You don't want to carry too much.

Small basic first aid kit. (real basic)
Cheap emergency poncho (the kind you can fit in a pocket)
A whistle. Fox 40 pealess. You should not go in the woods without one.
Definitely a basic orienteering compass and some flagging tape
Gloves (if you have briars)
Walking stick (they come in handy for many reasons - you can get a cheap one at Wally World)
lip balm
TP
Extra socks (wet socks are real uncomfortable if you get wet feet)

For what you need at this stage, WalMart is just fine - Dicks Sporting Goods sells a fox 40 mini but I really had a hard time locating one locally when I lost my old one. They all sell them with peas in them.

I watch campmoor for closeout sales and brigade quartermaster and there are whole lots of places with neat gear.
