Everything you need to start off with can be found right here, on this site   ;):  http://www.societyofrobots.com/step_by_step_robot.shtml

For parts check out this page:  http://www.societyofrobots.com/robot_parts_list.shtml

For help with code/mechanics/electonics, look on SoR's friendly forum:  http://www.societyofrobots.com/robotforum/

for my $50 robot, the stores i bought my stuff at were:  www.digikey.com,
radioshack (also buy helping hands from here - or digikey),
www.robotshop.ca
https://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=3846&Product_Name=Futaba_Servo_Lead_Male_30CM  (for servo extention leads - they plug right into the pins on the $50 board, so i just soldered the free ends to my photoresistor sensors),
i also took a trip to my local suplus store for a cheap soldering iron (get a stand for it also).

well, no beginner can start in this field without the following:
multimeter,
soldering iron,
decent workspace
and a mind willing to learn...
if you have these things you are good to go.
