Can I store acids and bases in the same chemical storage cabinet?

Ideally, it would be nice to have separate chemical storage cabinets for acids and bases. However, due to the cost of having two cabinets and limited storage space, acids and bases can be stored together. Should the two families mix, you will get neutralization with some heat being generated.
