On a recent poll in our Home Balance Facebook community, I asked group members which kitchen item they found most difficult to store and organise. And the resounding answer was the spice collection!
There are a few reasons why spices can be so difficult to store and organise...
- There are so many different types of spices that you may have in your collection within bottles, jars, and/or packets that you need to store
- Although you may tend to use the same few spices over and over again, there's also many that you will have bought for a specific meal or a particular occasion which then just sitting there taking up storage space
- Opened packets can spill, or the contents can go stale, if they're not sealed properly
- Spice jars or containers can take up quite a lot of storage space within a cabinet or drawer
