That's fine. You're on the right track by replacing the water pump, etc. Good job, Coolant can wait. In all likelihood, your expansion tank and thermostat are the first to fail. If I were you, being on a budget, Id replace the expansion tank, thermostat, water pump and belts.

Add the two hoses + sensor on the lower hose if you're feeling generous...

If you're feeling even more generous, add the three tensioner pulleys.

If you're feeling like an absolute stud, replace the radiator.
