$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 serving cheaper meals (ham and bean soup, hot dogs, pasta) and shopping at a discount grocery store. My shopping total for this week was $99.08 and my total for the month of December is $329.90, or $109.96 average 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. 🙂)
