    Love this idea! In printing them out in landscape - How did you get them that size? I enlarged them over 100 % and they came out so tiny that I can't even read them. Thanks, gracie

    I love you for this idea! I buy most of my spices in 4 oz-1 lb sizes, packed in zip top bags. They are stuffed into a big drawer and I have to dig through them all. NO MORE!! Tomorrow starts a brand new spice era in my kitchen. I'll need a banker style storage box however. I like spices.

    Love this idea! I sometimes only want a T or so of a spice that I use rarely so using a spice jar for such a small amount takes up a lot of room. This idea is will allow me to store many more spices in an organized way in a small amount of space. Thanks for this novel approach
