    I bought a spice rack that you screw onto the inside of your pantry door. For anything in sachets that might fall through the rack, I put these into a Tupperware container. I organise mine alphabetically and can see at a glance what I have when I open the pantry door. The rack was about $2 in Target!

    I'm thinking that you want to keep your spices on the lazy susan, right? Like @Carole, my first suggestion is to get things in alphabetical order; generally those lazy susan trays are pretty wide - why not do an inner circle of the taller containers (alphabetical) and then arrange the smaller ones around the outer circle (alphabetical)? Hope that helps.

      @Shell Well shell I did what you said the very big ones are on the second shelf. The top shelf does look better. And Im hoping the family keeps things in order. I wish I could see the names easier though.

    I am a everyday cook and have a rotating spice tower and keep the refill bottles in a box in a cabinet . This way I save counter space and have everything handy. I refill the tower once a month. The box I keep in the cabinet I label the tops of the bottles and boxes . I also fill the box by size larger containers in the back smallest in front.

    I too use a lazy susan only mine is a double stacked one, & had the same problem. We finally put it out on a shelf in the kitchen where it was more accessible. I keep my spices more in the order I use the most. All I use for sauce making are in the middle since I only make sauce once every 6 weeks or so. The rest I keep the labels facing the outside so I can see what is what, & grab as I need them. It's very hard to do when in a cupboard . Did that for years, & was a real pain. Much easier on a shelf in the open. After awhile I have about memorized where each is..Good luck!

    I have mine in a ladder-type organizer in the first shelf of a cabinet next to the stove, where the most used are on the first rung and so on. You could device something like this in your lazy Susan. Something like this I also like the idea of alphabetically arranging the bottles.
