Where to begin while just starting to prepare a repertoire?

I am a self-learning chess player. While I am ambitious about strengthening my game, I have no intention of becoming a professional player or spending a ton of money on chess, owing to the cost factor. So, where can I begin to prepare an opening repertoire using free resources? Also, suggest good free resources for developing a positional playing sense if any known.

Lichess has some good resources. Take a look at them
For making an opening repertoire you can use the lichess study and open explorer: and lichess opening explorer.
To learning HOW to make/build a repertoire ask on lichess forum including tips.
(Although they don't recommand making a repertoire for beginners.)
To learn (positional) chess I personally would recommand some (lichess) streamers.
