    I use a container that I got from the dollar store. They are stackable tupperware type things, the Mr. Hueys are the perfect height and the lids still close.

    I have a vintage spice rack, but it is full already! I guess I need two, since I see many new misters headed my way soon :)

    kelly, if space is tight, i'd think the only way to go would be up? tiered baskets? something on the wall or hanging from the ceiling?

    i think my question is really - how do i store them and still see what color they are? ;)

    holly, i might go the tupperware route i think!

    steph, the problem with going up (and same for your suggestion with my clothes ;)) is that my apt is so small that too much on the wall will make it seem even smaller. it's really small in here! i've got shelves to put up so they'll probably end up somewhere on the shelf.

    ahhhh gotcha! and it wasn't me that made the up w/ clothes suggestion that would just be super busy!
    i'm hoping we get to see pictures of your apartment soon i'm so excited for you!

    Sterilite flip top storage box 3272918

    These are flip top. You could lay them in there and then sit the whole box on the shelf. You can still see the colors from the bottom. It's not a pretty container but it could work? Found them at Target. The company is Sterilite..

    thanks, steph! it's a DISASTER - hence the desperation for organization tips!!!

    This is my personal storage. They are Antonius plastic storage bins from Ikea.

    i have mine in a spinner rack but i also sprayed each one onto white labels and then circle punched and put them on the lids so i don't have to pull them out to see what color they are...here's a crummy pic of them but you can kinda see the round labels on the caps :)

    :) thanks! i found out about the harbor freight spinners from shanna and she spray painted hers- SO CUTE! i ended up covering mine in woodgrain because the plain black wasn't doing it, ha!

    I have my mists on RIBBA picture ledges from Ikea. Their inexpensive & don't take too much room on the walls yet hold 2 rows of mists...about 36 bottles of mr hueys & that's for the smaller size shelf.
