Help! Looking for a Better Spice Storage Solution

Good Questions

Q: I hate spice racks! They take up so much space and they tend to look messy. But my solution of having a bunch of spices shoved in a shoebox (I write the names on the tops) isn't working either!

Help! What do people use for spices that won't take up all of my counter space and will look neat?
