Lots of threads here.
You only have $20 for the week....what do you buy?
Eating within your low carb budget.. Several threads included
Those are 2 of the big ones, you can search "budget" for more

soup with chicken bones and meat, celery, onion, a little carrot, and leftover veggies (I keep a tupperware in the freezer to save dabs of stuff for soup)
make chicken salad out of leftover chicken leg parts.

some fish is inexpensive. Bread it in crushed pork rinds and/or parmesan from the can, put it in a pyrex w/melted butter and bake at 375, turning once, for crispy legal 'fish sticks'

Eggs are the best thing you can buy. Ground beef on offer. Veggies you will need less than you think and will be cheap if you buy what is in season. Buy butter and cream. Buy any type of cheese that is cheap and real.

You can live without cheese or any dairy for two weeks. I would focus on the necessities like meat and vegetables.

Since anything high fat will sate you the longest, I'd go for the fattiest hamburger you can buy, sausages, brats, etc. The things you like go with those meats. Onions, celery, cucumbers and pickles are cheap to reasonable, bell peppers might have to go, too expensive. Eggs and cheese would give you some variety. Good luck.

2 adults and a child? or 3 adults? Do you have an Aldi? you can get cheap eggs and cheese, look for maybe a big pork shoulder roast and have that for several meals. I think stuffed mushrooms are out of the budget too.
Another thing that would help is to know what you already have on hand.

I would also buy a big roasting chicken and make a huge pot of chicken soup! You can eat on the chicken the first night leaving some meat for the soup....boil the carcass, strain and voila!!

hit the meat counter for all sales. buy nothing that is not on sale or reduced in price.

buy any and all IN SEASON cheaper veg that the store has lower prices that you like to eat.

check frozen veg on sale.

soup and stews are a great way to stretch meat meals.

AND check the house. the freezer. the pantry. for all foods you already paid for and haven't eaten shop your house first, then buy ONLY what you need to make it thru.

What I would do...is use whatever is left for dinner for lunches the next day. Try to make meals last as long as possible.

look for cheap sources of good fat. maybe some marked down butter? fat has a lot of calories and it adds so much to satiety, no matter what you are eating.
