I posted this in another thread yesterday but will copy it here. This is what I tend to have in my pantry and keep around most of the time:

Vinegars (usually rice and cider vinegar and sometimes balsamic)
lemon juice and lime juice
soy sauce or tamari (for making dishes for my gluten free Mom)
vegan mayonnaise (Just Mayo or Vegannaise)
dijon mustard
organic catsup
flaxseeds/ground flaxmeal
unsweetened coconut flakes
vital wheat gluten
cornmeal or polenta
whole wheat flour, white spelt flour, whole wheat pastry flour
white rice flour and brown rice flour
sorghum flour
chickpea flour (awesome to have around to make chickpea flour omelets)
baking soda and baking powder
tapioca starch, cornstarch
pure cocoa powder
maple syrup
blackstrap molasses (great source of calcium and iron and goes well in hot cereal, homemade Asian sauce, smoothies, baking bread etc)
peanut butter (just peanuts)
sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds (shelled)
brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts, pecans
coconut oil and/or olive oil (cold press extra virgin)
nutritional yeast flakes (found in bulk section of natural food stores)
buckwheat groats, oat groats, millet, brown rice, jasmine rice, couscous, quinoa, bulgur wheat (great for making taco "meat", spaghetti sauce "meat", sloppy joe "meat" etc as the texture is similar to ground beef and it absorbs other ingredients well)
spaghetti, whole wheat penne pasta, buckwheat soba noodles (without egg), udon noodles
cans of tomato paste, tomato sauce, diced or stewed tomatoes
dried lentils (brown, red)
dried split peas (green, yellow)
cans of chickpeas, white beans, black beans, kidney beans (sometimes dry too)
cans of pineapple
cans or artichoke hearts
canned pumpkin (great in place of egg for some baking and for smoothies or pancakes etc)
turbinado sugar
agar flakes (if you like to make things that "gel", this works beautifully in place of gelatine)
spices like cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne, turmeric, paprika, garam masala, coriander, oregano, basil, dill seed or weed, thyme, black pepper, onion powder, marjorum, mustard powder
vegan commercial bread on occasion (Rudi brand or Ezekiel/Food For Life) or I make my own more often
Frozen mixed vegetables, bananas I freeze in chunks and keep in freezer bags, frozen berries in winter months, frozen peas and limas
tempeh, tofu (I almost always keep a package of tempeh on hand but tofu is something I buy less often)
plant milks (almond, soy usually but have tried oat, hemp etc and used to make my own flaxseed milk and almond milk)
sweet potatoes (great in soups, burritos, casseroles, mashed with pineapple or coconut etc)
potatoes (red or russet)
a variety of leafy greens always on hand (collards, kale, bok choy, spinach, turnip greens, romaine etc) (good for smoothies, salads, in sandwiches, wraps, soups etc)
bell peppers
zucchini, yellow squash
winter squash (butternut, acorn)
green beans
snap peas
asparagus or brussel sprouts
broccoli always on hand
seasonal fruits (berries, plums, peaches...)
cantaloupe or pineapple

Less than once per month but on rare occasion for a treat or something different:

Amy's frozen vegan burritos
Beyond Meat chik*n strips
Bocca burgers
Field Roast vegan sausages
Tofutti cream cheese/sour creams
Daiya vegan cheese shreds
Rudis or Ezekiel commercial bread and english muffins
vegan friendly tortillas or bagels
Annie's salad dressings (mostly the light Goddess dressing)
Just Mayo or Vegannaise
corn taco shells or organic tortilla chips
Amy's baked beans
cold vegan friendly cereals (Nature's Path, Kashi, Barbara's are all cereal companies that have vegan options listed on their websites)

I don't buy all this stuff every week. Much of it is already on hand and I just replace what I need or buy for recipes/meals I plan for the week etc. Dried beans last a long time, as do some whole grains. Fruits and vegetables I buy weekly, mostly peppers, cucumbers, leafy greens, broccoli, bananas, berries or whatever fruit is in season, cabbages, tomatoes...I buy a carton of plant milk weekly as well. And at least one can of beans.

In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel
