It really really depends on what kind of projects you’re working on, personally I find I get the most use out of 6” and 12” one handed bar and F-stlye clamps, and 2” and 4” C-clamps. I stock up on Irwins when Menards has the occasional sale, also the Pittsburgh brand from Harbor Freight is a good quality and inexpensive (esp when they’re on sale, tho I try to stay away from the HF Central Forge clamps – yes they’re cheap in price, but they’re cheap in construction too)

Unless you find a great sale, anything over 24” I’d say pick up some HF pipe clamps, thats probably the most economical.
