Using magnets is a fun way to display your spices and also saves space! Now you just need to decide where to put them? The fridge is an easy option, but if you simply add metal strips to  your kitchen, you can store your spices anywhere, even under the cabinets.

2. Create A Spice Drawer

If you are short on cabinet space consider using a drawer to store your spices. There are various drawer inserts to keep your spices organized. If you are trying to save money, you can even make your own!

3. Add Shelves

Whether you buy them or build them yourself, adding shelves to your spice cabinet makes sense. Instead of the spices getting stacked and lost, they are easy to see on their very own shelves.

3. Use the Pantry Door

If there are no free cabinets or drawers in your kitchen, use the inside of the pantry door. Again, you can save money by making these shelves on your own, or find something similar in the stores.
