Cheap lunch in Manhattan!

Yesterday, I found a delicious and huge banh mi on Broome street for $4.50. This made me think: there have to be, in my general vicinity, other good lunches that don't cost a lot. I generally pay $8 to $15 for lunch, and I'm tired of it, and I'm also fatigued from all the places I currently go. Tell me other (cheap) places to try! [more inside]

Help us eat healthy and save money with an infant

Mrs. Thabombshelter and I have a four month old son and would love to eat more meals that aren't takeout. Plus, with a baby, money is obviously a valuable and precious commodity. Easy prep and inexpensive ingredients are a priority. So please, help us with some suggestions for easy-ish, healthy-ish, cheap-ish meals that can help us avoid Papa Johns or Chinese takeout.

Where are some good value for money strip joints in London?

I am a man with certain needs, and yet I am constrained by my most unfortunate financial condition. Where might a discerning gentleman go in London to see the most flesh per pound exchanged? Preferences are given to those establishments with some standards, although if an establishment is less than reputable but has great character, I would be willing to give it a go. One for the memoirs, you understand.

24x40 poster frame on the cheap and easy?

I have a 24x40 poster that I would like to stick in a frame. I am reluctant to go to our local custom framing shop, because while they do very nice work, the price is usually in the >$100 range, which is more than I can spend right now. I've done some searching online, and haven't found great results, plus it is hard for me to assess the good vs. bad websites to purchase. Any recommendations on where I can get this size frame (or another size that my poster would look okay in - does not need to be super professional-looking), hopefully for less than $50? I can swing by a store like Target, but don't want to get into anything too complicated like looking at flea markets.

(Very, very) cheap and hopefully safe

Inspired by all these threads (1, 2, 3) I was wondering which products are much cheaper than other products in the same class, but offer comparable, or exceptional performance. Generally, I would suppose these would mainly come from Chinese companies that aren't very well-established internationally. [more inside]

Where do I buy cheap clay?

This question is as simple as it looks, and in my case I'm specifically interested in the Sacramento, California or SF Bay area. Where should I look to buy lots of really cheap pottery clay? I'm interested in 10-50lbs, and all different kinds of clay, but cheap is the key word.

Food for all

I'm thinking of starting a food- blog. The idea is to provide practical advice for people without money who want to eat good food made from good produce. I have decades of experience of being a poor foodie, but not much of writing or blogging. Any advice and all referencers will be valuable The blog will be in my own language (not english), at least to begin with.

Cheap Flights to Ireland

Can someone recommend a good site or service that will notify me of cheap flights to Ireland from NJ and when they are available?

Do other countries do this?

Cheap clothing worldwide: OK I see ads for very low dollar cost clothing which leads to short lifespans for those clothes and a never ending repeat cycle. Is this something other countries outside the US do for their garments? Do say German middle class parents buy cheap items for school or do they buy better grade products and buy them less often? Is the Wal-Mart/Ross/K-Mart junk clothing limited to the US? Same with cheap shoes, are the quality shoes found in German or Swiss or French stores better and therefore longer lived?

Cheap but bombproof II

A while back there was a thread regarding insanely overbuilt, reasonably-priced consumer goods "like an AK-47" such as the WRT54G and 90s Nokia phones. It was really useful to me, and by the looks of it it was to many other people. The sad thing is that it was closed in 2008, and lots of the products aren't on the market now or have had design changes. 4 years later, what products now deserve to sit in the cheap but bombproof category?
