Best Spice Rack Evah!

Dino inspired me by posting about his spice drawer. I thought I was so unique and clever for putting all my spices in a drawer instead of a rack*. His post inspired me to actually finish what I started and get some good containers so I could really see my spices. I bought spice containers from here for 68 cents each. The are square tins with clear lids. We already owned a labeler so the labeling was free. The results are amazing. We can now look in the drawer and immediately find what we need. When I originally put the spices in the drawer I thought I just needed to label the tops. But, being able to see the spices themselves makes is 100x easier to find what you are looking for. Here is the what the drawer looks like now:


So, like Dino, I am encouraging you to go forth and be creative with your spice organization. And I'd love to see how you have your spices organized!

* I hate spice racks. The jars are always too small or they come with stale spices you have to throw out. They take up counter space. The get dusty and sticky. They kind of suck all around.


  1. That's a really cool idea. I think I saw it on somebody else's blog too (can't remember where though). I have mine in a cabinet and they are so crowded and disorganized.
