Here are the items I got approximately four months ago when I started:

CCM V05 Shin Guards $30
Easton Synergy ST4 Pants $50
Used/Unknown nike Shoulder Pads $14
Bauer 1500 w/ Cages $40
Easton S3 elbow $30
Reebok 3k Gloves $35
Shock Doctor Jock $30
Crappy Bauer Skates $30 (They broke, so I got a good deal on used RBK 5ks for $75
Bauer Supreme One55 wooden stick: $25


~$329

This equipment was perfectly fine for open hockey/beer league and has served me well. I have since gotten a few more sticks, and I hope to get some new skates soon.

I could argue that the two things you should splurge on at first (at least a little) are helmet and skates. I feel like for beer league/open hockey, even the crappiest of gear (read: mine) is fine. If I ever get in a checking league you can bet I'll at least be upgrading my shoulder pads.
