If you have kids, I could see maybe having containers like that. Generally snack food doesn't last long enough to go bad, but my oldest leaves everything open. Though he'd probably leave these containers open too.

My girl likes everything organized I spent a small fortune on containers for everything in the pantry and fridge. Does it look nice yes I think it’s more a female thing. Idaf

Or it’s a stay rich hack, buy the generic shit and put it in a container so nobody knows you’re pinching pennies.
That's what I do but IDGAF if anyone knows. I buy the huge bags of generic cereal and pour it into those containers. A pillow sized bag of Marshmallow Matey's gets fucking aggravating in a cabinet. Just dose it out 1/3 of the bag at a time into those. Keeps it fresh longer too.

Open my fridge or pantry and you'll see nothing but Aldi or off-brand. Hellman's mayo and Heinz Ketchup are the only name-brand things I buy.

I'm honestly not sure what the span will be between columns in the basement. I know in the garage it was over 26' so we ended up adding LVL's to avoid columns

Insulation info below

Insulation:
-Foundation insulation R-10 foam boards below grade around foundation perimeter
-Garage Walls R- 13 Batts
-Exterior House wall R- 19 Batts
-Ceilings Blown R-49 blown fiber House Attic

I can’t ever do generic Aldi cereal and chips they taste different I don’t care what anybody says. That’s all my mom bought us growing up and I refuse to feed my kids that and myself. Another thing I can’t drink is generic pop.

You posted 9 pages worth of other boomer shit, don’t cherry pick.

Instead clean this shit up so I can see what a true baller looks like without interruption.

I don't do Aldi cereal. The cereal is name brand-ish just sold in big ass bags. I'll do some of the Aldi chips. Only name-brand chips I get are the Lay's baked BBQ and Ruffle's All Dressed. Aldi kettle chips taste the same as any of the expensive ones to me.

All I really have for input is put a cabinet between your fridge and oven. Your oven is going to be open while the refrigerator is opened and something will get a nice dent in the door.

I think everything else is personal preference, and maybe you don't care if something gets dented because it will likely be replaced in 5 years anyways given how crappy appliances are built these days.
