A pantry is a fundamental component of every kitchen, providing that much needed space for canned goods, dry foods, spices and other cooking essentials.  Knowing how to organize a pantry, whether large or small, can really improve the functionality of the space and make it easier for you to find what you need, when you need it.  Here are some ingenious ways to help make the most out of your pantry.
