Speecey Spicey

One thing I promised myself when we remodeled our kitchen was a new set of spice containers to replace the marinated artichoke jars with their cruddy, unreadable (or missing) labels that I've been using for 20-plus years. I finally found the (almost) perfect thing in these great little tins from The Container Store that let me see at a glance how much of each spice I have, plus there's a clever shaker in the side of the lid that allows even bigger dried herbs to shake out. The almost perfect part? They have magnets on the bottom, which I don't need, and they didn't come with labels I could fill out and stick on (I just made my own). At a little over $1.50 each, they'll do the job, and I'm thrilled.
