$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including 4 teens for around $125 a week!
Well this week I am TOTALLY over budget. We were out of lots of pantry items and I had very little time to go to multiple stores. I was at least able to purchase chicken wings for $1.49 a pound and I found a lot of produce deals, but my total spending for this week was $178.04, or $53.04 over budget.
*Items marked with an asterisk were purchased in previous weeks in the $125 Budget and are in the pantry, fridge or freezer.

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. 🙂)
