Spice Cupboard

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is your spice cupboard as messy and disorganized as mine was??

I had bought some Tupperware Spice Containers several years ago (two of the large sets of the large and 2 sets of the small), but they take up so much room, and I have way more spices than that. In addition to those Tupperware containers I also had bags and spice bottles. It was a mess. I have to unload almost the whole cupboard to find anything, and to dig out the Tupperware containers from the back. Plus many of the large Tupperware containers were less than 1/2 full, and some even less than 1/4 full so there was so much wasted space.

Today when I was shopping I bought 12 - 125ml canning jars with lids. I can't believe how little room they take up! I can stack 4 jars in my cupboard, so 12 jars only makes a row of 3 and I can still fit another stack of 4 next to it.

I need to get another 2 boxes of those jars because I have a ton of spices. I can't wait to get rid of all of those little plastic spice containers and bags!

Not sure what I'm going to do with the Tupperware ones. Maybe I can use them around my sewing machine for buttons and things.

ours is pretty organized. everything is turned the same way and clearly labeled so i can see it (i'm short so i'm always having to break out the little step stool so the more clean i keep it the easier it is to see and find things in there)

I don't have a whole lot of shelf space, so I keep my spices in magnetic tins sort of like these http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...sin=B000MM8WRY
and just set them on the side of my fridge, where they're not in the way of anything else. Works great!

Oh I like those magnetic ones! How much do they hold and how strong is the magnet?

Hmm...they definitely hold all of those smaller containers of spices...I think it might depend on the spice if they hold all of the larger containers. Mine aren't exactly like that, I get them from World Market for about 2 bucks a container. The magnet is decently strong (doesn't fall off the fridge but you don't have to tug forever to get it off) and they have little shaker holes and a "pour" hole in them too that you just rotate the cap to get to. I think they're great.
