An SPSS refugee needs a stats package!

I've agreed to do a validation study for a client, so I'm looking for an inexpensive (under, say, $200) statistics package that will do descriptive stats, correlations, t-tests, and other simple analyses on a relatively small dataset (fewer than 500 cases). I went through graduate school and into my early career using SPSS and I was very comfortable with it. But I don't have access to SPSS now and it's just much too expensive for my little one-person company to purchase. Is there something akin to SPSS available? My statistical skills have gotten really rusty over the last several years so I'd like to avoid having to master a new style of interface (say, to use R or even Excel) while I'm also trying to get rid of the rust.
