Cooked,
Alton Brown on the Food Network uses those magnetic style containers. They look very cool!

I will jump in here (sorry I am a lurker and have gotten a lot from you all) since I actually just came up with a really great solution to this. What used to take up 2 1/2 of my upper cabinets now fits neatly in an over the door shoe bag in my very tiny pantry. It would also work nailed to the inside if I didn't have door room, and I am thinking of doing that with all of our coffees and teas. Several spices fit in each (ie: several pepper blends fit in one pocket) and I also have room for baking powder, cornstarch, seasoning mixes, etc. Everyone who has seen it has adopted this idea, and I know at a glance what I have.

dovie, wow, for spices! I just started using one of those shoe bags on the back of the bathroom door for the shampoos and stuff. Ours is clear vinyl and we wipe the bottles dry first so it doesn't mildew up.

I can see that for spices it would work really well! At a glance everything could be seen and gotten to easily! And it doesn't take up cupboard or shelf space.

I have a spice cabinet that dh built when he built new cabinets for the kitchen. The spices and herbs are all on shelfs in alphabetical order. The two top shelfs hold things like pectin for jam or boxes of teas. I'm short too so I put my spices and herbs on the shelfs I can reach easily.

Love this idea!! I wish that I had a pantry that this would work on.

I reserve one entire cupboard for my spices, and most of the small spice jars I keep in an old deep-bottomed Rubbermaid/Tupperware container. Nothing fancy but it works.
