$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.
