Before you start deciding how to reorganize and design your new kitchen pantry, you should clean it out. If you have expired or barely used items, consider throwing them out or donating them to a soup kitchen. Then you can start organizing what you have left into groups, whether it's by frequency of use or spice groups. Then when you go to return them to the pantry, they'll be organized for easy access.
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.
If you have a nearby island to act as prep space, losing a little counter may be well worth the trade-off.
Like our Colonial predecessors, modern households maintain stockpiles of provisions, merging the store-bought with the homegrown and homemade. When kitchens and dining rooms can no longer cope, the pantry emerges as an accommodating storage collaborator.
In place of a counter, Vitzthum often places a shallower upper cabinet on top of a slightly deeper, 30-inch base cabinet. “You don’t want to waste prime storage space, which typically ranges from two feet off the ground up to six feet, with unnecessary counter space,” she cautions.
