Look into building your own mash tun cooler.
Eventually, having a grain mill is a really nice thing.
Exactly what I did thus past year. Keggle on camp stove, cooler tun, and just purchased the cereal killer... Found a shop that sells 2 row 50# sacks for $42 too. Now to get some buckets and better weather. The only downside to brewing outside, plan on going with a recirculating pump next year so I don't have to use the hose.

I personally am not a fan of a keggle, but I know it works for a lot of you guys.

I picked up 2 for $40, already top cut off and drilled on the side... guy used it to make wine in, can't get a kettle for that ha... I would probably rather have one but on a serious budget. It works very well but think a proper kettle would be more efficient.

death by information. seriously though, you need to look around at the methods of brewing and decide how you want to do it, which may affect your equipment purchases. obviously there are differing opinions on what KIND of cooler you should use, but obviously one way to do it includes getting a large volume cooler. you can research why people use which brands.

BIAB and no chill methods require you to use less gear.... if that's what your'e into.

don't get overwhelmed with everyone's various preferences and find your own.

edit: fat finger
