I’ve been on a Pinterest kick lately, and I’ve been wanting to find a way to organize my spices and seasonings without taking up a bunch of space in my pantry. A couponer needs all the shelf space they can get after all. 😉
I found these 12 count Spice Clips on Amazon, but they only hold 12 spices and I would need to buy at least three. That’s like $30! Yikes! So… I figured out another way to get the job done, and MUCH cheaper. That’s my favorite part.
You’ll need some Velcro and an old picture frame. I found one in the basement that my husband almost threw away. Bad Paul! haha!
I wiped the glass clean to create a nice surface. Start with the top for the smallest seasonings, securing the back Velcro to the glass first, then cut smaller portions of the front Velcro to secure around the lids of the spices, making sure that they could still be opened if needed.
I measured how far I wanted the next row and started the process all over again until I got the last row. I had exactly enough Velcro to finish the job, with about 10″ of the front side of the Velcro left. I’ll use that when some of these spices run out and I have to fill their spot with new ones.
In the end, I spent $6.00 on the entire spice rack, and I saved myself an entire cabinet’s worth of space. I chose the picture frame because it already had the hooks on the back for hanging, and well… it was FREE!
Do you have any space saving tips I need to know about? I’d love to hear them!
