I would just buy the larger rear panniers first. If you are doing just a day trip at the beginning you could fit everything you need in ONE of the rear panniers and leave the other one at home. You might not every feel the need in the future for front panniers (and a front rack) if you don't cook while on tour or aren't 50+ miles away from a food source (rare).
