New Year's break in Paris, on the cheap

My girlfriend and I have won a week's holiday in Paris over the new year period. Flights, bed, and breakfast are covered -- how can we stretch our food and entertainment budget?

We're not really impoverished and don't mind the occasional nice meal out, but 14 meals in the land of the 12-euro beer is still going to make a bit of a dent in our modest finances. Normally we'd self-cater but the prize terms didn't give us that option. So I'd appreciate any tips on cheap everyday eating (either specific places or general advice) and inexpensive fun stuff to do -- especially indoor stuff, given the season. We'll be staying at the southern edge of Montmartre (nearest metro: Pigalle). I've only been in Paris once, very briefly, and she's never been, so don't be afraid to point out the potentially obvious :).
