In Paris travel by Metro and buy "CARNET" of 10 tickets. It's much cheaper than buying them singly A ticket allows you take a single journey. 10 tickets cost 12.50€
Keep away from buying coffee and snacks in big touristy places. A coffee normally costs about 1€ but on the Champs Elysee it can cost almost 10€
Tap water is safe to drink all over France, and most restaurants will put a jug of water on the table if you are eating.
The French eat their main meal at lunchtime. You will find many full menus available at lunchtime for not too much money. Look for "Menu" and a price. It's usually about 3 or 4 courses . I usually look for a menu including wine for under 15€
Pick up a free map of the metro and bus system at the metro station, and plan your trips so that you are not going back over the same ground.
I'm afraid it's just a case of being vigilante to avoid being ripped off. But you always have the option to walk away if you think it's not value for money.
Look for restaurants with local people rather than tourists. Maybe they'll be reading a French newspaper.

I likely spend $5 a week on such issues as extra darkish chocolate (even besides the indisputable fact that in my opinion that is no longer a junk foodstuff), and if i can get my palms on vegan varieties then i recognize salt and vinegar chips too.
