$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including 4 teens for around $125 a week!
This week’s sale items included ground chuck, sirloin steak, feta cheese, cantaloupe and Fuji apples so you will see those items in our menu. I spent $134.85 this week which brings our March monthly total to $412.02, so it looks like I will be over for the month.

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. 🙂)
