Re: Beginner big time.....
Welcome to Beesource!
The starter kit you referenced is not a bad deal, but you may find that it has items that you don't really need, certainly not to start with.
I personally would try to afford two packages of bees, and enough hive components for two hives. If money is tight, buy the hive body components you really need. Especially if you are close enough to do in-person pickups at Western, wait to buy some of those things til you really need them. You can start out with just a veil, and a white long sleeved sweatshirt from a thrift store. You don't necessarily need a full jacket.
My point is, spend your money on the bees and hive bodies, but start with two, instead of one hive. Two gives you many more options if you have a bee problem somewhere along the way.
