What baking staples should I have on hand?

My wife and I were given a Kitchenaid stand mixer for our wedding, and I'm totally stoked to have it and start doing real weekly baking. I hate running out to the store to get ingredients every time I find that I need them, so I need to know what kinds of things I should buy in bulk. If I want to make, say, molasses cookies at the drop of the hat I don't want to suit up and run to the store.
Things I intend on making include, but are definitely not limited to: Cookies, cupcakes, real cakes, breads (SO MANY BREADS,) muffins, et al. You know, the basics.
I'm okay with having to run out to get blueberries and bananas for blueberry banana nut bread. I'm okay with having to pick up things that will go bad, like blueberries and bananas. I just need to know what to grab in bulk that will keep.
Thanks in advance, if I could I would make every one of you guys delicious bread.
(Favorite baking recipes are acceptable answers, too!)
