Getting enough protein

Rookie question. Just doing the math and it seems getting enough protein per day is ridiculously expensive. Chicken turned out the cheapest but is still almost $90 a month/$3 a day. How do you all getting your protein needs met without breaking the bank?

Total calories have to constantly be increased as you gain muscle?

So I thought about this for a bit. You need about a 200 calorie surplus to "lean" bulk.

I'm guessing that for someone...
