Between now and the end of the year I’ll be offering suggestions for ways to bring order to areas of your home where clutter may persist in returning.
How many pots do you use on a regular basis? Over time, you may have bought replacements pots only to decide to hold onto the old one "just in case." Or, you have have bought specialty pans that never or rarely get used.
Simplify the fry pans, saucepans, and stock pots that you use all the time so you don't have to store some pans behind others or nest pots inside of others. Consider if you use specialty cookware often enough to keep these pieces (and if you make a special dish once a year, that can be enough), then consider moving this pot or pan to a less convenient spot, away from your everyday cookware.
The advantage here is that you an keep the covers with their pots and save yourself rummaging through a crammed cabinet.
