From Veee, in Austin, Texas:
My pantry is long and narrow so it isn't easy to take pictures but I hope you can get the idea. I have 5 shelves plus the floor along one wall. And one shelf above a clothes rod on the end.
Below that are fruit, vegetables, beans. Dried fruit in the bin, crackers, plastic and paper bags, foil, etc.
Powdered milk, all kinds of pasta and dry beans in the containers. Floor has oatmeal, cereal, sugarless syrups, canned tomatoes, oil, vegetables and fruit. Step stool.
Moving to the right, ceiling shelf has spices on turntables, tea, below that are soups, sugars, drink mixes. Below that are gum and candy (yes, we have a ton of candy), energy bars, dehydrated vegetables, oils. Peeking below is the shelf with the pasta and bean containers usually stacked 3 high. Are you asking "Do you really need every type of bean and every shape of pasta?" Yes, I do!
At the end is our coat closet and spa towel hooks. Stock pot, canning supplies, jumble of stuff.
It does look like a lot and it is because I try to have 6-12 months of staples. I have long term wheat, sugar, etc. in another storage spot. It may look pretty disorganized but I do rotate everything and try to keep like items together.
