"This shopping list includes all of the books and equipment you’ll need for the first year of Hogwarts."
—Description[src]
A Shopping List[1] is given to students attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry each year before their first term starting in September, listing what supplies they will need for that year.

For first years, it comes along with their Hogwarts acceptance letters, for third years,[2] it comes along with Hogsmeade forms,[3] and for sixth years, it is received with their O.W.L. results.[4] The Shopping List tells students what equipment they will need for that year; it includes books, robes and other wizarding paraphernalia. The different books and items are chosen by the teachers of each subject, so if the school has a new teacher, the books required for that subject may change. Not everyone in a particular year will need the same supplies, as students do not always take the same subjects. If a student does not have sufficient funds for an adequate reason, Hogwarts will supply a small amount to buy their supplies, although some things will have to be bought second-hand.[5][6] Muggle-born wizards and witches can exchange their Muggle money for Wizarding money at Gringotts Wizarding Bank to pay for their supplies.[7] All of the necessary Hogwarts' supplies can be bought in Diagon Alley.[2]
