Default What to buy?

The in-laws gave me $50 to Midwest Supplies for my birthday. I'm thinking of buying a 5-gallon carboy for lagering.

My thinking is to primary in the 6.5 gallon fermenting bucket for 2-3 weeks, then 12 weeks in the 5-gallon carboy in a temp-monitored dorm fridge.

What say you? Any suggestions/tips/ideas?

That is what im doing with two of my lagers. If you have a dorm fridge. I would go with a plastic carboy. I have both and im so scared of breaking the glass one. just a suggestion.
