Let’s be honest, how organized is your spice cupboard? Mine is a disaster! I’ve tried using a basket to keep my spices organized, I’ve tried stacking them, and most recently, I’ve tried the rotating spinning shelf. This just isn’t working for me at all! More than half of my spices are too tall to fit on the bottom shelf so I have had an “overflow” cabinet to hold my taller spices and I can’t find them half the time and it just is an unorganized mess! Plus my cabinet is small and it is hard to actually rotate the spinning shelf anyway. See for yourself:
I recently watched a As Seen On TV ad for the Spicy Shelf and thought what a GREAT idea! The Spicy Shelf is a plastic shelf system that is stackable so you don’t waste any cupboard space. It can fit small cabinets (like mine) and come with extenders to make it fit nicely in larger cabinets or a pantry. The video does such a great job showing it’s possibilities I wanted to share it with you!
Now I want to share my personal experience with the Spicy Shelf and how I used it to organize my spice cupboard! As I mentioned above, my 3 previous attempts to keep my cabinet organized have failed. I got my Spicy Shelf, opened it up to see these pieces. It included 3 different sizes of legs (so you can choose the height of your spicy shelf racks, support legs, 2 shelves, optional extender pieces and instructions on how to assemble the Spicy Shelf.
It was very simple to put together via the locking system. My cabinet is VERY small so I didn’t use any of the extenders in fact I took off one of the “pre-attached” extenders to make it smaller and fit perfectly.
I slid the sides together to easily slip it into the cupboard.
Then I gently slid the sides back out to line up with the edge of the cabinet for a snug fit.
At this point I got so excited that this was really easy and was actually going to work that I forgot to take pictures when I attached the stacking shelf on top of this one. I again used the tallest set of legs. I started loading up and organizing my spices when I realized I hadn’t taken a picture in a while….so here is my half loaded spice cupboard, pretend the spices aren’t in there yet and you can only see how nicely the shelf stacks together! 😉
If your cupboard has pegs you can use those existing pegs to place the Spicy Shelf on it or use the optional legs like I used. Then the fun really began. I was able to organize by order of how often I use them, there wasn’t any wasted space, AND I can even fit my big spice containers on the top row! It is now clean and easy to find whatever I need without creating a giant mess!
Before I could hardly move my rotating shelf in a circle and had to go through it several times to find the correct spice. Now I can see them all easily! Here is my before and after picture:
You can use the Spicy Shelf for other things than spices. It can organize nail polish, craft supplies, medicine and more! Once I finished putting this in, my husband came home and saw, he said, “WOW, that is VERY nice and organized” We are all impressed with the Spicy Shelf.
