The BBC website also has a section on cheap eats.
I remember when I was a student eating lots of rice dishes (simply frying the rice in some oil before adding a stock cube and any veggies / meat that I had hanging around), and using beans and pulses - bean stew was a favourite. Some fish, such as mackerel, is very cheap.
Shopping cheaply makes all the difference. If you go to East St market towards the end of the day you should be able to find produce being sold off cheaply.
