Kitchen storage containers can take care of this problem. They come in various sizes and shapes. Square containers that have button lids are a good choice. These come in many sizes, stack neatly and create an air-tight seal with the push of a button. Fill a tall skinny one with spaghetti, a small rectangular with rice and a large rectangular one with cereal. There are ones made specially to hold a 5-pound bag of sugar as well as a single sandwich.
Anyone who ever said "a place for everything and everything in its place" clearly didn't have the same kitchens that we have to deal with. It requires the outside influence of some appropriate storage bins and kitchen storage to make your kitchen work for you.
Looking at those cluttered countertops and that jumbled pantry it's hard to imagine any reasonable way of gaining back that control you once maintained and somehow surrendered slowly over time to the likes of a canister here, that sandwich maker there, the one that you just "had to have". We could go on and on, but the issue here is not the cause of the dilemma. Your focus needs to be on the remedy.
