To cut costs in Sao Paulo, start with your food budget. First, avoid the tourist areas, such as Avenida Paulista, says resident and travel blogger Deise de Oliveira of Viagem pelo Mundo. "The best way to save money on food is to go to simple bakeries and ask for a 'PF,' or prato feito," she says. "It's usually a well-served dish with rice, beans, meat and salad. Sometimes it's so much food that two people can eat!"
