7. Dry goods and the food pantry. To answer my sister's question: Yes, if you have a pantry, put all your food there! Don't spread it out in wall cabinets just because you have empty cabinets! Walking around opening doors looking for things you can't find is one of the most annoying and frustrating things, and often keeps people from enjoying cooking. Less-used spices and sauces can go into the pantry, but put the items you use more often close to the stove. If you're a baker, and you have the space, carve out a spot just for baking items like sugar, flour, etc. I have a client who truly has a sprinkle drawer!
