I had read somewhere that keeping them in the freezer kept them longer. We don't put much in the door of the freezer, so we moved what little there was and moved all the spices over. It freed up a bunch of space in prime real estate and made better use of the freezer door space. It still is hard to see what's in there, but now it's only two deep and I just need to label them on the lids. I was also thinking, I would just put them in order alphabetically, then I would be more apt to know where they would be.
