$125 Budget Weekly Menu – Making a weekly meal plan keeps me sane, helps me to save money and stay on budget. I feed my family of six including four teens for around $125 a week by shopping at a discount chain and buying sale items at other grocery stores.
This week I spent $134.10 which was slightly over budget because I purchased steak that was not on sale, but my total was low last week so my June monthly total is $209.23 or an average of $104.60 per week.
*Items marked with an asterisk were purchased in previous weeks in the $125 Budget and are in the pantry, fridge or freezer.
