please help me with my kitchen restock

I'm almost finished with a kitchen remodel and haven't bought anything since July. Hence, my cupboards are quite literally bare. Since the holidays are coming up, I want to get the best of everything that I can reasonably afford, especially for baking. Below are my shopping lists. I would greatly appreciate your input on the brands I've chosen, the places I've chosen to get specific items, anything I've left out, etc.

Hain baking powder or Bob's red mill
white lily ap flour
king arthur bread flour
domino sugar, powdered sugar, brown sugar
Barilla pasta
grandma's molasses
cabot's creamery butter
better than boullion
veg. oil

fleur de sel
ground ginger
pumpkin pie spice (perhaps redundant)
raspberry enlightenment
cocoa powder (maybe Trader Joe's instead)
garlic powder

trader joe's
rice, arborio, jasmine, basmati
white chocolate chips and regular chocolate chips
turbinado sugar
olive oil
parmesan cheese

Is all yeast created equal? I'm not much of a bread baker. Mainly will be used for pizza dough and waffles.
espresso powder from somewhere
I have trader joe's tahaitian vanilla and penzey's almond extract, but am not crazy about either, so recommendations would be helpful
plotting order from nutsonline - almonds, dried strawberries, mangoes, etc.
eggs are local
And I'm totally coveting the cookie baker's gift from Lake Champlain chocolates, but I can't justify $50.

Thank you in advance.
