Please Help with Lighting questions

I have photographed outside for the majority of my career. I am recently opening a studio and can’t get the lighting correct. Can anyone give me some behind the scenes tips on cheap light bulbs. Where is the cheapest place to get the bulbs and what kind of bulbs do I get. I have an older track light fixture that takes standard bulbs and I also have two aluminum fixtures that also takes standard bulbs. Everywhere I look I get get different feedback: some say flourescent light bulbs!!!, other say photo lights!!!, some just say a wattage….aahh!!!!! Please help, you can email me at with any helpful tips or info. Thanks-Billie
