I like upper shelves in my kitchen. The issue is how to easily and efficiently reach the upper shelves. Is there a light, safe, not bulky, easy to store, ladder? Otherwise, I'm just storing things that I completely forget I have even when they would come in handy.

I am small and can't reach the backs of top cupboard shelves, so people please add links for good sage space-saver steps

But rarely used stuff on open shelves will be dirty and greasy by the time you need to use it. Yuck.

Turn them at least upside down so the inside remains relatively clean.
