I’ve been researching RV spice racks, spice storage and RV spice clips because the last time we were on the road, on the FIRST day driving, there was a spice disaster. We had a lovely metal spice rack with my spices loaded in place and when we got to our first stop we had cumin EVERYWHERE! It actually took awhile to get the cumin smell out of the trailer. From then on I stored the bottles in a plastic bin like the one in the picture below, however, the lids would knock and chip as we drove down the road and spices still went everywhere within the plastic bin.
Fast forward to planning for the road take 2. This time instead of relying on google, I emailed our friends at Airstream Life Magazine, who spend a great deal of time on the road, and Eleanor happens to be a chef. It turns out, she buys her spices in bulk and uses childproof prescription bottles. Genius.
So then I start googling again looking for a source for childproof vials and found I would have to buy 90 of them (when I only need 40) and with shipping it just seemed a little outrageous. So I reached out to some friends and posted on facebook. I got a few (thanks Leere and Alli) but not enough. So Thursday when we picked up Curtis from his surgery, I asked the technician if we could buy the bottles from them. They said yes, and only charged me $4 for 40 and had me put the $4 in the ASPCA jar!
Anyway – so I made labels and filled the jars and I’m ready to go!
