We love seeing our readers’ kitchen organization projects! Here’s the latest to roll in: a neat, cute spice shelf from reader Sabine. Here’s how she lined up her spices with a little help from IKEA.

Sabine says:

I saw your post on the spice drawer and wanted to share my spice organisation. I took a $10 RIBBA picture ledge and bought 18 DROPPAR spice jars ($3 for 9 packs of 2). I then put it all up under our “kitchen moose” (we’re expat Canadians living in Berlin, so our moose is a little bit of home in our apartment). I wrote what’s in the jars on the bottom in case I forget.

Thanks Sabine! Love the moose. And I love how easy it is to spot a spice quickly, instead of rummaging around. Although, from long experience here, I do predict readers will be quick to point out that light is bad for spices. Really, though, that’s not an issue here in the least, as the DROPPAR jars are quite small and I imagine Sabine will be refilling them before they have a chance to lose their flavor.
