I bought a flash first (about $90), then the 35mm 1.8, but I'm mostly photographing my kids.  I am more concerned about learning how to use everything (I'm about a year in on the D5100) than getting gear after that initial wave of wanting to buy more stuff subsided after getting the camera in my hands.

Lenses are so expensive waiting to make sure you can't live it without it and renting it first is probably the right approach for me.

I think my next purchase will be the Nikon 16-85 (to replace the kit lens and give a little more range).  When I get it will depend on how hard I beg my wife.  I don't have an intense need to make pictures of birds and I won't ever be able to afford the 70-200 2.8.
