I am clueless about how much bandwidth I'll need when I start looking over hosting options.

For example, a tshirt site that does $1k in sales a month might need how much bandwidth?

Can someone point me in the right direction or provide a link that might give me an idea of how much I'll need?

Grrr... sorry, just found the answer for myself. In case anyone else was wondering, LunarPages gives a good example.

From LunarPages
For your site to use more than 800 GB of transfer/bandwidth your site would have to be receiving a large number of visitors on a daily basis and/or have many pages that are being accessed.

Example: Every time one of your web pages is viewed by someone on the internet, the size of that page goes towards your bandwidth usage. Below is an example of how many times a page would have to be viewed to reach 100 GB of transfer
30 KB pages = 104,857,600 / 30 = 3,495,253 views
40 KB pages = 104,857,600 / 40 = 2,621,440 views
50 KB pages = 104,857,600 / 50 = 2,097,152 views
60 KB pages = 104,857,600 / 60 = 1,747,626 views

Yeah, bandwidth is something you probably don't need to worry too much about. Most hosts give you WAY more than you'll ever conceivably use.
