From Rae (Ravenous Rae), in Fayetteville, North Carolina:
I just moved into this lovely house with a lovely kitchen. The pantry is not the most accessible due to a door frame around it and a louvered door on it. I still use the pantry, but since it's hard to get to, I use the pantry for items I do not use on a daily basis.
The top shelf is for soups. The next shelf is for canned tomatoes, beans, salsas, and a few miscellaneous items in the corner that are very rare occurrences in cooking. The third shelf has canned veggies, and extras of things I use a lot and want to keep on hand so I never run out.
Since I don't use the pantry that much, I use the kitchen cabinets. Above the sink is a pass through window to the living room. I use the shelves for veggies that do not need to be in the fridge. On the right hand side shelves I store tea, and on the shelves to the left is salt, pepper, and hot sauce!
The large cabinet is the one I use the most. It has nuts, nut butters, cereals, oats, etc. It's mostly breakfast items (I love breakfast!) but a few other frequently used things in there too. I use a small cabinet for baking items, such as sucanat, cocoa powder, and specialty flours.
