I keep thinking I should move my spices from the single-door cupboard on the left of the stove to the double-door one on the right. That way I won't need to use the top shelf for spices, etc. But then that means moving all my mixing bowls and measuring things. Much as I'd like a really nice, re-organized kitchen, I keep putting it off in hopes that the next time I do that it's back home in OH.
BTW, the attached garage is right off the kitchen, and the folding step-stool is right outside the door. I could move it into the pantry if I re-arranged the cutting boards and table leaves and....*sigh*
Try putting those things in a basket for the top shelf CG. I can reach the basket, and bring it down to the counter. I keep those envelopes of sauces, etc. up there along with bags of spices to refill my spice shakers.
Like you, I'd never be able to reach anything but the edge of the shelf, but I can get a hold on the big plastic basket and bring it down.
