Door sensor to turn on the pantry light?

Door sensor to turn on the pantry light?

We recently renovated and we have a few new doors in the pantry, and our pantry has one unbreakable light that has a smart light bulb in it. I wonder if there is a way to control this light bulb, so when the pantry door opens, it turns on this light, and when the door closes it goes out again. Because it’s super simple, I’m looking for the cheapest option (eg a mechanical sensor or something else), since it’s not security, not a motion sensor, etc. Any recommendations?
