Getting some accessories for my scope

Phew, astronomy is not an expensive hobby, stargazing IS!
I just barely got a scope which is my Orion Starblast 4.5,
and after trying it out for the first time, i found out there are a few more things i need to purchase to enhance the "experience".
As my starblast came with a 20mm Meade eyepiece and a 6mm "Palia" no brand cheap EP, my next objective to get a decent 32mm EP most likely from Televue, a 6mm or 7mm Televue Plossl and a TV barlow 2X.

Tomorrow i'm going to meet a guy from the forum and get the Barlow from him. It cost me $130 after some serious negotiations hahaha
Overall i saved about $50 as compare to getting a new one.

So now all i need to do is wait for my next pay and get the 2 eyepiece from Televue and i should be ready to put my eyes to the skies again.
