I'm no nutritionist or anything but, I think it's always better to rely on whole foods for caloric and protein intake instead of weight gainers. One: it's better for you and two: it's cheaper.:)

But the best and cheapest bodybuilding foods are frozen chicken breasts, canned tuna or mackerel, brown rice, oatmeal, yams, sweet potatos, green veggies, and fruits like bananas and grapefruits. I buy all my food in bulk at Sam's Club and a $150 trip will usually get me 2 months worth of food. As opposed to the grocery store where $100 bucks worth of food lasts me a month.

You want cheap protein, you want skim milk. It tastes great!
With your glass of milk you could try this for a meal
Beans are cheap, but remember to mix in a grain so you get you a complete amino acid set.
Baked beans and brown rice tastes suprisingly nice and it is cheap bulk. Add some premium protein into the mix if your feeling fancy and want to spend more then $1 on the meal.
Into this I alway mix in a couple of teaspoons of monounstaturated fat. I like cold pressend virgin olive oil for this, but that can be quite pricey.
This meal is cheap.
This meal has all the amino acid sets.
This meal is full of essential fatty acids.
This meal cost less than a doller.

eat a lot of beans. buy them dry. by far the cheapest protein you can buy, and lots of calories.

and lots of milk and eggs. cheaper than meat.

Burger and pasta are cheap bulk foods.

olive oil's monofats aren't essential...
