$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 I saved money by shopping at Aldi’s, a discount store, and by basing our menu on items in our pantry, fridge and freezer (marked with an asterisk). I spent $69.77 for the week including our Thanksgiving food (my husband’s employer gave us a turkey).
My total spending for the month of November is $360.93, or $90 a week on average which has enabled us to save money for Christmas.

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. 🙂)
