If I could make a suggestion, stick with buying singles or maybe fiver’s for a while, it’s likely that your taste will change quite a bit over the next year or so. The what are you smoking threads are a great place to get ideas also!
Any recommendations of sticks I should try?

Have @Bostoneo send you a sampler, best advice I could give. I overbought a bunch of crap when I first started smoking, and samplers really helped to narrow down my first palette preference.
Beyond that, as Tom mentioned, don’t bother spending money on cheap smokes. They serve a purpose, but you’ll save a lot of money and time by jumping over the garbage and going to the midrange.
Good beginner budget sticks include:
Brickhouse Robusto (not Fuma)
Fuente Hemingway Short Story
Black Label Trading - Killer Bee
Warped - Corto X46
Tatuaje Tattoo, Havana VI
My Father - Flor de las Antilles, Le Bijou 1922, Don Pepin Blue
Dunbarton Tobacco - Mi Querida, Sobremesa
Laranja Espinosa (Orange Band)
And the list goes on. Most of these can be found for $5-7 a smoke, with a little patience and searching.
Cigarpage.com and Cigarmonster.com are some good resources.
I’m going to suggest what others have and skip the budget sticks in favor of something mid-range or better.
However, this is my philosophy for life.
I may not have a lot of $$, but the things I do choose to spend it on follow that logic.
