Ok - so I may be a little anal retentive. My spices have an exact place for each one. I can reach for something without even looking. Mine are in alphabetical order. Last night was the last time I used any spices. So today, I decided I wanted a bloody mary. I grabbed the celery salt off hand and put the first shake into the vodka/tomato juice. It wasn't celery salt - it was salad seasoning! DH had been in the cupboard after I had gone to sleep last night and apparently decided to "rummage around" for what he was looking for (he knows better). Low and behold, all my spices were mixed up. So after a nice re-arrangement and discussion with DH, I got to wondering - how do you do your spices?
PS - the best spice rack I have ever seen my dad built for my mom. There was a large space next to the refrigerator so he made a spice rack the height/depth of the refrigerator, about 4" wide with shelves all the way down. He placed this on a pair old roller-skates so that it could "roll out" with a handle on the front! Great use of wasted space and old skates!
