Sparks and I had been talking about organizing the spice drawer since we first began to cohabit, and he moved in with as many little bottles as I already had myself. We tried ignoring the problem and we tried sticking little labels on the lids of the bottles, but none of it was satisfactory. Finally, we bit the bullet and bought little tins. I’m so glad, and I hope this is the final answer.
I got rid of a lot of things I don’t use and can’t remember why I have (maybe Sparks brought them). In this drawer are the things I know I use at least once a year. I love to look at it. If spices used to be as valuable as gold, I think we’re well stocked.
