I’m trying to figure out how many dried spices I use. In the spirit of reducing, reusing, and recycling, I’ve been using the small jars that jams come in, and the jars that the nut butters I buy come in. However, I’ve run out of the small jars because I make my own jam now. I’ve broken some, and some of them are in use.

I’m looking at needing to buy spice jars to organize the pantry. I’ve looked at Anchor Hocking, Oxo, Sur La Table, Bed Bath and Beyond, along with several on-line companies. I really really like the Anchor Hocking square jar. Problem: there is no price on their website. How can you be selling something and not show a price? Are they really that expensive?

I really need to organize the storage in my pantry. Every time I think it’s organized, it becomes a mess again. I’ve been having an argument with the teeny tiny kitchen, but I’ve made a lot of really good food in it, and I don’t want to be disgruntled, I just want to be able to be comfortable cooking.

I’m wondering if any of you who read this blog have any ideas about spice storage and pantry shelving. I’d really appreciate it.
