If you don't already have it, fermentation temp control. One of the most important brew improvements you'll ever make.

Temp control gets my vote.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Without a chest freezer or some sort of chiller/heater box temp control wouldn't do much.

An oxygenation setup is a good thing to have.

$60? Psh too rich for my blood. Ebay aquarium digital temp controller (STC-1000) for under $30.

Yep, but you need (should have) a relay on the compressor side.

+1 to fermentation temperature control. After that, a stirplate and bigass erlenmyer. After that, oxygen system.

Brewers make wort, yeast make beer. Treat your yeast well before you buy anything for the brewer.

- Get 100 spicy chicken sandwiches from Carl's Jr. (Or Hardees). Of course, taxes might bring this a bit over the budget.
- 5 Lapdances
- Break it up into 100 individual dollar bills and roll around naked in bed tonight with them before the world ends (Or did it already?)
