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. 🙂)

Thank you for your posts and ideas!
I’ve been meal planning for our family of 5 (kiddos 2, 11 & 13) for about a year. It’s nice to have some fresh ideas that help keep the budget in check.
You are very welcome Courtney!
