Pricey Chuck Roast: Affordable Beef Substitute?

I have always used chuck roasts for pot roast and beef stew — two of my favorite comfort meals, and easy affordable dinners with lots of leftovers. The price of the chuck roast has skyrocketed. Any suggestions for an alternative cut? Skirt steak is nearly impossible to find around here, but I was curious if that would work. Maybe short ribs or country ribs are cheaper?

I don't shop much and am not too familiar with current pricing on other cuts of meat. TIA!
