Default Newbie lookin for some advice

Hello everyone. I am new to this and right now my 95 Bonneville SE is stock except for a JCV cd changer in the trunk. I am looking for some easy and cheap upgrades.
I am a married father of two, unemployed student, so for nows mods must be easy and cheap, as well as not interfere with the car being a daily driver/family vehicle.

I just noticed that you can't see the writing on my avatar. It says "you can't pee on what you can't catch!"

Yep do a CAI/FWI, high flow cat, exhaust, full compreshensive tuneup.

I can tell you that when I did a full tuneup which consisited of replacing spark plugs, wires, TPS, cleaning TB, and cleaning the MAF I had more performance gains than doing a CAI and high flow cat.
