Looking at those cluttered countertops and that jumbled pantry it is hard to imagine any reasonable way of gaining back that control you once maintained and somehow surrendered slowly over time to the likes of a canister here, that sandwich maker there, the one that you just "had to have". We could go on and on, but the issue here is not the cause of the dilemma. Your focus needs to be on the remedy.
These are storage spaces that are built deep inside and there is always a difficulty in accessing the required items from them. In order to circumvent this difficulty, the lower cabinets should have sliding drawers, cabinets which are at eye level can have layered stacking shelves and the top cabinets can have pull-down racks. All items should be kept in appropriate kitchen storage bins. It is better to keep the most frequently required items at front rows.
Next is ensuring accessibility of all items. Grouping similar items in small kitchen storage bins and then labeling them is a good idea. Kitchen storage bins that are transparent will be helpful to store pantry staples like flour, sugar, rice etc.
Packaged foods come in different shapes and sizes and, no matter how neatly you place them on a shelf, they eventually topple over. On top of that, once they are opened, you can never close them as securely as you wish to.
For a larger kitchen, you have more options. The same organization solutions used in a small kitchen can be used, but you also get the chance to upgrade to bigger storage. A movable butcher-block island offers a convenient workstation as well as mass amounts of kitchen storage underneath it.
Drawers are another area that gets easily messed up. Using modular or expandable organizers will go towards optimum utilization of space. Items can be separated based on the occasion of their use and also by size, shape and frequency of use.
