My new spice rack!

Ok, I think I am completely too excited about my new spice rack.

I finally got sick of buying multiples of the same spices and even still not being able to find what I needed. All the ready made spice racks didn't have enough jars or spots for my bagillion spices... so I made my own.
I bought a 12x24" piece of sheet metal from home depot, about 10$
punched holes in it where the hinge screws and door handle screws went, and one extra hole in the upper right corner. Then I (or more accurately, husband :) ) mounted it onto the cabinet door.
I got these little containers from the container store. It shows a spice rack at the top but the pack of 3 metal containers is 5.99 under the "we also recommend." I also found a 20% off coupon for an entire order and picked them up in the store. Total was about 50$ and I have some left to fill.

Or there are some plastic ones that are cheaper, but I splurged.

Dump your spices in the containers and you are good to go... unless you want to actually know whats in them :)
So I labeled them with some Avery "clear" (which are really more like frosted) address labels.

Ta DA instant organizational bliss. :)
