A while ago, I bought a package of 4 glass jars from IKEA. As someone who buys spices in packets, my plan was to put all the open bags of spices I had at home in the jars, and continue buying my spices in the usual small plastic containers found at the supermarket.

I realized after a while that it was ridiculously cheaper to buy the glass jars and spice packets individually instead.

$5.99 for a 0.8 oz plastic container of spice, compared to .85 cents for the bag of spice.  The four glass jars went for $2.99 a box.

Meaning, I can refill my glass jars for about .85 cents a pop!

Yep, that’s him again on the TV. I like to watch Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on Sundays.

Don’t hate me.

Life is good…and I love IKEA.

It’s nuts how much I love my spice jars. I like to stare at them lovingly when the light hits them just so…

Ahem.

Just a few days later, I returned to Ikea and bought some more. So far, I have bought five boxes of jars.

I need to be stopped.

How do you store your spices?

Mucho love and laughter,
