Here are a couple of different choices.
Tool Kit - Intermediate
I like this one because it has a Third hand with a magnifier and a nicer set of wire strippers. Both items I bought shortly after starting this whole electronics thing.
I'm thinking for the $30 you save, you could buy the spools of wire, a set of screwdrivers and a Panvise and still come in around $100.
They also had two other packages available. One cheaper. One more expensive.
Ladyada's Electronic Toolkit
This setup is very similar to the MakerShed kit. Has a small breadboard and parts to build a power supply. Doesn't have the screwdrivers and Maker's log. It's $14 cheaper.
(Note: The multimeter shown here is not the one that comes with the kit)
I saw lots of kits that included a soldering iron and minimal tools in the 15-25 dollar range. I tried to find a list somewhere of the essential tools every beginner should have, but to no avail. If anyone has a link to such an animal, let me know. Or links to other beginners start-up kits.
