DIY $1 Spice Racks


Spices. I had duplicates I didn't know about. Some of my spices looked the same and I'd use the wrong one in a recipe (NOT fun!) This had to change! I wanted something cheap, something I didn't have to clean and easy to install.
I needed to clean out, purge and organize my spices. This was a mess to deal with!
I knew Dollar Tree would have something I could use! I picked up these cooling racks!
Then I bent them a little here and a little there... and voilá!
It was super easy to install on my pantry door!
Now look at my pantry shelf!! If you want to see exactly how I completed this project, check out the entire post.

    My wall space is limited. Could these be attached to the side of my fridge using heavy magnets?

      They make storage shelves with magnets. I use them on the side of the refrigerator.

    What did she use to hold racks up and hold ends to prevent spices from falling? Looks like she probably ducked taped the ends two sided so spices won't stick, and used small screws to hold racks up. Spices aren't that heavy so small screws would be fine.

      Love this idea! Totally going to do this! I could sure use the cabinet that I have the spices in for other stuff! Thank you so much for posting this.

    How are the racks put in place?

      They are attached with a small screw that the wire rack hangs on, then I screwed tight the screw. It held up very well!
