Yeah, what up with that over-the-fridge cabinet? I'm tall but can't reach it without a chair either, and have no idea what's in there. Pretty sure it's not food items.
I stash rice and pasta in the cupboard over the microwave. Bags of beans, raisins go in a basket on top of the fridge. Canned goods go in the big lazy susan cupboard. Stuff I can is in the basement, along with overflow from yearly Costco trips. Years ago I built a "pantry" in the laundry room (just big shelves really) where I stash extras.
As long as you remember where stuff is, CW, you have a great idea.
