OH what a chore! Not that it was hard to do, but finding what worked for us was the hard part. So many full-time RVers have really neat ideas for their spices. None of them work for us. Some of our friends have those great magnetic spice containers they put up near their cooking area, or on their refrigerator. Some use those great plastic spice holder racks on the inside of their cabinets. Great ideas! We even purchased the plastic spice holder racks, and they wouldn’t stay stuck due to the finish on the inside of my cabinets.I even tried cleaning them with rubbing alcohol. Nothing seemed to work for us. I (Stacy) am a tad bit of a neat freak. I don’t like anything on my fridge, nor do I want things cluttered on my limited counter spaces.
When we arrived in Pennsylvania for the holidays we knew we’d be stationary for about 5 weeks. We were coming up on our two-year full-time travel mark and it was time to get rid of the things we hadn’t used, and try to organize those things that have bothered us recently.
So the spice cabinet rehab began. Every time we stopped in our travels, “that” cabinet was the one where everything fell out when we opened it. Even using these handy tension rods helped, (which we’ll still use on travel days) but didn’t quite do the trick. Sure, things weren’t falling out anymore, now they were just tipping over inside the cabinets. A few weeks ago was the last straw, when we finished a long day of traveling and came in and opened the slides and we realized one of the spices must have not been closed all the way, and it spilled out all over the cabinet, and out the door, all over the counter top and all over the floor. Lucky for us it was just one of our steak rubs, and not any sort of oil.
I’m a lucky girl as Justin does most of our cooking. Not only do I not enjoy cooking like he does, but he’s much better at it than I am. So we definitely have some spices! All of which we use.
We found these little gems on Amazon. Made in the USA and probably the best quality we’ve seen in a long time. We love that they are clear, thick and durable. They are stackable, and perfect for our spices. They do make them little taller too, but with the size of our cabinet taller didn’t work. If you have shorter items inside, they do lock in place.
After almost 2 years on the road, it’s nice to have another project completed. Since we found a solution that works for us, we wanted to share it with you.

Justin made a short video for you to show you just how they fit in our cabinet and it gives you a visual of the containers.
