Default Coming back to tying and need materials

I am getting back into fly tying after a few year hiatus and I am wondering how most efficiently and cost effectively start re-accumulating tying materials. I have vise and tools, but I am dismally short on hooks, beads, chenille, fur, feathers, etc.

Do I start by purchasing a base set of materials for the flies I expect to tie most for my area (CO front range and rocky mountains)?

Or do I get only what I need for the first couple of flies I want to tie this week, and build-up materials as needed fly-by-fly?

Any thoughts on how to best go about this re-start? I can see arguments for both approaches and perhaps a blend of the two. I would appreciate any input that you may have. Thanks.
