Pantry design

Hi I need help designing the inside of my pantry. It is 5ftx2ft and I'm only using it for food and paper goods, no appliances. How should I design the depths of the shelves and the spacing between them? Thanks!

Upper shelves should be farther apart to accompany boxes of cereal or Ritz crackers, etc.

Lower shelves should be closer together to put canned goods and jars of pickles, etc.

Bottom shelve should be 2 feet off of the floor.

Kt...this is only my opinion.

Funny, I do just the opposite but I'll bet we're still doing the same thing. Canned goods closer to eye level and easy reach. Lower shelves farther apart for cereal and rice with seldom used things behind, like bags of sugar. Very lowest large bottles of vinegar, oil, dish detergent and a couple seldom used appliances.

Two other forums like to tackle things like this, too. The Kitchen Forum and Organizing Forum--especially this time of year.
