Fast food is already pretty cheap.

That's the appeal beyond the guilty pleasures of sugar and grease—it's so affordable to nab a cheat meal.

Some chains are making it even easier for us to justify those late-night burger runs.

Pizza Hut just debuted a $5 Flavor Menu, with value items for $5 each when you order two or more. That includes a medium one-topping pizza, 8 boneless wings, and more affordable options.

Del Taco's also getting in on the value menu game, expanding their Buck & Under menu to feature 16 items. We're rolling in $1 Chicken Rollers now, y'all. Life is good.

McDonald's may be kicking their Dollar Menu to the curb, but the fast food giant is still giving us dollar items. Their new McPick 2 menu lets you pair two items for $2.

Why choose between fries and mozzarella sticks when you can have both?

Beyond the chains introducing new bargain burger deals and more are the value menu classics we just can't get enough of.

Burger King's 5 for $4 deal, for example, makes sure you're getting that balanced meal of a bacon cheeseburger, crispy chicken nuggets, small fries, small drink and a chocolate chip cookie for super-cheap.

As for Taco Bell, we're all about those combos. A Crunchwrap Slider Big Box makes it easy to try several things for $5. Because one Crunchwrap Slider is not a meal for an adult person. We're not messing around here.

Besides, if that's not enough, we can always tack on some items from their Dollar Cravings selection. We'll take as many Triple Layer Nachos as we can carry.

Among our favorite cost-effective menus out there, Wendy's Right Price, Right Size Menu is a top pick, thanks to all the choices of what we can get.

Burgers, fries, wraps, Frostys, chili... you can basically throw a Wendy's party for whatever change you have floating around in your wallet.

It's totally OK to bend the rules on those New Year's resolutions when you're saving money, right?
