I finally got around to fixing my problem with inadequate pantry space. I'm sort of kicking myself for not doing it sooner! I love the new pantry we purchased, it has made life in the kitchen so much easier! We bought a closet maid pantry from Target on sale for $58, a very affordable option for those lacking the necessary storage for a growing family! We can now reach our plates with performing gymnastics while the dishwasher is open, and I can more effectively menu plan and write grocery lists now that I can clearly see what we have. It's a great solution! Here are some photos of the main area (we keep our cups and baking supplies in separate cabinets).
