Want to learn about some space-saving spice storage for your home? Today, let’s look at some ways to store your spices and save space, including what I think is the best spice storage solutions for your tiny kitchen.
THE BEST SPICE STORAGE SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR TINY KITCHEN
You’ve heard me say it before. Living in a small home has its unique challenges. Specifically, storage challenges!
Where do I put my Tupperware? (Aren’t all plastic containers called Tupperware? C’mon, tell me I’m not alone!)
Where should I store my Christmas decor?
Where do I store my two-sizes-too-small clothing (just keepin’ it real here, friends)?
But most importantly, where do I store my spices?
Okay, finding the best way to store your spices may NOT be on the top of your list. But in a tiny kitchen, you soon come to realize that cabinet and counter real estate is always at a high premium.
Here are some ways you can decorate your tiny kitchen on a budget!
Small Kitchen Spice Storage Dilemma
Again, I’ve mentioned before that MWA is a whopping 400 square feet. Most of the loft apartments in my townhouse community are considered studio apartments. However, my landlord decided to convert my sweet little apartment into a one-bedroom tiny home. As a result, the wee kitchen comes in at 10 x 10 feet. That’s 25% of my home! I don’t know why I’m complaining… that’s HUGE! 😉
Needless to say, finding space for my spices was actually frustrating in my huge-tiny kitchen with its minimal counter and cabinet space.
So, today I’m going to share the best (and most affordable) spice storage solution for my tiny kitchen, plus a few other space-saving spice racks (say that 5 times real fast) that could work for your kitchen, as well.
Oh, and did I mention that this unique spice storage is pretty, too? Win-win!
The Best Spice Storage Solution for MY Tiny Kitchen
The best location for storing spices in my tiny kitchen is the refrigerator!
It’s easy-peasy to simply label some magnetic spice tins and then arrange them on your fridge!

Affordable Spice Tins
These cute little magnetic tins were a steal at Michaels’ dollar bin area. I ended up getting white enamel as well as some silver-toned tins, and I like how it ties together the white fridge and the stainless pieces on the coffee station right next to it!
If you want something similar, you can get these Bekith Magnetic Spice Tins that are quite affordable, and they even have some extra features that are super helpful!The tins have magnets on the bottom (duh!)
Creating Labels for Spice Tins
The chalkboard labels were purchased at Michael’s as well. Here are some similar chalkboard labels.
(Tip: Be sure to measure the lids of your spice tins before purchasing your labels. You’ll want to be sure they are the correct size!)
If you are blessed to have a daughter (like me) or a friend that can do hand-lettering, ask them for a favor and have them write you spice names on the labels.If you don’t have a friend or fam member to do hand-lettering, I’ll be sharing next week how to create these labels in a few different ways!
By the way, I love how these open and have a wide mouth to easily access the spices with a measuring spoon!
Keep it Uncluttered
If you are like me, you like an uncluttered refrigerator.
I don’t keep tons of photos, invites, or different magnets on my fridge. A few simple hand-painted magnets (tutorial coming), a gifted Magnolia timer, and my spices are about all I keep on the fridge. This clutter-free area helps to keep a tiny kitchen looking neat, clean, and more spacious.Unless your grandson gives you his first watercolor painting… of horses! Yep, and he has a name for each one (color)! Then you HAVE to display it, at least for a while. 😉
