Question about my First Try at Home Frying

Greetings serious eaters! After many years of wanting to fry foods at home but never trying for one reason or another, Superbowl Sunday will be my first time. I want to make fried wings and beer battered onion rings. My question: can I use one pot of peanut oil for both of these foods, or do I need to change it in between? It's SO EXPENSIVE so I'm trying to use as little as possible. Also, should I do the onion rings first? Seems smarter for sanitation, no? I have no idea about any of this and I'm just going to use a deep pot and oil, any tips appreciated!
