The first year will probably be the coldest for you, but after that, you'll start to acclimate. Instead of buying something really expensive that you may not wear again next year, go with thermals, a couple hoodies, a couple scarves, and some really good thick wool socks. You can layer up when you're feeling cold, and in future years when you've become used to the cold, you can wear all those items separately. You'll add a lot to your wardrobe without it costing a lot.

Many good suggestions here. May I also throw out that you can save big money by checking thrift stores such as Goodwill, church-run stores, etc. You can often find barely-used or like-new items of clothing for pennies on the dollar. Of course, you have to look carefully. Best of luck!
