pantry organization help?!
so our kitchen is 95% done. I started putting things back in the cabinets/drawers. Our pantry is 16 inches deep and about 30 inches wide (I don't remember exactly). It goes about 3/4 wall up the wall, then there is a 2nd more normal size cabinet above it. I'm feeling VERY frustrated trying to organize my food. 16 inches is very deep! Any tips or tricks to not have it be a big black hole? I put kids lunch stuff (lunchboxes, water bottles, tupperware containers used for packing snacks, etc) all on the bottom (read that yesterday from another poster and really liked that idea - thanks if it was yours!) but all other shelves feel like a big mess. I do plan to hit Target for some storage containers/dividers and things but is there anything specific I can get that will help?
I don't want to feel frustrated every time I open the doors. Our old pantry had the tiny can size shelves inside the doors - I hated those but at least it made the regular shelves not quite so deep, which I now realize was much easier to organize.
I'll take any tips you have! Please help me not be annoyed at my brand new kitchen lol
