WEEKLY MEAL PLAN FOR A FAMILY OF 5 FOR LESS THAN $100!
I Feed My Family Of Five For $100 Per Week — Here’s a Week’s Worth Of Meals & Groceries For Us
This week, I tried to plan meals around ingredients I already had on hand in the hopes of keeping our grocery cost under $100. We are currently focusing on minimizing our overall grocery consumption by cutting back ($100-$140) every month in the hopes of putting that money towards developing our three-month emergency fund. We currently budget $700 each month for a family of five in California, which includes two adults and three children (8,6,2). The $700 does not just include food, but also any household/toiletry products.
