$100 Budget Weekly Menu (for six people including three teens!): One reason that I am able to stay home rather than work full time is that I try every week to stick to a grocery budget of $100, and the primary way I do that is by menu planning.
I have customizable menu planners available here which you can type your meals into and print each week, but this week I tried something a little different and put the menu planner in a page protector.
I don’t know if I will keep doing this because my handwriting isn’t as neat with the dry erase markers, but I thought I would try it for this week.
Here’s a look at our menu for this week. Check back later today to see my grocery shopping for this week (and link up your savings!)
