$125 Budget Weekly Menu – Making a weekly meal plan keeps me sane and helps me to save money and stay on budget. I feed my family of six including four teens for around $125 a week by creating and following a detailed menu plan, shopping at a discount chain and buying sale items at other grocery stores.
This week I spent $108.27 which brings my June monthly total to $317.46, or an average of $105.82 per 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. 🙂)
