Organize Your Spices With Magnetic Spice Jars
As part of my new care-giver role for my Mom, I am doing more cooking than I've ever done! I am constantly looking for recipes for foods that she will eat. Consequently I am discovering a variety of spices to add to the good old stand-bys. I now had 2 overflowing baskets of spices in my cupboard as well as jars of spices always sitting on my counter. I needed a way to organize them so that I was not constantly pulling out the baskets and looking for spices and that also cleared up some of the clutter from my kitchen counter. I love the little magnetic baskets I have on the side of my fridge and I decided to find a way to hang my spices on the side of my microwave where they would be close by when I'm cooking. Here is the result: I used a new product from Ball (the canning jar company) which is a great little 4 oz. herb jar with a shaker top and some neodymium magnets (super strong, so be careful when you use them!) to solve my problem. What do you think? For more information, please see my post (includes a video) on HubPages: http://ivylore.hubpages.com/hub/stick-em-up-how-to-make-a-magnetic-spice-rack
Fun video I made describing the project. Enjoy!

Jacquelyn Bauer on Mar 02, 2015My father used baby food jars for small items in his garage. You could use them for this. You would just have to put holes in the lids. Or try putting screening under the lid for shaking. Just a thought.done
