Well today is Spices and they started out like this: Def not very visually pleasing.. Normally we keep all this stuff above the Microwave and it had to be taken out b/c the Microwave is being worked on...
First thing I had to do was grouping: Chinese Spices soy sauce etc, Marinating Items like dales etc and then for some reason I have like 15 different kinds of Vinegar so they got their own group as well.
Then I made some labels you see below:
And put them on these plastiky Martha Stewart Baskets, which make retrieving stuff MUCH easier rather than sorting through all those bottles which are above my head and I cant see, i just pull down the correct basket and find what I need. Looks beautiful too!
Now I still havent decided between a Spice Rack or a Spice Drawer.... thoughts? I found this really cool article on Martha Stewart.com that you can print your own labels and what not from her templates.
And here are some ideas from the Container Store (a.k.a. Heaven on Earth)
Ladies, Which do you prefer? The rack or the drawer? Leave your comments after the jump and links to any products you love for this! Thanks!
