I always love reading your menu - I'd love to know what your average cost is each week for your menu. I'm operating on a small budget, so I'm always interested to see what others are doing!

Have a great week!

I spend about $90-$100 a week on groceries for 2 adults, and 3 under 9 boys. I do stockpile alot so if I see a great deal. I don't buy chicken breast or ground turkey for more than $1.99 a lb. I also check out the marked down meat-some good deals on steak. Sometimes hubby says the meat is a little tough but we marniade it for the most part.

I plan for leftovers either for a lunch or another night for a whole meal. We usually have salad on the side as well or a veggie that isn't always mentioned in the plan. That is usually spur of the moment.
