We have allowed for $500 a week between us after the rest of our money is used to pay bills, groceries, mortgage, savings, trust accounts, everything except for swimming lessons and my PT which has to be paid in cash and they both come out of our allowance.

We don't do allowances but I'd think it would cover treats/extras... so for me, that would be buying coffees, occasional takeaway/cafe lunch, books, music. I could easily do that on $40 a week, I reckon!
But then there would need to be an amount set aside out of the normal budget for bigger non-essentials such as clothes, concerts, restaurant meals (rare but when we do, we like to pig out lol)
