Never buy X again!

I was thinking about Steve Jobs buying a closet full of black turtlenecks so he didn't have to make that decision every day. I also saw some recent charts that showed purchasing trends for different age groups, and noted that once people buy good flatware they don't make an additional purchase. It occurred to me that, at my age (mid-forties) I could conceivably purchase a lifetime supply of socks.
What are items that a person of average means could purchase in sufficient quantities to last them the rest of their life?

Ideally, these would be purchases where the items in question would increase the quality of one's life through having made the purchase.
Have you done this thing?--Bought a lifetime supply of your favorite pencil, or socks, or paperclips? What was your methodology for determining the amount?
