$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including 3 teens and a twelve year old for $125 a week. This week we are eating some cheaper foods like potatoes and pasta, and using some of the ground beef I purchased on sale last week. My total spending for the week is $74.71.

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. 🙂)
