What is worth stocking up on?

The other day I ran out of deodorant and quick ran to Target. Only to find an hour later that I was out of laundry detergent. DAGNABBIT! I immediately vowed to buy 100 of everything so as to severely minimize my number of trips to stupid stores.
But now I am wondering...what can I really stock up on? I assume toothpaste will last forever, so buying 10 tubes is no problem. Ditto deodorant, toofbrushes, TP, toilet bowl cleaner etc.
Is there anything that on first glance might *seem* stock-uppable but really isn't? Are there things that you personally stock up on that other people might not have considered?
Also...What food items will last forever? Not 6 months, forever. Cuz I don't want to micromanage expiry dates. But whatever food stuff would last forever I'd be up for hoarding. Salt I assume, but not herbs/spices right? Cooking oil? Honey I hear lasts indefinitely. Anything else?
