Other People's Pantries #16

From Karen (Family Style Food), in St. Louis, Missouri:

I stopped by your blog again recently and became inspired to post about the awful state of my spice cabinet. After seeing your neatly arranged spice rack, I was a little pink in the face.

Anyway, I'm happy to share this photo and link -- maybe I will get the help I need!


On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.

Come on -- show us your pantry.

Here's how.

To Karen:
It looks as if you might have tried a new arrangement by now -- do we get to see "after" as well as "before" ?
This was Lydia's week to show us an unusual schema for spice org, after all!

Looks like there's order to it!!

Love those jars on the top shelf - very stylish!

Looking at the comments on your blog, you've gotten great suggestions! I would add: is there a different place you can keep the herbs and spices? Basic spice racks on the wall are good if you have wall space away from the stove and light. My mother had racks on the inside of her cupboard doors so they were handy and only one jar deep. My solution to a 'set' of jars was to buy a case of baby food in glass jars (carrots: throw them in the pasta sauce), and label, always label. I have lots of non-compliant jars too. I like Lydia's categories for organization.

Thanks Lydia for posting the peek!

I'm truly embarrassed to say that my spice cabinet hasn't been organized yet; I've added even more spices but haven't had a day to get the work done. The good news is that I have a plan, have been to the Container Store and will "reveal" the after photo very soon.
