I had a great time last weekend going to NC to see my Goddaughter, and all around awesome niece, graduate college and then be commissioned into the USAF! The bonus was, while at the home of her family I got to organize their spices! We took all of them out, putting them on the counter in alpha order then combined any that were duplicates and both were open, set aside unopened duplicates to store as "back-ups", cleaned off sticky bottles and ditched ones that were from the 1940's (ok, it wasn't THAT bad, but there were some nearly my age!). Then we cleaned the area where they are stored--they have a very cool specially built drawer for spices--and put them back in all in alpha order, making the chore of finding what one needs next time very simple! Give it a try. You'll be amazed how quickly you can make order out of chaos in your spice cabinet.
