Learning about brushes

I am still confused abut the types of brushes available. I have bristle, sable, artificial, and cheapies. I haven't figured out the proper use of any of them. I've just been trying them all and eliminating the ones that don't seem to make sense in the affect I am trying to achieve.

Can someone give me guidance on the type, shape, size and costs for brushes when working with acrylics?

I am very excited that I found this website!  I am new at painting (dormant talent for most of my life) and am really enjoying it!  I discovered how much I don't know and hope to learn from you all!
