The above list is a short list of suggested free online coursers. The cost for following one or two of these courses can be managed under US $100. Also you can post any engineering questions here on electronic stackexchange or engineering stackexchange. This should get you started.
Firstly, you will need to clarify what exactly do you mean by "How can I get started with electronic engineering" . Do you want to learn theory and stuff, or do you want a practical exposure and tinker around stuff ?
If you wish to learn theory and study electronics, grab some books on basics and / or find some courses. I would suggest you to start with electrical networks and electronic devices. These are the basic things you must know (apart from mathematics) before going any further. Further from there you can look into digital and analog electronics.
If however your intent is tinkering, I would suggest you to get some development board like Arduino or Raspberry Pi, a breadboard, few Leds, motors etc. There are plenty of good tutorials on the net like instructables which house a wide range of projects to cater to everyone's interests.
Are you in college still or do you have any nights free? Take a college course, community college night class, a mook, or go to a robotics/chip maker/EE meetup. One of things you might find interesting is Instrucables. Sometimes the best way to learn is by doing. Make something simple you want and will actually finish. Another way is go to the thrift store and buy some broken electronics and learn how to troubleshoot then fix them.
