Spice it up!

            Do spice bottles come tumbling out when you open a cabinet door? Do you even know what is in the back of that cabinet? How old is that spice? Spices are one of the most difficult items to store in an organized fashion in your kitchen. Each brand has their own size bottle and some spices you just don’t use that often. What is a person to do?


            There are several solutions for storing spices in a more organized and easily accessible fashion. If you are considering new cabinets, there are dedicated pull out spice racks that can be incorporated in the base or wall cabinets, most commonly near the range. If you are working with existing cabinets, you can mount narrow racks on the inside of your wall cabinet doors. This may require cutting off some depth of the shelves inside that cabinet. Another solution would be to use a 10” round, plastic, lazy susan turntable, found at Target or Wal-Mart. This low profile contraption is great to put on a wall cabinet shelf and place your spices on it. Simply spin the turntable to find the spice you are looking for. If you want to get really organized, place them in alphabetical order on the turntable.


            Don’t despair! There are several ways to make your life a little more organized and your spices a little easier to find. If you have a unique storage solution for your spices, I would love to hear about it. Shoot me an email or call me. Best of luck on your path to better organization.
