Keeping stuff in cabinets

My wife just opened a cabinet door and a bottle of soy sauce hit the floor and broke. There is likely threads on this but I didn't know what to search on. We put most things like this in baskets, but are there other great solutions to prevent items from falling out of cabinets. Thanks in advance.

We use a variety of techniques, depending on cabinet size and the contents. Retainer bars, baskets, even pieces of cardboard cut to wedge in as a retainer. Perhpas the most important, though, is to train ourselves to be circumspect opening cabinets after a travel day, and especially so if there has been a lurch or big bump (an RR track, for example). If you think there might be stuff shaken loose, go around and open each cabinet carefully, expecting things to be awry and ready to catch them.

The best way is to keep every single shelf really nice and tight so that nothing moves or falls by it self; we use anti derapant material in the pantry shelves; the same goes for the fridge, keep every tablet nice and tight.

I give, what is "anti derapant material" ?

Similar to Gary, I use baskets and spring curtain rods to hold most things in place in the cabinets. When I stack canned goods, I use masking tape and tape one can on top of another and only have to use one rod for the whole shelf.

We have the same stuff lining the shelves. Then a basket in each cabinet. No glass in upper cabinets or heavy stuff. Solo cups and bachelor (paper) plates. mustard, mayo, etc. are in plastic bottles

For the one cabinet that we have bottled items in, we have a 'rubber maid' container that fits the cabinet an tall enough to keep the items in place. But the best answer has already been posted, pay attention when you are opening a cabinet after traveling.
