Ya the OP sounds cheapskate! Staying in temple is free and the following morning can follow the monks asking for alms. You save this on the food too.
As you can also save on you drink, go Patpong, see those left over beer in a jug, drink it. So you will not spent a single bht also
Also the street is free to sleep too, but make sure you have an empty bowl with you, I might drop you some coins.

Do you want nightly or monthly rates?
Ram is infested with 390 baht per night/3500 baht per month rooms.
The cheapest I know of is on Seri Thai soi 2, 2500 per month.
Asia Hotel on Happyland (rear of Tesco/Lotus) is about 5k per month.

I know of places where the monthly rent is 1600 to 1800 baht per month; electricity and water not included;
have to bring your own bed though

the cheap rooms are so way out of the typical tourist area, you sure you want to save on accommodation and spend the money on transportation?

I just got back from a holiday in bkk. Some of the time i stayed in Lad Prao soi 71 Soi Nakniwat 16. There were a load of apartment type places that rented by the day. I paid 500B for an air con room, hot water, fridge, bed, sofa, wardrobe. Plenty of other places in the soi too. Take a room on the second floor or up wherever you go.

Hire a long time g/f and stay at HER place that way you will only have beer to worry about.

I guess thats an okay area - I have a house in a nearby soi and have walked past that place. In fairness, it's fairly well located in that you can get the MRT which is a 10 minute walk from that Soi, or a taxi into Sukhumvit is around 70 baht. I'm not sure If I'd want to stay out there though if I was on holiday - although the chicken noodle stall at the end of 35 is bloody good.
Nearby 7/11 and family mart - plus a few small Thai bars in that area - if the OP is really a cheapskate, he could take a cushion and drink his Chang or Archa outside of the 7/11 with the local vagrant.

High class hotel that one - basically a short time hotel.

Now on my list, of places to avoid.
Can understand backpackers in Banglamphu looking for cheap digs, convenient for the sights and KSR itself is a bit of a scene.
Sukhumvit ? 300B a night ?
My concern would be is there enough dosh left over for condoms.
