This will get you started, then add, add!
sugars (granulated, brown and powdered)
nuts (pecans or walnuts)
chocolate (cocoa, chips, baking squares etc.)
fresh and/or powdered milk
For even more dessert making options:
more extracts like lemon, peppermint, almond etc.
sweetened condensed milk
nuts (almonds, macadamias)

Don't forget about,
ground all spice
peppermint of some kind
cans of pie fillings
I make my own hot cocoa mix and a chai latte mix that I give as gifts too so then I have to get:
chocolate milk mix
non dairy creamer
decaf instant tea mix
and plenty of tins, boxes, food wrap, jars and bags to package it all in for sharing with friends and family.

I ordered my pure vanilla online. I live in a rural area and buying a little thing of vanilla is just getting so expensive.
I also bought cinnamon sticks on line and my 'candied' ginger, which i don't really cook with candied ginger, but like to eat it now and then, it is good for you.
I like using the whole nutmeg and grating it. It is much better th an the already ground.
Also I read, where sugar was going up in price. So I have stocked up on that too.

Thanks for the list! I was just thinking about this this morning

I know it seems everything is going up in price. I have to start stalking up. That's one of the reasons I love Sam's Club and BJ's I can get a lot of my non-perishable baking stuff in bulk.
we get this stuff in 5, 10 or even 20 lb. bags this time of year I can even get butter in bulk there they have 5 packs of the 1 lb boxes of butter. I just throw 3 out of the 5 boxes in the freezer and as I get down to one box I take one out of the freezer so that by the time I get to it it's thawed enough to use.

Sounds like everyone is doing their homework. I need to do mine also.

I wish I had lots of space to start stocking up on my baking supplies but I don't! So when the season start's to get a little closer then I will buy my stuff and start the baking process.

I have a small home baking business, so I always go to Sam's Club to get supplies. That's the BEST place to get pure vanilla. It's way, way cheaper than getting it at the grocery store. Same for all of the other baking supplies. It's amazing how much you can save if you need alot.
