If you don't have much room in your kitchen, then a magnetic spice rack for the fridge is a great way to store your herbs and spices while keeping them fresh. This DIY takes absolutely no skill, so if you're not crafty, don't worry.

All you need for are small containers with sealable lids, self-adhesive magnets, adhesive labels and a marker. I used 4-ounce plastic storage containers that you can buy at the grocery store, but you can find pretty metal containers at craft stores. Also, if you don't have any labels laying around you can use clear office tape that you can write on.

Once you have your supplies gathered, just peel the sticker off of the magnets and stick one on the bottom of each container. Fill the containers with herbs and spices and label the lids. Then, line the containers up on your refrigerator door.

My favorite part about this hack is that you can line your herbs and spices up alphabetically so that they are easy to find.
