$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 I spent $139.08 on our weekly groceries plus $28.95 to stock up on sale items like butter for $1.50/pound (which I put in the freezer for later). This brought my weekly total to $168.03 and my total spending for November to $528.96, which is over my $500 budget for the month, but I will be using some of this food in December.

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. 🙂)
