This is the best idea ever!  I have lots of cupboards and i feel the doors are a waste of space.  I'm going to attach sheets or strips of magnet to the insides of the doors and hope the tins stick.  Thanks for the inspiration!

I love it!!

I have the coolest thing to display my spices,  -- I use this thing I found at a garage sale last spring- it's a little rack-thinging from the 40's or 40's that had tall skinny bottles in it that held different types of fishing hooks. - The fishing tackel advertising inserts are still on the sides of it- I get tons of "oh, that's... cool" comments on it.

Great idea! but $5.50 a piece is too rich for my blood.

Are these the same thing? I hope so. A LOT less expensive. Except they don't have the 70mm.

Wow, that's a fantastic idea!

I've been trying to find a way for my boyfriend's kitchen to hold spices. It does look really interesting on the fridge.

You rock! That is one of the most original ideas I've seen using something we have to use everyday. Way to go! Grin

that's really awesome!

I would like to do a test tube spice rack, but I don't want to have to pay 2--30 bucks for one. Where could I possibly find old test tubes or even cheap new ones? Any particular sort of store or anything?

you can often get test tubes cheap on eBay.

My husband bought me 2 boxes of those containers from Lee Valley and I thought about doing something like that, but the lids seem not very tight to me -- have you found that to be the case?  I envision one falling off and spilling all over...  I would especially love to do this because we buy our spices in bulk from the health food store, so they're always shoved into the cabinet in little baggies.  Terrible.  You can buy similar containers for spices from, say, Bed Bath & Beyond (Bloodbath & Beyond) but they're expensive.

Think bulk spices.  In our area, we have a couple of grocery stores with bulk food departments and one with a nutrician/natural foods section in ehich you can buy bulk spices.  Not all of the stores are the same of course but, we find the spices at the natural foods section of the one grocery chain to be fresher than most of what's available on the shelf; how often the packages used to fill the bins are used up/sold is I'm sure the key.  The spices sold in bulk are sold in units per pound, which can be frightening.  However, we often get far more spice per dollar than in the containers even though the shelf unit pricing quotes dollars per ounce; I'm beginning to think that it is in terms of ounce volumes and not weight.

We also have some health stores in the area that sell bulk spices but not as convient to get to as the grocery stores.
