Depends on what to make. There are many options to chose from if you know what to make. I might consider the challenge.

Dollars add up fast, 50 parts and your up to $50.00 and then there is the sales tax.

Homework assignment?

I'd suggest you start by scanning what's already on Instructables. There are a fair number of low-budget 'ibles.
