Even if you don't have a tiny kitchen, it's pretty much a given that your spice storage is not organized (read: it's a mess).

But it doesn't have to be that way!

Sure, there are fancy spice-specific storage solutions, but what if your problems are space and being able to see all the spices at a glance? Well, Imgur user pomax found a way to solve both issues!

With around 70 large mason jars full of spices, the six cases that housed them threatened to take over his kitchen.

The present storage solution was stacking them under the counter. It just wasn't working anymore, and it was constantly difficult to find the desired spice efficiently.

That's when he noticed a mason jar-sized space beside his refrigerator and came up with a genius plan to build a roll-out spice rack.

He started by measuring precise dimensions to make sure the rack would fit properly.

A combination of wooden boards and dowels would house the mason jar spices.

Then it was time to get to work cutting the boards.

He made sure to test the fit before moving on to the next step.

After that, it was just a matter of screwing everything together and adding the wheels.

It tucks away beside the fridge so perfectly that you wouldn't even know it was there if you weren't looking for it.

Finally, he added all his spice jars to the rack. What a space saver!

Even if you don't use many spices, this DIY can be adjusted to store all kinds of kitchen items!
