what basic maintenance items do I need?

I am ordering a Greenie jaw to repair my busted rear window regulator from Partsway Canada.
Great that they even have it but they charge $12 to ship a featherweight $10 part.
alternatively their minimum order for free shipping is $75.

Not being a wildly enthusiastic auto-maintenance guy, I am wondering, what basic items can I add to this order that I will undoubtedly need in the next 2 years and that I can easily install myself?
Bulbs? (mine seem to always be blowing)
Wiper blades (how often should I have replaced these? I never have in 6 years.)

what other basics am I overlooking ?
what bits should I be replacing regularly that I probably haven't?

(I do not and should not do my own oil changes.)

Wiper blade, cabin filters, charcoal filters. Those items there will put you well over the top.
