. Find a few projects that look interesting and use that as a starting point for your parts inventory. . Find a breadboard that fits your budget. . Get a decent digital VOM. These have gotten ridiculously cheap. . Build a power supply from a kit. 0-15V at 1A should do. I used a dual tracking model with V and I meters, but that may not fit your budget. .
