    That might work if I could keep DH out of the cupboards. As soon as I organize them he needs something from the back and then just shoves it back in anywhere. Sometimes not even on the same shelf.

    I also have mine in alphabetical order and they are in a little track in a drawer. My husband knows better than to mess with them!

    Love this! I have three of some things. I am going to dedicate my next snow day to taking inventory.

    I don't like him in there either, but if he is using the spices then he is cooking and I'm not, so I guess it's a trade off

    That's what I was trying to do. I started making crockpot meals and saw that some of these were getting repeated in the recipes. I took them all out and had my laptop and did the list. I have more but they are sort of random. A cool salt I bought at a fair etc.

    I don't even know what I have in there...probably mostly outdated....but they're all outdated on the same shelf. I really do need to get the cabinets cleaned out. I got a couple cleaned and need to finish it up.

    I got a sewing machine for my husband! Good trade, huh?

    This is a good article on herbs and spices
    How Long Do Spices Last? And Other Spicy Questions | Mrs. Fields Secrets

    I always hear honey can last forever. If it crystalizes you can heat that down. Then I read that you shouldn't keep honey in the dark. I'd have to look into that more. Seems strange.
