No dedicated pantry or nook where you can create one? Try this ingenious solution: Fit a cabinet with swing-out shelves sized to accommodate spices, staples, and other dry goods. Not only do these workhorses take advantage of vertical space, they also alleviate the problem of things getting shoved to the back and forgotten.

Although you can have custom shelves crafted for an odd-size cabinet or specific needs, you'll find a wide variety of premade swing-out kits on the market, designed to suit a spectrum of cabinet configurations.
