I feed my family of six including four teens for around $125 a week by creating and following a detailed menu plan, shopping at a discount chain and buying sale items at other grocery stores.

[See my $125 Weekly Grocery Shopping for 6 People here.]

    This is always such a help for me! Do you make your own pizza for dinner?

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee Stokes

      I have made pizza in the past but right now I buy the ready made pizzas from Aldi because I am serving it on a night when I don’t have time to make dinner due to our schedule.

        Smart lady! Honestly, with the aldi prices, it really evens out cost wise. I am in a busy season of life and you inspire me to give myself grace!

          Yes, lots of grace. :)
