If so, which size? Which ones? Is it worth it? Any recommendations?
Thank you!

No, of course not!
That's soooooo much upkeep.

Unless you are OCD (in a non-clinical way) and have a lot of money and free time, don't do it.

They would make me so happy! But they’re also so impractical that I’ve never done it.

I do alphabetize my spices, though Wink

Yes, it was such a game changer for me I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner. I organized them all in a drawer and find what I need right away

The ones I bought are 4oz, and I keep extra spices in my pantry so I can refill when necessary

Yes and I love the look! That being said, I’m lazy and the spices that I use often, I just leave in the original container so I don’t need to keep refilling Hiding

I am a very low maintenance person and I don’t find that using mine are a bother! Aside from salt how often are you finishing a 4oz bottle of spice that you need to refill? I keep extras in my pantry and keep the clear matching jars on acrylic floating spice racks on my kitchen wall. It’s really nice!

No way
Mine are in the freezer
No need for matching jars. Content is the main thing

I use a lot of black pepper. A lot.

I’ve always wondered how it’s practical to keep spices in the freezer. Do you have room? And isn’t it a pain to keep opening the freezer to take them? And is it close by to your stove top?

I bought 6oz jars. The best thing ever!

I bought lovely labels to go with it.

Do you find 6 oz to be a good size? I’m afraid 4 oz is way too small, wondering if 6 is enough.

I love buying all the same size (and quality) of one brand.

6oz is definitely the better option. 4oz is too small.
If you can find 7oz, that's great too. Here in the UK it wasn't easy finding the 6oz. It's considered a large and non standard size.

I can't imagine doing this, but if you do, keep your extras in the freezer. They'll last a lot longer that way and it's not a big deal if you're not using it on a regular basis

I live in Israel. You needed to keep them either in freezer or in fridge or you will either have infested spices or spices that have no taste since humidity heat and strong light have altered them consideribly to the worse.
Spices are sensitive to everything, especially the fully found ones.

Ours are perfectly fine. Never had an issue.

I really want to get matching ones. As for the upkeep I usually have spice stores refill my old containers directly and pay per weight so it wouldn't involve anything extra.
