Spice strategy?

rworange | Sep 20, 201111:18 AM     59

I moved out of the country for a time and got rid of almost everything ... especially anything edible.

We FINALLY have a home and I'll be moving the stuff out of storage into our house.

I'm not looking for a spice rack, only a stragegy for storing spices.

I've had all sorts of spice holders/racks over the years and the never worked well ... either they take up too much counter or shelf space ... you have to use specific bottles which eventuall get lost and sort of let the spices go stale. The one consistant on spice racks, etc was they eventually landed in a yard sale.

Buying spice racks is like dating ... fpr the most part they seem great in the beginning ... but get tiresome or have some sort of flaw with familiarity.

To repeat ... I'm not looking for a spice rack. I'm looking for a spice system.

Freeform spice bottles and bags all over ... eh ... kind of too disorganized for me.

I'm sort of thinking of just one of those photo boxes. My last strategy was just devoiting a drawer to spices, but there was always something that didn't fit and other stuff got thrown in.

Any ideas?
