Living in NYC, our kitchen storage is very limited. I try to keep stuff pretty organized and am always on the look out for helpful storage tips or plans. Have you seen those magnetic storage tins for spices? I love the idea and even bought a few to try out on my fridge. They felt too huge on my tiny fridge but I wanted to find another way to use them. Lucky for me, my boyfriend happens to be a genius and he came up with an awesome way to use the magnetic tins. We glued rulers to the underside of the cabinets so the spice tins hang upside down. I made labels using rubber stamps that I scanned, scaled down and printed onto sticker paper. It worked out pretty perfectly, and the spices are all within easy reach when I am cooking. Plus they look cute all in line, right? I’m kind of in love with it. What do you think?p.s. Even though foam mounting tape is pictured here, do not use it. I tried that first and it wasn’t strong enough so I redid with Gorilla glue.
*Update: Our storage solution made it to The Kitchn. Check it out, we’re famous!
