Find budget replacements for expensive cards. For example: Sol Ring . —> Worn Powerstone

well instead of say a Underground Sea you could glue an island and swamp together, though the glue might be more expensive than the two basics.

I suppose you could even just buy a sharpie and draw on a bunch of draft chaff and proxy a whole deck, I'm sure a casual playgroup would be fine with it.

(you maybe writing a comment about what you mean on top this, but this is somewhat fun)

ok, now I see Underground Sea -> Underground Sea a much bigger price drop from Sol Ring to Worn Powerstone

Though I feel this playlist of cards under $1 can cover most of these questions or just the whole youtube channel (if you ignore the part where he does deck techs not including the commander's price in the budget)

I find it easier to find budget options once you have a commander, strategy and what you want the deck to do

Here are some cards that may be useful but it varies Echoing Truth Vona's Hunger Rakdos Charm Into the Wilds Evil Twin Trygon Predator Blackblade Reforged Abundant Growth Elemental Bond
