Help me understand humidifiers and purchase one that will help deal with my overly warm/dry winter apartment without breaking the bank. Difficulty level: Canadian!

I live in a small, three room + bathroom place in a major Canadian city. I am not very monied, but the dryness in my place is so bad it's causing physical discomfort. However when I start looking at humidifiers I am discouraged by trying to parse out what is good or bad and what will make an appreciable difference.
My bedroom is about 11"x11", and the living room is about twice that much square footage- the other challenge being that the entire apartment only has doors on the bathroom, front door, and closets, so I imagine need to humidify everything. All ceilings are old fashioned and thus very high. So, to achieve a non-sore nose and to stop waking up with dehydration headaches, how much should I also realistically expect to spend and how should I go about it?
