Make a Magnetic Spice Rack

Make a Magnetic Spice Rack

magnet.jpgVia– Here’s a neat article about making a magnetic spice rack using a sheet of metal, magnets and watchmaker cases. I really like this since you can see the spices inside the cases and arrange them in all sorts of neat ways or even via recipes. I think I might make one for all the little screws, nuts and bolts I have and mount it to a huge wall, possibly adding a white board between the metal. Article here, photo here.

    The only problem is that you should always keep your spices away from light.

    These watchmakers cases are available surplus in Minnesota at the Ax-Man stores. See for store locations and hours.

    Just over a year ago, my wife and I decided we were tired of digging for spices while cooking or, worse yet, discovering at the last minute that we didn’t have what we needed. It was time for some serious organization. I let my obsessive compulsive nature take over and worked up a pretty good system. In the process, we freed up a lot of valuable kitchen cabinet space, but as time passed, we decided my first attempt at a homemade spice rack was a bit too cumbersome. It was a great learning experience and one that I have recently leveraged when I went back to the drawing board for Spice Rack 2.0. Head over to my blog to read more about my second generation spice rack!
