I never even thought to ask at Lee Valley about magnets!  I picked up the sheet at an art supply store.  They really are a little too weak, but the Lee Valley ones sound like they just might be a little overwhelming for this project!


P.S. I thought it would also look really cool to do this with beads or crafty stuff.  Imagine how pretty all those sparkling beads and sequins would look.

Awesome idea.

We had a helluva time organizing our spices. Luckily, we have the cupboard space to spare, but have tons of spices so it was always a chore to find the one you were looking for (especially if it was mustard powder or something else that didn't used often). We tried alphabetizing them in the cupboard, but nobody ever put them back right, so the system broke down pretty quickly. The best I could come up with was to create a few small 'drawers' out of cardboard and label them with letter ranges on them so at least you'd have to search through fewer little shakers to figure out if we had what you were looking for or not.

Thanks for mentioning where you bought those canisters.  I'm in love with Lee Valley Tools.

I've seen something similar selling for $99.

I have some similar containers, but the lids are not totally secure.  I am wondering if these have screw on lids? Or am I just being paranoid?

No PopNo Style,

I am so with you on the number of spices.  We have 23 of those little tins on the fridge, and I will need to get another box of 12 cause there are at least 5 or 6 right now that we are out of.  In our other house, we had one whole cupboard of spices in various sizes of leftover jars.  Kind of overwhelming!

Ad_Junkie: yeah, they aren't the world's most secure tins.  The lids aren't screw on, they just press on to fit.  Being aluminum they also bend fairly easily (like if you drop them), but it is easy to press the edge of the lid in just slightly and it will fit tighter.  I haven't had any of the lids fall off, its more of a problem of a whole tin falling off it someone brushes against them.

Thanks all for your comments!  Great to know that others like them as much as I do!
