They mix and match with the Bics and Sharpies, which I bought in the big packs with coupons at Target and Office Depot. It works, and it doesn't cost a fortune for decent color selection.

I just couldn't justify spending hundreds of dollars on a coloring medium because I don't color that much and this is just a hobby for me.
Birds of a feather, Late Blossom. That's exactly what I have done. Bics and Sharpies, and fill in with pale Copics with coupons. I do love to color, but just don't have the budget for a whole set of Copics. I'm very happy with my system.
