When I picture my dream spice cabinet, it’s an orderly space with identical, labeled spice canisters lined up neatly in rows. It’s the picture of Type-A organization, whether those canisters are clear cylinders with little metal lids, square plastic bins with shaker tops, or country-inspired mini Mason jars. The point is, they all match and line up perfectly. But shockingly, when I reached out to some organizing pros to confirm that this is the clearly the best way to organize your spices, they unilaterally shut me down.
Turns out, my spice organizing goals have been all wrong.
