How does your spice area look? Mine is a mess. Hopefully, I can soon say it WAS a mess. Let’s start at the beginning…
I just started reading this book I received as a Christmas present. Yes, it was from my Amazon wishlist, no big hints about my home!!
I’m hoping to write a book review soon, but I want to wait a few weeks to see if it “takes.” Anyhow, in January we are working on the kitchen. In week 3 I am told to write down my kitchen frustrations. One of them is my spice area. Basically, if a recipe calls for something more than salt and pepper, I have to take down every spice I own. I’ve tried different spice racks and shelves, but nothing really works. As I was doing a little online research, I decided I really like the idea and look of a magnetic spice rack, but they are very expensive if you have more than, oh, 5 spices. Then I found this (cue the angelic voices…aaahhhhh):
I am so excited to order this for 5 reasons:
1) It looks great. I’m hoping to mount this to the inside of my cupboard door, but I think I’ll like it so much I may have to start leaving my doors wide open!
2) My husband is not handy, so I think even I can manage to peel off the backing and apply the magnet to the inside of my cupboard door.
3) I can tell at a glance if I’m almost out of a spice.
4) I’m hoping I can write the expiration date on the back of the canister so I know when I should throw it out. (see note below)
5) I’m really excited to try the 8 oz. Bravada tins to stack in my pantry for brown sugar, cornstarch, powdered sugar and such. My pantry will look so together! Again, I might just throw open my pantry door when company is about to arrive!
