Kitchen Cabinets: Take them up to the ceiling, or not?

If you were getting new cabinets, would it be worth the extra cost to take them all the way up to the ceiling? 8' ceilings, so wall cabinets will be either 30" tall or 42" tall (plus crown molding). Current ones are 30". Cost increases by 15% to take them to the ceiling. Note: I could definitely use the cupboard space (small kitchen!) but would need a small step-stool to reach the top level of the 42" cabinets. Tight budget, so to get the 42" cabinets, I will need to cut down some in other areas of the remodel. (I've never had "to the ceiling" your input would be appreciated....) Thanks!
