Spice and Seasoning Organization

There is nothing in my kitchen that I struggle more with, than organizing my spices and seasonings. I spend so much time in the kitchen and use so many different types of spices, that I have too many to just put away in a cabinet.

I know I’m not the only person to struggle with this, but what’s the solution?

I need a spice rack of some kind. But I need it to hold a lot, because well – I have a lot of herbs and spices that I cook with. I also need it to be compact enough that either it fits into a cabinet OR it doesn’t take up a huge chunk of space on my counters, which already have tons of appliances and kitchen gadgets on them. I was thinking of a wall spice rack I’m just not sure if I want to actually attach it to my kitchen wall or not.

I spent like two hours looking at spice racks. I looked at every model they carry and the capacity as well as where it would go in my kitchen.

I like the following for these reasons.

I love this one because it holds 48 spices. It matches a few other organizational supplies in my kitchen, like my bread box, napkin holder, lazy susan and my utensil caddy which are made of the same type of maple wood.

I love that it swivels. Makes finding what you want a lot easier. It’s kinda large, so I think it’ll take up some major counter space, but really, other than that, I can’t find anything wrong with it. If I can find a spot on my counters, this one would be perfect.

I also really like this wire rack – it’s really pretty, a bit more compact than the other one, except it only holds 20 jars. I kinda wish it went one tier higher – that at least would add 10 more jar, but anyway, I do like it.

It also swivels which I think is a plus for a counter top spice rack – if you can’t access the spices quickly and easily, I don’t really think its worth it. I’m not sure I want my spice racks on my counter top still, so I’m also checking out some cabinet organizers.

What do you use to organize your herbs, spices and seasonings? I’m definitely interested!

    Oooh, I love the first one – very nice. I use a cabinet organizer. The one that stacks one row behind the other like a staircase. I use it in the two cabinets above my stove, the only problem is that I am 5’3″ so unless I get out a stool, I can’t reach the ones far in the back very well (but I can see them!). When we move, I will put it in a lower cabinet, I think that would work better – or if I have the counter space, I might go with that first one!

    Wow! That’s the best spice rack I’ve ever seen… so far. Great for sorting herbs and spice too, thanks!
