Well first off, heres a little list at the top of my head of good items that arent too expensive.
Oats, rice, tuna, ground beef, green veggies, PB, eggs, dextrose, cottage cheese, chicken, walnuts etc.
So you can start off working with that.
Also, before bed
I like to eat a cup of cottage cheese, since you get the benefits from the casein protein. i take it with 8 egg whites and 1tbsp of flax oil, or 1/4 cup or walnuts.
This should leave you feeling full.
Aside form that, you can take that little list I gave u, feel free to add on to it, and check out the bulking sticky and make your diet following that guideline.
You should be all set!

cornbread is the cheapest way.
Good as hell. Good nutritional content. Costs 25-33cents a box and has about 900 calories in it.

best thing before bed, especially if bulking, is 30-60 grams of whey protein and some high glycemic carbohydrate (ie simple sugars) like dextrose, orange juice, etc. You don't want a lot of the carbohydrate, but enough to spike yoru insulin levels, as insulin plays a large role in protein transport into cells. What you eat before bed is almost as important as PWO, IMO. Your body does most of its growing at night (the same hormones that regulate your sleep/wake cycle stimulate your GH production; your pineal gland), and right when you fall asleep is when your body releases most of it's daily GH.

Growth Hormone Secretion during Sleep

Plasma growth hormone (GH), insulin, cortisol, and glucose were measured during sleep on 38 nights in eight young adults. Blood was drawn from an indwelling catheter at 30-min intervals; EEG and electrooculogram were recorded throughout the night. In seven subjects, a plasma GH peak (13-72 mμg/ml) lasting 1.5-3.5 hr appeared with the onset of deep sleep. Smaller GH peaks (6-14 mμg/ml) occasionally appeared during subsequent deep sleep phases. Peak GH secretion was delayed if the onset of sleep was delayed. Subjects who were awakened for 2-3 hr and allowed to return to sleep exhibited another peak of GH secretion (14-46 mμg/ml). Peak GH secretion was not correlated with changes in plasma glucose, insulin, and cortisol. The effects of 6-CNS-active drugs on sleep-related GH secretion were investigated. Imipramine (50 mg) completely abolished GH peaks in two of four subjects, whereas chlorpromazine (30 mg), phenobarbital (97 mg), diphenylhydantoin (90 mg), chlordiazepoxide (20 mg), and isocarboxazid (30 mg) did not inhibit GH peaks. Altered hypothalamic activity associated with initiation of sleep results in a major peak of growth hormone secretion unrelated to hypoglycemia or changes in cortisol and insulin secretion.

truly unbelievable....I think he was serious too.....anyways, casein and some healthy fats.....I do about 1 cup (250g) dry curd cottage cheese and a couple good size handfuls of peanuts,almonds, pistachios, etc......IMHO, ideal.
