What is the best way to plan out meals for the week on a budget?

My husband and I just got married and are on a budget. How do I plan out good meals for the week that will also help me stay in a budget between $50-$100 for the week. Also what are some good ideas for lunches to take to work? I would take more sandwiches, but I do not like them after they have been pre made... show more My husband and I just got married and are on a budget.

Also what are some good ideas for lunches to take to work? I would take more sandwiches, but I do not like them after they have been pre made and sit in the fridge. Any other suggestions would be great.

Thanks!
Update: Oops I also forgot...if you have any good cheap meal suggestions that would be great too?
