When I stopped eating soy-related foods, I noticed I had tons of pantry room available!
I have a large selection of EVOOs & Balsamic Vinegars (flavored and regular), a shelf with jarred olives and tins of tomato paste and tomatoes, and a couple boxes of Quinoa pasta.
Baking: organic stuff, flours made of sorghum, quinoa, almond and some wheat. Molasses, vanilla & almond essences, cocoa powder, and lots of coconut oil.
Large amounts of nuts, particularly raw almonds and raw pecans.
Local raw honeys, homemade jelly, tabasco (of course), and lots of different coffees.
And a jar of Guittard chocolate chips that rarely make it into any baked goods because I'd rather just help myself to them when I want sweets ;)

That's pretty much it.

I have four cabinets and part of an open shelf that I use for pantry goods. I'd almost rather post pictures than try to list everything

For starters, I have at least 9 vinegars and 5 oils, lots of herbs and spices, 4 shapes of Italian pasta, 3 types of rice noodles, 3 kinds of rice, gnocchi, Asian seasonings and condiments, Mexican chocolate, corn husks for tamales, a few canned cream soups, baking supplies (flours, sugars, extracts, etc.), canned tomato products, and pasta sauces. Also, kitchen equipment like a salad spinner, scale, food processor, mandolin, immersion blender, colanders, strainers, etc. There's much more but I'm not home right now so I can't look.

Your list is plenty long enough! Doubt anyone posted every single item. I also keep some of the items that usually go in a pantry in my fridge and I freeze things like nuts etc etc

I forgot the corn husks, I have those as well and I see I have yet another bin of different kinds of dried beans...maybe I should do a bean night this weekend (soak beans overnight and cook, put in freezer)...

I'll sart with all the crap dh bought when I couldn't get out to shop and do I hate canned veggies, I can go frozen and adore fresh. so here we go with what i've gotten, San Marzano tomatoes, tubes of tomatoe and anchoveys , herbs,thyme,mexican oregano,marjoram name it I have it. Canned corn as well as frozen, fresh comes later,fresh green beans,eggplant,brussels Sprouts,leeks,mushrooms,dry beans dry and fresh pastas, homemade gravy for the pastas,in cluding pesto and red gravy. my pantry looks just like what i own and both are a mess. I have two freezers and both have meats and ice cream I also have all types of flour and boxed cake mixes from King Arthurs goodies. I'll get back later need to a few other things now.

I keep my corn husks in the freezer, they are soaked and ready to use, I just have to let them thaw.

I don't have any separate pantry, I just stuffed everything in a small kitchen. (detergents and other laundry products I keep in a small cupboard in my veranda)

I wish someday I will also have a pantry and I will arrange everything systematically.

That's a good idea! I keep mine in a glass jar, but there's no reason why I couldn't soak them and pop them in the freezer...except they might get lost...
