Spicing Up My Craft Storage!

Lately, I have been watching tons of youtube videos on craft storage.  I came across this brilliant idea to use a spice rack…

It is perfect to store little brads, bling, flower molds, etc.

To organize everything, I punched out little circles in different colors and labeled them accordingly.

It sits perfectly on my crafting desk and I love how easy it is to use. So next time, think twice before throwing away your spice rack.  Though, it is amazing that spice racks are left on the kitchen counter for years … yikes and yuck!

So how long should you keep spices?

Extracts 4 years (except pure vanilla, which lasts indefinitely)

Whole Spices 3-4 years

Ground Spices 2-3 years

Dried Herbs 1-3 years

Seasoning Blends 1-2 years
