When I tell people we live in an RV, most picture a small cramped space with a tiny kitchen. It almost always makes me want to laugh. Our kitchen is actually larger than some apartment kitchens and has more storage space than I can fill!

I love to cook and we purposely picked an RV with a good sized kitchen space. I use a lot of spices in our meals and I refuse to downsize in this area of my life. I might be a minimalist but I don’t minimize on the things I love! 

I have seen many RVers ask how to store spices and there are so many great ideas out there! We live a frugal life and ended up just using what we had. The RV we purchased had this corner cabinet with a lazy Susan already installed.

This corner cabinet is actually above the sink and out of reach from the stove.

Since my spices are out of reach from the stove, I decided to store them in a wide container. I place the whole container on the counter while I am cooking and have easy clean up when I am done. No more putting away spices one at a time!

This container is so convenient!
I also use a tiny container for Caraway Seeds, Pepper, and Ground Clove, which I hardly ever use but still like on hand.
Other items in my pantry.
I use Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt when I can find it.
