The Canary Islands are cheaper than mainland Spain, as they don't pay the same taxes. Everything was on the whole much cheaper than at home.

There are "bonobus" cards that give you 10 bus journeys for 5 euros. And buy a Movistar SIM card, as it is a good value network and there is a shop near Avenida Mesa y Lopez that gives you 16% extra free when you top up! You can also get your phone unlocked at plenty of phone shops near the beach.

Buy in Las Palmas, Tourist resorts in South seemingly cheap, but much cheaper in the North of Island. Local supermarkets ( 'Hyperdino') are much cheaper than larger commericial shopping departments such as Corte Ingles ( however good quality).
