Looks like you made a haul! I'm glad you have a realistic budget. Sometimes I beat myself up for not being able to feed my family of four on $50 a week like a lot of other bloggers I read. It's just not possible. I am so happy to be spending at least half of what I used to!

$500 a month fits us well. We like to have our treats, sometimes they are the generic brand. We don't eat out but about once a month so we can buy a few things we want vs what we need at the store.
