$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including 4 teens for around $125 a week!
These past two weeks have been a little crazy because I was gone for 5 days attending a conference. I didn’t have time to post my menu for last week, but I spent $112 on groceries. This week my total was $140.48, so my monthly total for April is $361.98.

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. 🙂)
