A few months ago when I received sample seasoning blends from Victoria's Gourmet, I was overwhelmed! There were so many of them! The seasoning blends came in super cute little tins, but I couldn't figure out where in the world I was going to store them.
I have a TINY kitchen and my spice/seasoning shelf space is minimal and completely full at the moment! I also knew if I didn't keep the spices in sight, I probably wouldn't use them. So where in the world to put them...
And then it dawned on me... I remembered seeing stores sell little tins with a magnet on the back of them for spices that could be stored on the fridge. Despite being cramped already, I could certainly put these little tins on the fridge...
Now let me tell you something... I'm NOT a crafter... Pinterest usually bores me... and any hobby that needs more "stuff" than I already have just isn't my cup of tea... so just the thought of doing a "craft" was amusing... BUT...
I soldiered on and bought some some small round magnets and some super bonder glue stuff that supposedly sticks anything to anything. One evening after work I took all the little tins and glued the magnets to the back of them. These were smaller magnets and if I did this project again, I would have found ones that were a little stronger and maybe a little larger... but regardless... the end result was pretty cute:
These small magnets weren't strong enough to hold the tins up without support on the fridge alone, but when the tins were stacked up against each other they had support and didn't move! Voila... magnetized storage!
My favorite part? I LOVED the colors! It really added some pop to my kitchen and I now I actually use these spices all the time because I can see them. The cool thing about having them in this arrangement is that if you pull out a spice somewhere in the "magnetized seasoning tower" they just scoot down as if you were playing spices "Tetris!" My husband thinks it awesome and he was so surprised by my creativity!
