Today: Bid your teetering spice jars adieu.


The easiest way to make sure you can always find the caraway seeds and the cinnamon never gets pushed to the very back? Empty store-bought spice jars into containers with clear lids. Write the name of the spice on a label, stick the label on the lid, and file your spices away in a shallow drawer. That way, the next time you need to find the allspice, all you'll need to do is take a quick scan of the drawer. (Bonus points for alphabetizing!)
