$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including 4 teens for $125 a week!
I went WAY over budget this week due to disorganization. I didn’t have time to make a complete menu, but we were out of several essential items so I made a “quick run” to the store to pick up a “few things”.
That visit plus the fact that we were out of several pantry items resulted in a total for this week of $184.93 – yikes! That brings my April monthly total to $546.91, or $46.91 over budget for the month.
