My Simple Method for Organising Spices

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... 

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Opened packets can spill, or the contents can go stale, if they're not sealed properly
  4. Spice jars or containers can take up quite a lot of storage space within a cabinet or drawer

My spice storage method is fairly simple and straightforward, so in today's episode of The Organised You TV, I'm detailing 4 simple steps that will help you organise your spice collection. I'll also be giving you a look at one of my favourite drawers in the kitchen - our spice drawer! Keep reading below this video for more ideas for how to organise your spice collection.

SPICE ORGANISATION IDEAS:

  • Spice rack/s on the back of a cabinet door that is either in the cooking zone or prep zone so the spices are quick to access
     
  • A Lazy Susan inside a deep cupboard
     
  • Utilize vertical wall space by attaching a magnetic sheet or magnetic strips to the wall, then add magnets to the bottom of your spice jars
     
  • Vertical pull-out spice drawer with several layers of storage
     
  • Step shelf to separate the layers of spice containers
     
  • An under-the-shelf pull-out rack
     
  • Attach small wire baskets to the inside of your pantry or cabinet
