You buy the kind of things you will use. Sit down and start making a list of things you know you will use, the things you like to eat. Make a list of the meals you're likely to prepare in an average couple of weeks and then see what ingredients those things use. You buy stuff in quantities you'll use up before it spoils, and not so much that you end up with bags of flour stored in your bedroom closet. If you're not sure, buy smaller sizes until you are sure.

Happy to help.

There are SO many different types of flours on the market. The 2 most commonly used are all-purpose and self-rising,so I would make sure that I at least have those on hand, along with baking powder&soda. Garlic is a necessity along with white and apple cider vinegar.

Clover honey,molasses,brown sugar and granual sugar,dried beans,lentiles,rice,pastas,pasta sauces,canned veggies,vegetable stock/broth,diced tomatos,stewed tomatoes,tomato juice,tomato paste,tomato puree,oatmeal,wheatgerm,farina,yeast, biscuit mix,bread crumbs,cocoa powder,nuts(walnuts,almonds and pecans are common) peanut butter,marshmallows or fluff, pie filling, raisins(any dried fruit will do) condiments,salad dressings,black olives,spanish olives,vanilla wafers,graham crackers,saltine crackers and cheese crackers (like cheez it,good for recipes).

Which of these things on this list do you actually use? Cream of tartar? Unless you're whipping eggwhites to stiff peaks on a semi-fregquent basis, you don't need it. Just think of what you cook for yourself and what you would actually use. That's how you build your pantry.
Even flour has an expiration date. Just get a flour you will use most frequently and just use that.
