I also keep some dried eggs and dried milk. We don't use those normally, but, they would be handy to have, so, I rotate it through, using them for baking.
through. Same with soy protein - we're not huge fans, but, it's handy, and I just add it to meats and soups.
Extras I stockpile (IOW, I buy when they are on sale and/or I have a coupon and/or clearance):
Mouthwash (a personal preference to have it around)
Cooking juice (lemon/lime/and apple)
Sweetened condensed milk (for baking/cooking)
Mac and cheese (for quick meals - cheaper than takeout, right?)
Hot cocoa (DH
Chocolate syrup (DH
I do stock up on meats when they're on sale, but we only have an over the fridge freezer, and it's filled with veggies from the summer, and (right now) our stores "almost organic" brand of whole chickens, chicken drums, chicken breasts, ground beef, and stew meat...all on sale.
I also have a pretty darn comprehensive First Aid kid packed into a large backpack. And I keep some cash on hand.
I'm sure there's more, but that's what came to mind.
