A checklist for the modern yoyoer?

So, I am pretty new to yoyoing (3 months) and I was wondering what would be the things an average yoyoer would need?

I hope this will also be useful to other people as well. Please post your ideas/comments on what should be on the list!

[ ] Beater (debatable)
[ ] String (LOTS of it!)
[ ] Lube
[ ] Case/Storage
[ ] Flowable Silicone
[ ] Other various response pads
[ ] Bearing Removal Tool
[ ] Replacement Axel
[ ] Replacement Bearings
[ ] Counterweight(s)
[ ] Shims/Spacers
[ ] Trick List
[ ] Progress Journal/Notebook

After yoyoing for a year my ideal checklist is:
[ ] Yoyo(s)
Main Throw(s)
Pocket-sized yoyo(s)
Beater/4A/5A yoyo
Other awesome yoyos because you love collecting yoyos
[ ] String (in tons of colors too)
[ ] Lube
[ ] Yoyo case (that I’ve made myself)
[ ] Response pads
[ ] Replacement bearings (ideally a healthy mix of Konkaves, Center-Traks, SPEC, and 10-balls)
[ ] Bearing-removal tool (coming soon, until then it’s my Leatherman)
[ ] The Internet
