After seeing velochic's pantry (thanks for sharing!), I just wanted to make sure everyone is aware of the need to take precautions against animal pests. Rats and mice are a very real problem, and they can chew through any lightweight packaging. We discovered this the hard way at our old house, when they decided to have a party in our pantry. They were especially fond of the powdered goat's milk in foil pouches, and the TJ's raisins in plastic bags. Even the things they couldn't get into were contaminated with rodent feces and urine, which let me tell you was NOT fun at all.
Once the critters had taken up residence, it took ages to get the last of them out of the house. We didn't use poison, but once you seal up their holes, they start to die and rot in the walls. We had to get a contractor to come and rip out part of the bathroom ceiling, and take out a decomposing rat family. I was pregnant and had a toddler at the time.
I'm sorry to have to talk about such a disgusting subject, but it's one that we should all be aware of.
Far better to keep them out in the first place. Because of this, our "deep storage" area only has food in metal cans, glass jars, plastic water and juice bottles, and heavy sealed plastic pails. Any other packaged food -- boxed, bagged, etc. -- is kept in plastic bins with secure lids. These bins are either stored outside in a detached shed, or (for more valuable or frequently-used items) in the main kitchen pantry, where I can keep an eye on them.
I'm not even going to get started on discussing Indian grain moths (aka pantry moths)... but will just say that if you ever buy or store bulk grains -- including large bags of rice from Asian groceries -- you should absolutely do a search for information on these critters, and take the recommended precautions. They're not health hazards in the same way that rats are, but they're very unpleasant, and really, really hard to get rid of.
