You should also organize your pantry with older items in front and newer items in the back. That way you won't have to worry about opening a new package and then have the added issue of spices expiring or drying out.
Storage pantries are descended from the buttery (commonly known as butt’ry), named after the large barrels or “butts” of ale, wine, and liquors stored there. These rooms were housed in cool northern corners of Colonial homes. The butler’s pantry emerged in grand estates during the nineteenth century, particularly its latter half. Sited between the kitchen and dining room as a buffer between dinner guests and staff, it allowed servers to plate meals and also stored china and silver. This upper-class feature eventually spread to middle-class homes.
Baskets are useful for storing some items, but for frequently accessed goods and tools, investing in a few proper drawers will give better functionality.
Architects, builders and designers are all paying more attention to storage spaces: We want our kitchen pantries to be larger, more functional and more attractive.
One downside of this solution that should be noted is the loss of some counter space, compared to using standard upper and lower cabinets with a stretch of counter between.
During the twentieth century, the lack of storage in kitchens grew increasingly problematic, and pantry cabinets began to migrate beyond their confines. The Hoosier cabinet, a multipurpose furniture piece complete with cabinets and counters space, was popular from the turn of the century to the 1920s. In the 1950s, as refrigeration improved, prepared foods became more common, and kitchens gained additional cabinets and fixtures, America experienced a general recession in pantry construction.
