My kitchen is still in moving mode

Since we moved in September I have been organizing and planning.  My kitchen is totally different then it was in my old house.  I had a large open kitchen with plenty of storage.  Our new farm house has a good size kitchen for most but it is a bit small for me with less cupboards.
  I did not make a choice to live here based on the kitchen but based on the whole home and the 30 some acres of room to roam :-)  My spice rack was another item that I left behind.  Why?  I wanted to revamp and refresh all my spices.   Spices only last so long and if you do not use them up you best toss them out.  

I am browsing spice racks  and man oh man there are a lot to choose from.  First I look at my kitchen and decide where to place the kitchen spice racks I want to make sure to keep it away from the heat and out of the sun.  I have huge windows above the sink and really do not have an area for spices on that wall.  I have herbs growing on my window sill and am preparing a plan for my husband to build newer shelves to grow a larger assortment of lettuces.  A wall spice rack is not going to work for me.  

I have two cupboards that are lazy susans.  This will be the best place to add a rack and it will ensure everything stays cool.  With the holidays here I am making my lists for my kids and for myself.  I cut out pictures and attach them to my fridge to add little hints.  LOL, do you remember to leave little hints or ask for something special for yourself?  Even a back rub can get gift wrapped with a little card to your sweetie.

  1. I actually keep my spices in a drawer, ok two drawers. This house I'm in now has so many kitchen drawers so that was the logical choice. It's so fun organizing kitchens :)

  2. I like that spice rack in the picture. That is neat!

  3. I love lazy susans, they make things so accessible…I'm debating whether a spice rack or another method would make cooking easier for me.

  4. I have yet to find a good way to organize my spices that works with my space. Right now they're all tossed into two rubbermaid containers.
