Call me a fusspot but I really don't like having a mish-mosh of spice jars, packets, tins and bags. A few years ago when we built a pantry in our kitchen, I added 2 spice drawers and decided it was time to get rid of the jars and bags, at last! I needed something with labels on top so I could pull open the drawers and see all the spice names at once. I bought a bunch of food-safe plastic containers from Consolidated Plastics -- yes, you may recognize them from the doctor's office, but we don't need to discuss that -- and then a wet-erase pen from Staples, and ... ta-da! Any time I run out of a spice, I just rinse the label off the top and add a new one. Inner fusspot satisfied.
