CONFUSED!!! - Where to begin?!

Hi. Poured through the Arduino site and partner store sites and was greeted with tons of products. :~

Would anyone happen to have a friendly Getting Started guide on what to buy if one wants to start tinkering with Arduino?

Let's just say I'd want to create the simplest of projects just to start off ... which product/s should I get? did not help at all. :(

Thank you very much.

I got started with this :

just this week.

So called 'starter' kits are popular for those wanting a more structured way to learn rather then just jumping into some custom project.
