Organizing spices - container recommendations?

buttertart | Jan 26, 2009 09:04 AM

I have at least 50 different spices and herbs, mostly in various types of unwieldy / unreclosable packaging (plastic bags, etc), jammed into and overflowing 2 13x9 pans in my (NYC, tiny kitchen) cupboard, perpetually threatening avalanche when the cupboard is opened (not to mention being very annoying to sort through). Does anyone have any ideas on containers I could buy that would maximize use of space and make it possible to get something out without pulling the whole schmeer out? Perhaps a segmented plastic box? Need something that would isolate each type of spice to prevent transfer of flavors. All suggestions welcomed.
