My shopping for 4/4 - 4/10

(Here is my WinCo shopping - I am stocked up on most fresh items so this was a frozen food run; , I also purchased 5lbs of chicken breast from Albertson's not shown)

I have a family budget of $500 a month, I try to split it up $125 per week.  This budget includes food, cleaning supplies, and bathroom supplies for my family of 4. I do include pet items I pick up at the store.
 
This week was great.  I was too busy to shop so I was $49.01 under budget! Here's a summary

Monthly Budget Summary
$500 Budget
$201.15 Spent
$298.85 Remaining for the month

Weekly Budget Summary
$125 Budget
$75.99 Spent ($49.01 under budget)
$30.90 In Savings

Does your weekly food budget include any eating out? or do you budget that separately?

thanks!

We really don't eat out. Sometimes I let the kids pick something off the $1 menu after school. That money is not included in my grocery budget. It's part of our weekly allowance that I use; my weekly allowance is $20 a week. We eat out about every three months or so using a Restaurant.com coupon and we use our overtime money when we put in extra hours at work. I just hate spending money on food.
