Is $900 too much spending money for entertainment, food, & necessities? Should I be saving more?

I save 50% of my income, which is great. But I have $900 spending money after I pay my bills ($750), and I go over every month (I have a second job to take care of the excessive spending). I feel like I am spending way too much and could be saving a lot more. I spent $370 on cabs and $800 on food so far this

I save 50% of my income, which is great. But I have $900 spending money after I pay my bills ($750), and I go over every month (I have a second job to take care of the excessive spending). I feel like I am spending way too much and could be saving a lot more. I spent $370 on cabs and $800 on food so far this February that seems a bit excessive.
I want to quit my second job and move out. But the way I'm spending I'm worried I'll be back with my parents halfway through the month.

tro:
cabs are expensive find a less expensive method
you probably eat well, as a single person if you spend $400-$500 a month(note eating out) that is probably normal
and if you have this kind of spending money maybe you are spending far to much on entertainment

Save up, you will need it.

If you are saving half your income you are doing well. If you don't pay for your own expenses like insurance, dental, rent you should be able to save more. Cabs aren't normal in most parts of the world but most people have a car or buses or subways so don't need that expense. Each of us budget according to what we value, that will change when you need to support yourself. Many people only have a couple hundred a month after savings and bills for things like dining out and hair cuts etc.

There's no formula. Calculate how much money you need and what you need to spend on.
