$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including 4 teens for $125 a week!
This week we are attending a couple of parties so I don’t have to cook dinner those nights- woohoo! I am keeping the remaining meals as simple as possible and primarily serving food we already have in the freezer, fridge and pantry (marked with an asterisk) so I was able to keep the grocery budget to $75.13 this 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. 🙂)
