Our food budget (all eating out, restaurants, bars, and groceries) is $500/month for two people. So we tend to spend between $200-$300 of that on going out. I guess we’d rather drink beer at home? BUUUUUUUT we do have a big line item for travel, $500/month, and that’s not every month, just amortized over a year. I guess it just depends what your priorities are. If you have $1000 in discretionary spending…you’ll spend or save it somewhere.
