Today, I'm writing about the most expensive food product most of us have in our kitchens. Do you know what that product is?
|Pretty, but not the best storage method.|
It is the Spices & Dried Herbs you have on your shelf. Depending on where you live, and the type, these can cost $8 to $10 an ounce.
These products last about 6 months, with normal storage. You take the top off a jar of spices, remove the airtight, tamper-proof seal, and the replace the top. The container is no longer air-tight. The biggest enemies of your spices & herbs are, light, heat & air! (Never store your spices above or next to the stove.)
You can add the bug problem in there, too! They are especially fond of paprika and chili powder products.
If you have had to replace or purchase new spices as you began your seasonal baking and cooking, you know how costly it can be.
The solution? Enter the Tupperware Spice Containers and Carousel!

P.S. You really need two of these. One for your baking spices, and one for your cooking spices, blends & rubs.
Here's another great tip:
- Fill one large container with bandaids, ointment & alcohol swabs (most cuts happen in the kitchen).
- Fill another large container with toothpicks. They shake out easily.
- And if you're REALLY organized, fill a third with a small spool if clear polyester thread, a pkg. of needles and a small pair of scissors. You're ready for a quick button fix!
