When I posted this photo a few days ago, when I was discussing our incoming tile, I got a few questions about those jars hanging out under the cabinet on the left.
Those are Chris’s most used, favorite spices. The cabinet above them holds the rest–he has a lot of spices. We originally had a spice rack, one of the spinning ones on the counter which was really convenient, and popular because of their convenience. But the downside is, they take up counter space. Boo.

We decided to install a magnetic knife strip (from Ikea) under the cabinet so Chris can still have his go-tos handy without sacrificing counter space and it has been working wonderfully.
The jars are from Target. They had different spices in them, but once those spices ran out, we ripped off the label, washed them out and refilled. These look kind of similar, and would work too, I’m sure.
We still have a few spots he can fill in, too. Definitely one of those, looks good-works good-we’re all happy, simple solutions.
Where do you store your spices?
