A spinning spice rack a great way to organize bottles of dried herbs and spices
Cabinets make it easy for us to keep the contents of a room in order. The kitchen, for example, has a lot going on. There are utensils, cutting boards, cookware, storage containers, and many more. If you’re not good at organizing, it could be a bit of a hunt in there. But with cabinets, we can easily store everything away and have it organized for when we need it.
Cabinets are one of those things in life that we just can’t live without. They help to organize our homes and office spaces and make our lives a whole lot easier. But, let’s be honest, they don’t always work the way we want them to. Thankfully, there are a few hacks that can help make our cabinets work better for us.
I realized that the back part of the cabinet is very hard to reach. If you’re anything like me who’s quite ‘vertically challenged,’ you’ll understand what I’m saying. We have a kitchen cabinet filled with various bottles of dried herbs and spices. I always have to get a stool to reach the back of the cabinet, and even then it’s a bit of a stretch. I’ve tried to organize the bottles so that the ones I use most often are in the front, but it’s still a pain. I’ve been thinking about ways to make the back of the cabinet more accessible.
My husband organized the spices in the cabinet all lined up. I need a stool to be able to inspect each one and see their labels. Inspecting each spice is like a treasure hunt for me. I get excited to see what new spices my husband has found. It was when I nearly fell off the stool that my husband decided to make some changes.
He had been meaning to make some changes around the house for a while now and one of those changes meant building a spinning spice rack. He had seen a tutorial video online and thought it was just what he needed. It involved a lot of woodwork but nothing that was too complicated.
Plus, it would be a great way to show off the spices and make cooking that much easier. He got to work right away and within a few hours, he had the rack built and ready to go. He was so proud of himself and couldn’t wait to use it the next time I cooked. It was a great addition to the kitchen and made cooking even more enjoyable.
