Spices... in the Fridge?

GOT A KITCHEN full of spices that are just dying to be organized? Want a new take on the spice rack? Or maybe you just need a cute way to store some of your cooking goodies. It's no secret that I am obsessed with miniatures, so when I attended a housewarming party awhile back, I was immediately drawn to the hostess's idea of using a tin vintage toy refrigerator for storage purposes. 

The one pictured below was purchased off of eBay for a mere $10, but you can check out your local flea market or antique shop for toys like this. The fridge may look small, but each rack holds up to 9 spice jars. If you're mathematically challenged, that means a total of up to 27 spices!
