When I looked at Bag Lady's spice shelves here I wondered why I don't alphabetize my spices. I alphabetize almost everything else in my life! Or else arrange by color (clothes and towels, for instance. Clothes arranged alphabetically would be really inconvenient.)
I keep my spices in the drawer under the range top:
The ones I use all the time are in front, with the jumble in the back half being things I don't use often, or, like the sage container, things I now grow. (But might run out of. The horror!)
The jars with black tops in front of the baking soda don't even show up. I promise you the cinnamon and nutmeg are there. I can reach for all of them without looking, but I can't figure out what the logic of my arrangement can be.
