A word processing app is self-explanatory. I like using a spreadsheet for a lot of things. Obviously it calculates sums..but it also comes in handy organizing things that can be sorted alphabetically, by date, by subject etc. I once was more proficient in Excel but these days I use it in its most simplest form. Most of the other apps are nice to have but are geared for someone who does more computer work than you would.
Do you have a disk or copy of Word that you already have? It can be reinstalled. I don't see any place where Word can be purchased by itself and that's really all you need. You can get it within a 365 subscription. I see some places where they offer it free but it's only a trial copy or pirated according to reports. You can also look for an older copy, you don't need all the bells and whistles that the newer versions include.
