There are a few corners of our kitchen that are especially susceptible to chaos — particularly if they don’t have strong organizational systems in place to begin with. One of the first that comes to mind? Bottles and bottles of spices. Any good kitchen is (hopefully) stacked to the gills with quality spices meant to level up weeknight dinners and special occasion meals alike. However, spice bottles can be so annoying to organize: For starters, they tend to be on the smaller side and all different shapes and sizes, making a quality organization system hard to come by. Add to that the visual chaos of tons of different labels (and spice colors) and you have all the makings of a cabinet you basically … never want to open.

Enter: these ten genius spice organization systems that The Kitchn editors love for solving exactly these types of problems. Over the years, our team has vetted the best of the best when it comes to all sorts of kitchen gear — spice rack organizers included. While these space-saving picks range in price and functionality, they’re all sure to calm at least one corner of kitchen chaos.

With two tiers and a compact design, this space-saving Amazon organizer will double your cabinet space and make it so easy to find the spice you need.

The side of your fridge is an often-forgotten spot for sneaky storage — until now. These smart magnetic spice jars from Impresa attach to any metal via their lid, with a small but mighty hexagon design that allows them to stack together neatly in a pyramid-styled shape. A set of labels is also included to attach to the bottom of the jars for ease while you’re cooking and need to find the right seasoning ASAP. There are 60 labels included, making it easy to identify any seasoning you can think of, from garlic to garam masala.

These wall-mounted spice racks totally transformed the way one editor organized her rental kitchen, immediately allowing her to take advantage of previously unused wall space. The durable set of two is perfectly sized to hold up to a whopping 18 spice jars each, with bars that are positioned low enough to easily see which spice you’re looking for, but high enough that the canisters won't come tumbling out. You can also store heavier items like olive oil, vinegar, soy sauce, or other condiments on these shelves because they can carry up to 40 (!!) pounds.

One editor relies on these renter-friendly floating shelves all over her apartment, including in the kitchen where they house an assortment of spices and cooking oils. The key to their success (and style!) lies in a set of super-sticky adhesive squares that slide into the back of the shelves, allowing them to adhere to nearly any surface for super-stylish floating shelves that look way more expensive than they actually are.

This space-saving spice rack is a great option for renters or small-space dwellers who are short on cabinet space and can't dedicate a whole drawer to their spice collection.

These round frosted glass jars will keep light from prematurely aging your spices, which is just one of the many reasons why our editors love them. Use them to streamline a bunch of mismatched jars or create and house your own spice mixes, like the BBQ rub your friends just can't get enough of.

Williams Sonoma has the market cornered on stylish storage solutions and this spice stadium is no exception.

Choose from a selection of four colors for your metal rack, which you can display on your countertop or mount to your wall.
