    Only the wife and I here.

    Weekly groceries 60-75 per person, per week.
    Dinning out, about 150 per person, per month. This includes coffee shops, fast food and dining out.
    Alcohol: Not budgeted. We don't drink that often, and when we do... its a sixpack and cheap wine.

    Groceries - $300
    Eating out (mostly fast food lunches and the occasional Tim's coffee) $100
    Alcohol $0

    family of four - wife and I, 14 and 17yo sons. 2016 data.

    Groceries $6580 - $31/person/week
    Dining out $3553 - $17/person/week- this includes timmy's and starbucks etc.
    Bar/NightClub drinks - $505 - $6/person/week for wife and I
    LCBO - wine for her, hard liquor mostly for me and beer for when guests over- $829 - so $8/person/week for wife and I

    Included in this is shopping and stocking bar for social events he hold for between 4 and 15 4-5 times per year.
    Hosting dinners has the effect of keeping the dining out figure down.

    Wife and I have just started retirement. We have tracked carefully for many years. Most recent 12 months per person per week...groceries (includes cleaning supplies, paper products etc) $101, eating out $6, booze $25.

    I should note that we only buy the best "cardboardeau" wine we can find.

    a couple + cat , we both together don't spend over $400/month on food and groceries, we don't eat a lot to begin with, don't drink and only eat out a couple of times a month.

    I've gotten my grocery bill down to about $90/month for me and my cat. I also have a restaurant budget of $90.
    For groceries, I eat a lot of baked potatoes, rice, oats, popcorn and carrots. I buy whatever is on the 50% off produce rack, and occasionally get a 50% off sirloin steak. I pick up some beer over in Detroit now and then because it's cheaper, but I've had to cut way back on drinking. If I go over budget on my groceries, I reduce my restaurant budget by that amount.
    Food has been the toughest budget category to really cut back on, but if you shop smart you can make a big difference. I spent $25 at the grocery store the other day, and could barely carry the big bag of rice, potatoes, etc.

    I live alone, and I probably spend about $400/month on food, of which half is groceries and half is eating out. I don't have an alcohol budget but will usually pick up a beer or two when I'm at the grocery store. I lift weights and am currently on a bulking phase so I'm eating aroudn 4000 calories a day. My diet is very meat heavy (lots of steak, chicken, and ground beef). Don't really like vegetables. Eat a good amount of fruit though.

    Two answers. We don't know and it depends. We don't have a food/entertainment budget and we do not really track them. Just two of us. We do a fair amount of shopping at Costco so when we buy it always lasts a while. Also depends on the time of year and our travel schedule.
