The cheapest way to travel is by bus (see www.eurolines.com). Train is a little bit more expensive but much faster.
(all infos on www.Thalys.com).
You can get good deals on flights but if you include airport taxes and transportation to/from the airport it will probably be more expensive than train and won't be any faster.

Here are a few figures regarding the cost of living in Paris:
- 1 coffee: roughly 1.50 to 2 euros for a standard size coffee served at the counter. Much more for a large coffee served at the terrasse
- 1 bread baguette: around 1 euro
- 1 croissant: around 1 euro
- 1 kebab: 5 to 7 euros
- 1 nice restaurant at a reasonable price: 15 to 20 euros
- 1 metro pass for 1 day: 8.40 euros
