Hi, Craftsmaster. Welcome to Cheftalk.
You can keep those going without buying new ones all the time just by taking clippings, and starting them in potting soil. No more work than buying the plants already growing. The exception, of those you listed, is chives. But all you have to do is divide them at the root end.
I've even started new plants from those clam-shell packed herbs, which gives you an idea how tenacious of life they are.
