And now for a peek into my tiny kitchen! I've been trying to maximize space in there since we bought our home over 2 years ago, and we made a big step this week! I had these magnetic spice canisters that I had on the side of the refrigerator for the last few months. I wanted to put up a big piece of metal to hold them all up on the wall, but I ended up finding these great knife holders at the Henckel's warehouse sale. Then I was able to stock up on more spice canisters to fill up the racks and take care of most of the clutter in my cabinet (more room for new kitchen goodies - WOOHOO!!). Dino always hated trying to find my spices when he was making something in the kitchen (my method of "just knowing" where in the cabinet they were doesn't really work for him) so we went super nuts and put them in alphabetical order. We wrote on them with dry erase markers so we can always change them up later.














This saves us a lot of space, which is GREAT in a tiny kitchen.

Exposing herbs and spices to consistent direct light? Tisk, tisk!

I feel your pain on kitchen space. I converted our one storage closet in our apartment to a shelving system for kitchen stuff.

Apartment kitchens suck.
