What Pantry Item Are You Never Out Of?

A mention by a member that she was out of white rice caught me -- how can you be out of rice, for goodness sake?!

Is there anything (beyond milk for the kids, and such-like) that you simply can not be out of? That you would brave a blizzard to replenish? Potable, comestible, staple, condiment -- whatever. (Newbies are especially welcome to answer.)

Salt.

I was actually doing a cooking thing one time with my sister and nephew over and discovered that I was out of... salt. Nephew actually had to go to the store. WTF??? You don't ever run out of salt.

Canned tomatoes

Either onions or garlic (I'm OK without one, as long as I have some of the other)

Stock or canned broth

If Squeat can list Scotch, I can list coffee and red wine, I suppose.

At this very moment, I am out of rice, having used the last on Thursday's jambalaya. Well, long-grain, anyway. I've got two or three pounds of medium-grain, and about one-and-a-half of arborio.
