You can buy inexpensive lamps if you know how to use them and know what you need. It doesn't have to be thigh-end pro for casual shooting. But for 8 hours a day, 7 days a week, you need the good lights--or they'll melt or explode right in front of you.

As a learning experience, sketch and post here--or explain it--one scene that you want to shoot, and ask for suggestions on how to light it. I guarantee you that you CAN do it just fine with inexpensive lights from Home Depot or Lowes, with some improvisation and proper set-up.
