Is it just us or does finding the right spice jar in your cabinet sometimes feel like looking for a needle in a haystack? Spices are notoriously hard to organize, and while we can’t lend you a hand finding that hidden jar of cinnamon, we can offer you a solution that not only keeps things orderly but also saves you space: YouCopia’s SpiceStack Organizer.

We’re big fans of YouCopia’s storage solutions, and this popular spice rack comes backed with a solid 4.7-star rating on Amazon and over 1,500 positive reviews. And for good reason: It has a compact design that takes up very little square footage in your cabinet or on your counter, yet it’s roomy enough to fit up to 30 spice bottles of pretty much any size. That means you never have to deal with emptying spices into identical canisters again (which is a terrible idea anyway!).

“My wife and I recently moved from a 2200 sq ft home to a 750 sq ft apartment,” said one reviewer of the streamlined spice rack. “We love to cook, and this has helped us make the most out of our limited storage space.” Another happy customer added: “It says it can fit one larger bottle or two smaller bottles per slot but if you put the smaller spice bottles on their side you can fit three! So if you did that on every slot that’s 90 bottles!”

Besides keeping things tidy, the organizer makes cooking more efficient. To find the spice you want, simply pull out the tiered drawer, and slide it down so that everything is visible and within easy reach. The unit’s non-skid feet hold it securely in place so you don’t have to worry about it toppling over.

“As a spice hoarder, this spice organizer is a total dream,” a happy reviewer said of the rack, which comes in stark white and silver and includes labels to organize spices alphabetically, based on categories or expiration dates, or whatever system you prefer.

“Having just put together a spice mix for a pulled pork recipe I have to say this has saved me time searching bottle tops and moving jars from most used to least used,” a reviewer said.

Customers also appreciated that the spice rack ships completely assembled, saved them from buying “duplicate” spices of ones they already owned but couldn’t find, and even helped clear out expired spices.

As one reviewer summed it up: “It’s a sanity saver!”
