Need help with school project

Hello everyone,
I would like your assistance on what Arduino boards, shields, kits and accessories do I need for my project which is a GSM based vending machine. I have used other programs like NXT and LabVIEW and just to be clear this is my first time using Arduino.
Thanks!

You need an Arduino and a GSM Shield, and I suspect you will need a keypad, and probably a small display, and most likely you will need some sort of relay shield to control your actuators

You will need to provide more information.
