The cheapest/easiest/nice tasting bread is the Easy Baker bread mix. I make bread rolls using a muffin pan.
Mighty Mite is a gluten free alternative to Vegemite with a similar taste.
Cereals can be found in the Health Food section of the supermarket, but Black & Gold Cocoa Orbits are gf.
Make recipes per normal, using a gluten free flour.
What type of mains do you normally make? I have lots but it would be easier to know what you regularly have first.
Also is dairy an issue too? The 2 can go hand in hand, but not always.

Today's menu is
Breakfast of pancakes and Freedom Food cornflakes
Morning tea of yoghurt, banana and rice crackers
Lunch was salad roll, corn on the cob and an orange
Afternoon tea will probably be baked beans and a cupcake
Tea is zucchini slice, mash (potato, pumpkin, sweet potato, cauliflower), and boiled broccoli

The orgran website has some good recipes and I find their products to be a bit healthier than other packaged GF products which are often really processed and high in sugar. http://www.orgran.com/
You can get their products in Coles, Woolies and health food stores, or a wider range from online store.
One of the best GF products I use are rice crumbs. They are great for adding to rissoles etc or for crumbing fish, chicken etc and do not taste GF at all!
Aldi also have a GF range, but it tends to come and go from their stores.

Kan Tong have rice noodles for stir-fry or just use rice. Tamari sauce I found nicer than the other soy sauce so we have always used that. There are 3 brands of gf pasta that we buy, one starts with C (lol I can't remember it now) then there is Orgran and San Remo. The one starting with C is the alphabet noodles for alphabet soup, San Remo I prefer for macaroni or fettucini, Orgran lasagne sheets, and not real picky about spirals or thin spaghetti. They cook fast! If you cook too long the disintegrate lol.

Sorry for taking up heaps of room, but just wanted to point out other things.
Tomato sauce is still fine, as is chilli sauce, but not bbq sauce.
Baked beans in tomato sauce are fine, I still buy Heinz or SPC.
Orgran tinned spaghetti is foul. Just so you know.
CSR icing sugar is gf, the others are not.
Organ Outback Animals come in boxes, or share packs, just like Tiny Teddies and come in either vanilla or chocolate.
If you like Tim Tams, Mint Slice biscuits, Arrowroot biscuits, or pretty much any other type, there are substitutes in the health food sections.
Leda have Dunk-Ins which are like Dunkaroos.

A tip for visiting others for a meal (I do this when visiting my mum or brother). You know those small, foil take-away containers you can put in the oven? Every time we make potato bake, pasta bake, lasagne or zucchini slice, I make one of those containers as extra, then once cooled put the lid on (clearly marked with contents and date) and stick it in the freezer. Also plastic microwave containers are used for soup, pasta, stirfry, rissotto or fried rice. When we make these, I freeze a portion. Then if we go somewhere I can just take one of those. Take the cardboard lid off foil container before putting it in the oven. Orgran mini lasagne sheets are great for those small trays. I take her cutlery set and that way can guarantee there will be no chance of cross-contamination and other people won't need to worry about what to feed a gluten free guest.
