Trying to find a specific spice in there is quite the challenge. Plus I could never see what was all in there, so I ended up buying spices I already had (such a waste of money). Seriously, this is not an efficient system.
So when the people at Spicy Shelf contacted me about trying their product, I jumped at the chance to get this shelf organized. The Spicy Shelf is a stackable organizer that increases usable storage space and makes everything easily visible, which is exactly what this shelf needs.
I started by pulling everything out of the cabinet. I combined duplicates and threw out a few expired bottles, which left me with all of these:
While my shelf was empty, I started assembling the Spicy Shelf. Assembly is really easy and no tools are required – everything just snaps into place. The shelves expand to fit different sized cabinets, so they work with narrow and wide cabinets. My cabinet is pretty large so I had to place mine side-by-side, but you can also stack them if you have a smaller cabinet. I also chose to use the legs included with the shelf, but you can also install the shelves using shelf pins.
Once my new shelves were installed I started adding back my spices. I organized everything by brand/jar, but I’m wondering if alphabetical would be easier? Although, for the most part, I remember which spice is in which jar, so that might be quicker than reciting the alphabet to find where the Italian Seasoning should be. Hmm, I’m still debating that one…
Anyway, after putting all of my spices back in the cabinet, I ended up with this organized beauty! Everything fits perfectly and I can actually read each label!
So although this product was provided to me for review, I’d honestly recommend it and say it’s worth the $19.95 price tag. You could even use it to organize nail polish or craft supplies!
