What 6 spices or herbs or combination should I get?

I started buying spices from penzeys and I'm going over tomorrow to buy 6 or maybe 7 spices or herbs or a combination should I get?

I already have vanilla beans, coriander, smoked paprika.

I know for sure I will be getting sweet paprika and saffran.

I would get :
thyme
bay leaves
rosemary
sage and /or poultry seasoning
Montreal steak seasoning
Old Bay Seasoning
Cinnamon
allspice
cloves
ginger

I know that this is more than you asked for. The last four are primarily for baking but are also used in some savory dishes. The Montreal and the Old Bay you may need to get in the grocery store and they have more limited uses than the other seasonings. Hope this helps.

penzeys? I suggest real New Zealand wasabi powder sold there, not that fake green horseradish stuff at supermarkets and most sushi restaurants.

To me, it all depends on what you plan on cooking during the spices' lifetime.
