Next Piece of Gym Equipment?

I currently have just a 300 lbs barbell set and a cheap bench i was wondering what my next piece of equipment that i should purchase is. I have around 120$ and was thinking about getting those Olympic dumbbell handle things so i can use my weight plates on them any other suggestion?

I would save up and get a power cage.

Or at least some uprights and sawhorses.

I’d go for either vulcan racks on www.ironmind.com or the cheap version powerline on amazon:

This one is just basic but it’s only $170 with free shipping. And if you get the DB handles get the thick bar ones form ironwoody.com
