Default If you could only afford one, which one for strength and recovery?

I've never been very big on supplements, but as I get more serious about my strength training and general fitness I have started including some. I am a student and I only make around $1000-$1200 a month after taxes, and with various bills due to poor decisions in the past I don't have a lot of income left over. I currently take glucosamine sulphate for joints, a couple fish oil capsoles a day, and BCAA's (branch chain amino acids). I don't want to continue spending a tenth of my income on supplements so I'm going to cut out the glucosamine.

I eat a decent portion of protien after a train, but I'm wondering if my money would be better spent on some whey containing BCAA's or if I should continue with the pre/intra workout stnad alone BCAA's, or if there is a better supplemnet all together for strength and recovery. I'm going to continue with the fish oil for general health, so the title of the post is a little misleading.

What is your go to supplement for hard training?
