I’m not a fan of multiple block planes—but I see the Stanley LAAM as a “must have.”
You can do 90% of the cheek fitting with that plane; that last bit closest the shoulder is a job for a shoulder plane—which has other uses.

I personally know at least 3 guys that bought the LN rabbeting block and all would tell you that they hardly ever use them.

THE BEST advice I can give you is slow down—there is a natural tendency to try and acquire everything once you’ve discovered hand tools—but you are better off buying what you need as projects dictate. The money goes a lot farther that way.
