Last October I wrote about my dilemma with storing spices in the kitchen. The spices were crammed into a little cabinet and I couldn't find what I needed without removing half the spices from the cabinet. Also, I have been known to purchase a spice I needed for a recipe when I actually had it, I just couldn't find it the mess. Y'all had some great suggestions. Thanks!
I finally found a solution that worked in my kitchen, the elfa storage system, from The Container Store. I wish I could say that it was a great deal but it wasn't. I definitely paid more than I planned to pay. However, it works perfect!
After- In Alphabetical Order
I like the elfa storage system because the pieces are sold separately; so you can custom design what works best for your storage needs. First I purchased the vertical rod that hangs from the top of the door to the bottom for $14.99. Next I purchased the hooks which attach the pole to the door for $9.99. Then I purchase the storage baskets that I needed. I love the different sizes available... spice rack, narrow, deep, etc... Since the spices are now on their rack I have an extra cabinet in the kitchen. Yay!
If you're looking for a good way to organize your spices or anything else, I definitely suggest The Container Store!
