Ask at the grocery store and farmers market if they have any veggies/fruits that are "damaged" (bruised, broken etc.) that they would give you. Your tegu won't mind :)

I order live chicks from Cackle Hatchery specifically the frypan special. The fry pan special is a surplus of male egg layers and if you order 100 it comes out to .50 per chick.

Ya I highly recommend not live feeding it make your tegus more aggressive and if you were to get bit tends to be worse because then they always head shake

I'f I need to travel for 3 days will my tegu be okay to be alone .? I love him so much I want to make sure he's safe!..?

Put the lights on a timer so they go on and off for 12 hours. Put extra water out. If you use a kitty litter box, change it before you leave (yes, they WILL use the box, if they get used to it when they're young).

I wonder if they'll eat dry cat food kibble?!

They might. I'm just not sure if they should because it's so dry.
