$125 Budget Weekly Menu –After two years of $100 Budget Menus, we’ve increased the grocery budget to $125 a week for six people including three teens.
(Please Note: You may not be able to replicate this exact menu for $125 because sales are probably different in your area and you will have different items on hand, but you can save money just by using a menu. 🙂)

It is so nice to see other people managing to have a varied diet on a budget. I hear people say all the time it can’t be done. I also get told you can’t lose weight on a budget, but I lost 98lbs that way and have written a lot about budget healthy eating.
I went to the farmers market this week and bought lots of squash, so I shall be making things with those this weekend.
Good for you Dannii! 🙂
