HI Amanda,

You can use either Google keywords planner and Keyword tool for this.

Then you calculate that how many clicks do want then set your campaigns accordingly.

But remember keyword tool provide estimated Avg CPC so set your budget accordingly.

And Keyword tools only show the Estimated avg CPC Column when you sign in with your gmail or Adwords user id and password in this.

Good Luck!
