I guess this might not be practical for those who have >100 spices to manage, but for my collection and tiny kitchen it's very helpful.

I actually lined the insides of one of my cupboard units with magnetic strips to affix the jars to. The benefits are threefold.

1) It frees up cupboard space for me.
2) Since I order all my spices fresh, I need containers for them and I didn't want to have to go buy jars of spices off the grocery store aisle just to dump them out so I'd have a vessel
3) It makes it MUCH handier finding the spice I need instead of having to dig through a cupboard full of stuff trying to find the jar. And as I'm a gadget hound, I don't have the counter space to put a dedicated spice rack out.

One of my built in cupboard units is a spice rack - one of my favourite features in my kitchen!

Once I had a back of the pantry door rack that held everything in EIGHT shelves!
A cheap aluminum thing... Man did I love that system.
Now.. I am biblical too. Seek seek seek.. find.. sometimes.

I went from one carousel...to three...to a cupboard....but recently I moved them into a glass-front cabinet from Ikea (Leksvik collection) It's not the one that hangs on the wall - it's a standing cabinet, but really shallow, so good for spice jars. There's 6 shelves, and I have 12-13 jars on each shelf right now. But, there's room for another 2 rows in front of each jar, if need be. It works great for me.

Do a google search on "The Tubular Spice Company". With their spice tube set up you can store 40 spices in a 10 inch x 7 inch area. I use one in our motorhome and I'm thinking about one for the sticks and bricks house.
