$50 Weekly Menus Each week we'll share our weekly menus as well as recipes for our family of 4, which includes two seemingly ravenous teenagers (& several of their buddies) and two adults. I mention that we include the kids' friends in our menu because it's become a habit for them to have friends over several times per week. For the past 15 years, we've spent, on average, less than $250 per month for groceries (& household items- cleaners, detergents). Our menus include breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. They also include various beverages. I do not include pet foods, although over the years we've often made our own for our pets.

Now that I have a household of my own, I know exactly why my mom would pull out that crockpot during our busy weeks. Having four kids with many different schedules, it definitely was a chance for her to make us a healthy and delicious meal on those really hectic nights. Since I don’t have any children yet, I am fortunate enough to come home to an empty house relatively early, and prep and cook a delicious meal each night.
