Default Singapore Math Manipulatives?

I'm preparing to order the second set of Early Bird Kindergarten math workbooks from Singapore. After looking through Singapore's forum, I found that several different manipulatives are recommended. However, money is an issue, and I don't want to waste money for things that are not really needed.I am considering buying a set of 1 cm multi-link cubes, a clock w/ geared hands, and a bucket balance. Has anyone else used Singapore math, and if so which manipulatives did you find most useful? I am hesitant about the hundred chart, counters, and weights.
