Situation: An oven that had turned into a cabinet. A pantry that held almost everything but food and food storage supplies.
Challenge: This was a very dangerous choice. When space seems to be at a premium, folks will often default into using areas for storage that are really meant for other things. The real pantry was used to store games, wrapping paper, office supplies, almost everything but paper goods.
Solution: Get rid of excess grocery inventory, clear the pantry and make room for what supplies and food needed to be kept on hand.
