$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’s sale items included Eat Smart raw veggies for $1.25 a bag, pork chops for $1.99/lb and Athenos Feta Cheese (8 oz. container) for $1.45. My total spending for the week was $95.44 (I am trying to stay under $100/week to save money for Christmas.). Total spending for November so far is $291.16, or an average of $97 per week.

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. 🙂)
