Affordable Food

Let's face it: living in Paris isn't cheap! Though it doesn't have to be as expensive as it may seem in movies, TV series, on social media, and the like, it's not the most affordable city in the world either. So it helps when some of your regular costs can be lowered than normal. A perfect example are your food costs.
