Making do

I have been out of the hobby a short while (1950-60) and at my age, I am no longer the sharpest tack in the box.-

Some of my stuff is starting to arrive (all in the wrong order) so I am improvising. Plants are in a clear plastic storage drawer with small light and power head with a large sponge on intake. Ammonia hit 8.0 and I did a 90% water change. My additives are on their way.

Anyway, I will be getting my 60 gallon tank in a few days and I need some substrate but don't want to spend $120.00 plus tax. Now I have 40pds of CaribSea Eco-Complete Planted Aquarium Substrate on the way but I need to finish the rest out with something more reasonably priced. I thought a combination of possibly clay kitty litter and the whole thing capped with a really course sand==real course.

What I need is brands and where to purchase. The more research I do, the more confused I get. I have to rely on others for transportation and that doesn't help.
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
