Save time and never search for spices again

 

It’s not in your pantry (who wants to take a walk over there everytime you’re by the stove)?

It’s not in your cabinet (who hates fishing around there for that spice that’s hiding behind the tall ones in the front?)

It’s in your drawer.

When you pull out the drawer, every spice you need is right there at a glance. It’s effortless!

To keep spices in a drawer, you’ll need low profile spice jars, like these.

I got mine years ago at Kitchen Caboodles.

How do you identify spices without labels? Well, you can get on Renee Muller’s labeling train (see why we’re all obsessed here). Or you can simply get to know what each spice looks like. Or use a permanent marker and mark the name of the spice on the bottom.
Now, how do you store the rest of your spices? Store spices that you don’t use often enough to keep in the drawer on a shelf in your pantry. Store larger containers of the spices in your drawer on a higher shelf. Keep them out of the way, as you’ll only need to pull them out with it’s time to refill.

  1. Nice! I don’t have even close to that amount of spices though… Currently I have S&P granulated garlic onion powder paprika and basil – what are other must have basics? Do you believe in spice mixes like Mrs Dash?
    Maybe do a thing post about this 🙂

    • I do believe in spice mixes for convenience for sure. Don’t have Mrs Dash but there’s a bunch of mixes on the list below.

      Sounds like you need some more 😉 Here’s the basics in my drawer.
      The Peppers: Black Peppers, White Pepper, Paprika, Chili Powder, Smoked Paprika, Crushed Red Pepper, Cayenne
      Herbs: Basil, Oregano, Thyme, Rosemary, Parsley, Dill, Mint, Fennel
      Basics: Couple types of Salt, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Cinnamon
      Middle-Eastern: Cumin, Allspice, Za’atar, Coriander, Schwarma Spice Mix, Turmeric
      Not-so-basic – Porcini Powder, Sumac, Mustard Powder,
      Some I’d keep in my drawer if I had more space (but they’re in the pantry): More spices mixes like pickling spices, Cajun rub, Montreal steak seasoning, Another homemade meat spice rub, Sour salt, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Lawry’s seasoned salt, Lawry’s garlic salt, pumpkin pie spice mix, cinnamon/sugar mix,
