I am looking for a cheaper alternative for this door rack. Any suggestions?

Google "pantry door rack" - Lots of options.
I think it's easier to find a cheaper rack if it's going on a flat door vs. having recessed panels, and if it can be hung over the top of the door.

I use an over the door shoe organizer from Amazon in my pantry for spices. I think I paid $10 for it and it works well.

This can work well with a solid wood three hinge door.

If you are in a rental with cheap hollow core doors with two hinges, there is a good chance the door will break or fall off the wall.

In any case be sure your top hinge screws are secure, and consider replacing the screws with a larger size.

You can find cheap options, but most are over the door types. If the top of your door doesn't have a lot of clearance on top, the over the door models could scrape. Most aren't adjustable like the Elfa. I had one like this at my last house: https://www.homedepot.com/p/ClosetMaid- ... /100198623 . $35 bucks- no adjustable shelves though. It really held a lot of stuff.
