Small jars for spices, what sizes work best?

SocksManly | Jul 3, 2012 07:50 PM

While the magnetic tins look cool, they're just too expensive for me to buy enough of them.

So I was thinking of ordering some of those really small glass bottles that hotels have with jam in them.

I'm looking on Amazon and I see 1oz, 1.5oz, 2oz..... 4oz is the size of a baby food jar.

Wondering what size would be best? 1oz seems pretty small, just 6 teaspoons... Easiest thing to order I guess too, I can get 60 of them (with jam!) for ~$30.

Then there's empty scientific type glass bottles I see here, 2oz jars, $24 for 24 of them.

Maybe the baby food sized jars are best though?

Any recommendations?
