Let's get spicy!

The pictures uploaded upside down and I'm not going to take the time to fix them so here are some after and before pictures. I've been looking for a way to arrange my lovely spice collection without spending a bunch of money. For less than $25, this is what I came up with:

TheCount and I were at Tuesday Morning and I saw these bead holders for .74 for each stack of four. I figured it would be worth a try to see if my seasonings would fit. It allowed me to condense my spices a lot and through away half of my spice bottles and the rest I put in 2 freezer bags and put them away.

The stand came from the Home Goods clearance aisle. $10! It had enough space to also store my random sugars (nutmeg sugar, vanilla sugar, chocolate sugar, and cinnamon sugar) and my big flour and sugar containers. I love this set up so much more than the dumb setup I had previously.

This is the dumb set up I had before. My spices were stored in this cabinet above the stove. Do you want to know how many times per week the spices fell out of this dang cabinet into what I was cooking? Well I'll tell you, twice. I also had to take everything out in order to find what I was looking for. My new set up is so much better. This picture would also be so much better at the top of the post.

Lol. Me and blogger have a pic fight almost every single time i upload them. Annoying! My spice arrangement is temporary so I'm not too concerned about its limited functionality.

Good solution ~ I wish we had a Home Goods. People seem to get really good stuff on the cheap. I'm slightly jealous!
