What Works: Alphabetized Spices
Posted April 20, 2008on:
I cook a lot and work for a food company, so I probably have more spices than some home cooks. I put my spices and seasonings in alphabetical order ages ago, which is funny considering how much I struggle with organizing in so many other areas – even the cupboard space directly adjacent to the spice shelf. But the thing about alphabetizing spices is that there are no decisions to make; you just put the little jars in order on the shelf, and there you are!
I have no idea where I bought the shelf where I store the jars, but I found one here if you want to take a look. Mine is plastic, and I’m guessing it cost less than 19.99, but honestly $20 seems a small price to pay for something that has made my life easier for years.
