Organize Spices and Seasoning Packets – Household Hint

Household hint: Organize Spices, Don’t throw out that old hanging shoe organizer!

I have always struggled to organize spices in my pantry.  I’ve finally figured out the perfect solution for me!

Most of us have one of those over the door shoe racks that started out as a great idea to organize your shoes and get them off the floor.  I had one prior to my wonderful hubby giving my closet a much needed overhaul. I wasn’t thrilled with it as a shoe rack and would find my shoes falling out on the floor anyway when the door opened and shut. Also, my bulkier shoes just didn’t fit in the pockets easily.

Some of you may have one and find it’s perfectly fine, but if you’re like me and realized it wasn’t/isn’t the best solution for your shoes then don’t throw it away!! Those packets of seasoning (you know, the ones that we always have trouble figuring how to neatly store) fit perfectly in the pockets!

I no longer have an over the door hanging shoe rack because I have an over the pantry door hanging spice rack and seasoning packet organizer instead!

Hubby used to chuckle as I organized and reorganized the pantry, always trying to figure out what to do with these seasoning packets so I knew what I had.  Well chuckle at this, buddy!

I also found you can even use some of the pockets to lay the bottled spices sideways facing out so you can see them all.  About 3 standard size spice bottles fit in each pocket safely without the danger of falling out.

Even those gigantic containers of spices that you get from membership clubs fit!

Hanging spice rack
I just thought I’d throw out that household hint in case you were contemplating the garbage can for your hanging shoe racks new home!  I wasn’t a fan of the shoe rack but definitely love it as a spice rack!

Even if you don’t already have one that you can convert, you can pick up one from Amazon for between $9 – $20 (if you are a  member  of Amazon Prime you can get FREE 2 Day Shipping in plenty of time to get organized for the holidays) . If you’re going to order one, be sure to measure the width of the door you are going to hang it on to make sure it clears the doorknob!  Some of these are wider than others. You can order one HERE!
