I love to bake. I love trying new recipes. I’m not so thrilled about cleaning, but I do love to be in the kitchen providing fun new things for my family to eat.
BUT I really struggle with the disorder that comes with many spices in my cabinet. I am a very short person (under 5 foot tall) and can only reach the front of my upper cabinets. So when I have many different spices tossed into a cabinet I often end up buying duplicates simply because I cannot find the ones I already have.
I’ve looked into various ways of organizing:
- in drawer storage
- attached to cabinet doors
- spinning/rotating countertop do-hickies
None of these would work for me because of my very limited cabinet/drawer/countertop space or because of my height (or lack thereof). But FINALLY I found something that works for me!!
We don’t have cable and I have never seen a home shopping channel, but in my internet search, I found something on QVC that I really love. (updated to add that something similar can be found on Amazon)
Now, this spice organizer does take up most of the cabinet so it can no longer hold my larger items I use every day. Since it was never easy for me to reach them anyway, I took the tiered rack I had previously purchased (in the hopes that it would help) and put that on my counter next to my stove.
Now it is MUCH easier for me to keep organized and reach all of my spices and items for cooking or baking. I’m a very happy camper. Now, if only things would STAY this well ordered!
