I think that this post pressure thing might work (see To do's). On Sunday morning, while the house was still quiet, I made myself a nice cup of coffee and got to work on my spice cabinet. Stage one, take everything out of the cabinet and clutter up the counter top. This is where the blog pressure kicked in, because I saw all of this crap and I just did not want to deal.
Deep breath. I threw out everything expired and made two lists: have and need. The need is especially important with the Christmas Season almost upon us. It is Weihnachtsmarkt time and every respectable one will have a spice stand. Anyway... I moved one shelf up and replaced my regular turn table with a two-tiered version (by the way the old turntable has found a home and I will do a post about it soon). This is how the cabinet looks now.
A bit of an improvement, I think. Now I just have find some more cohesive containers to make it look a little less all over the place. I am thinking of picking up the DROPPAR spice jars from IKEA. As you might be able to see (my apologies for picture quality) I have a RATIONELL VARIERA spice rack mounted on the door, but I think I will just keep it to one and will eventually keep my six most used spices in them. On to the next.
