These prices are what I paid, from assorted online stores, walmart, and my local pet store. So you might find these items for less, or for more, depending on where you live.

10 Gallon tank: $50 (Kit that came with a filter + net.)
15 lbs of gravel: $12
Heater: $22
Food: $18 (I bought multiple kinds.)
Decorations: $60 (An estimate. I bought ten silk plants, and five pieces of decor for a little over $60.)
API Freshwater Test Kit: $22
Air Pump + Stones: $15
Turkey Blaster: $2
Water Conditioner: $14
Kanaplex Medication: $9
Aquarium Salt: $7
Background + Mounting Liquid: $9
Filter Cartridges (Sponge + Carbon): $11
Fluorescent Bulbs: $30
Thermometer: $2
Gravel Vacuum: $10
Water Change Buckets: $14

For a grand total of $307 (Canadian.)

Of course, most of this is not required for a Betta! I only spent this much because I had the money to spare.
*whistle* That's impressive.

Hey everyone thanks for all the ideas I will defiantly do some more looking into. Plus before I can do anything I have to get rid of my sugar gliders(flying squirrels ) so that will give me some time to save up enogh money to give my new betta a happy and healthy, hopefully long life.
