$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 beef chuck roast, potatoes, ground beef, Classico Pasta Sauce for $1.17 per 24 oz. jar (after sale and coupon), plus we had leftover eggs from the sale last week.
My total spending for the week was $133.45, which is $8.45 over budget, but my monthly total is only $347.15, or $115.71 average 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. 🙂)
