Picture this: You're whipping up your mom's famous Chicken Noodle Soup when you get to the part of the recipe that calls for a bay leaf. You know you have a bottle of them stored somewhere, but your spice rack isn't exactly in Marie Kondo-shape yet. (Ain't nobody got thyme for that.) Not only is your soup left boiling without said bay leaf, but you've sufficiently messed up your dedicated spice drawer even more. Take a cue from one of these top-notch organization hacks and get your spice stash in tip-top shape.
