Atlantic crossing

I'm planning a cross-Atlantic trip for July. Departure: Charleston, SC. Destination: West coast of Scotland. I might also want to put in at St. John's, Newfoundland.

I've been using various sources to help me select which charts and reference materials I'll need, but there's so many of them. Pilots, Sailing Directions, Light Lists, Tide Tables, Weather Broadcasts, hundreds of Charts.

Is there a resource which will help me narrow it down? I don't want to have to purchase all the charts of the U.S. East coast, but would like to have them just in case I need to put in somewhere unexpectedly. But that's a lot of charts and a lot of money.

For Europe I want light lists and Tide Tables and some general advice as well, not to mention charts.
Any advice to help me sort all this out?
