Simple Spice Storage

I'm currently in the middle of redoing my smaller kitchen that I want to function like a well-planned galley. I'm also trying to spend as little as possible to do it! Here's what I whipped up to create a functional and stylish little storage system for salt, kosher salt, powdered sugar, etc. (Everything above the counters will be white and fresh in my space, but you could use it for "colorful" spices too....heck, even beads in your craft room.) You'll just need spice jars, floral wire and nails!

    I also had a problem with storage for my spices and used this opening to build shelves and finally had a place for my spices.

    I'd want the name of the spice on the front with an expiration date.

    all these ideas are good, but spices should never be exposed to light and heat.cool and dark is best.

    you can glue magnets to the lids if you dont want to use wire

    Clever and attractive, but a terrible mistake. Spices should be stored in the dark, as far from the stove as possible in the kitchen, because light and heat destroy them. Mine are in a drawer on the other side of the room. My spices last for years --

    mamite jars would be great for this as they are dark and a perfect size for spices and dried herbs could ut screw through lids or glue magnets on lids
  • where did you get the jars? i have a lot of spices and herbs Char Belange YELM, WA
