What you buy depends a lot on what you plan to make. You do not have to have a 72” extension on your table saw. Most woodworkers get by just fine without it. Quite a few garage woodworkers get by without a bandsaw and use a jig saw instead (again depending on what you plan to make).

If you are new to woodworking you might want to buy only the bare needed machines, like just a table saw, use it for a bit and decide if you really want to buy the rest. There are a lot of projects that can be done just fine with a table saw and finished lumber.
