For something a little different, consider a 3-tiered basket to hold things like fruit; apples oranges and tangerines would fit well in the different sizes and add a splash of color to the kitchen. Consider holding potatoes, onions and garlic in another. Hang one near the mugs to hold tea bags, hot chocolate packs and bags of coffee.
By doing something as simple as installing dish rail to the forward edge of the upper cabinet tops, you provide a defined, aesthetically pleasing storage area for the likes of that fancy dinnerware you have used once in the last year, the larger pieces of cookware that also have not seen action since the last holiday. Storing larger, seldom used pieces overhead clears more concealed storage space for some of the items that clutter your counter space. Remember that sandwich maker; there you go, out of sight.
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.
