  1. Great ideas! I HATE my spice cabinet. And since I can never find anything, I have like 3 jars of oregano, lol. 

    I really like the pullout one. Just not sure if my cabinets are tall enough to fit it. I wonder if they make one a little shorter. I will have to get out the measuring tape! Thanks!

    1. Hi Katie,

      Great choice. I like pull out racks too. I have one for crockeries and have been using it for about 10 years now. It is very practical. 

      It is best to get the measurement right. All the best!

      Good day!

  4. Excellent tips as usual, Sharon. I love things organized. And these organizers interest me.

    My mom stores all spices in the refrigerator. And I have a couple of questions:

    1. Do we need to store spices in the refrigerator? (considering the hot and humid weather here in Singapore)

    2. Are there spice organizers for the refrigerator?

    Look forward to your kind advice.

    1. Hi Tim,

      it is not necessary to store spices in the refrigerator. Once a new jar of spice is opened, it will trap humidity either you stored in at a cool dry place or refrigerator. Thus it is best to buy a smaller jar.

      Should you have a bigger packet or jar, fill them into a small airtight container and leave it outside while the balance sealed tightly preferably vacuum sealed and you may store this in the refrigerator.

      On the other hand, red-coloured spices particularly paprika, chilli powder and red pepper including chilli flakes are best kept in the refrigerator. I learned this recently as I found mine to have discoloured (gone pale), leaving them outside. And the potency dissipated too.

      The Stow-n-Spin Lazy Susan Turntable Spice Rack is suited for the refrigerator. Besides spice bottles or jars, sauce bottles or cans can be organized neatly. Take a look here.

      Best regards,
      Sharon
