Pantry Must Haves

I have developed a new hobby for cooking my fiance' and myself yummy dinners/ready to go lunches. I feel like I am constantly at the grocery, getting one or two ingredients. I am starting to really develop my spice cabinet, and have some key ingredients for several dishes. I want MORE! :) I want to know what you ALWAYS have in your fridge/cupboard/cabinet/counter, etc that you use most often that will help with creating a meal without constantly going by the market (of course, getting fresh ingredients will always be cause for a trip to market).

I feel like many cooks have the staple pantry items - what's on your pantry must-have list?
