$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including 3 teens and a twelve year old for around $125 a week!
This week’s sale items included apples for 50 cents per pound, eggs for $1.25 per dozen, potatoes for 34 cents per pound and boneless, skinless chicken breasts for $1.79 per pound, so those are the items you will see in the menu. My total spending for the week was $138.99, but I only spent $74.71 last week, so my average for the month is $106.85 per week.
*Items marked with an asterisk were purchased in previous weeks in the $125 Budget and are in the pantry, fridge or freezer.

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. 🙂)
