The Popular Spice Rack

You would think that I could find one bloody spice rack. Is that too much to ask for? One lousy spice rack for me to neatly pack all my spices away so that it doesn't clutter up my kitchen cupboards.

I have tried: Mr. Price Home, Clicks, Hardware stores (yes, I know!), Pick n Pay, Hyperama House and Home, Boardmans, Home Etc and I have tried a few branches of each.

Every single store has told me: "Sorry! We're sold out!"

Sold out of Spice Racks? Seriously???

The spice racks I have found all have filled spice bottles in them, which would make a lovely present, but it doesn't help me at all.

Who knew spice racks were so popular?!!?


Tomorrow I carry on with the hunt of the..... Popular Spice Rack!!! (said in a super hero voice)

Oh and I killed myself laughing at this:

Have you tried looking online for a spice rack?

The Blonde Blogshell said...

I actually haven't! I'm one of those: I need one....NOW!!

But, as I didn't realise this was going to be such a challenging task, I suppose I should try it!!

Do I just google it? How do I do that?
I sound ignorant, but yes, I guess I am when it comes to online shopping!! x

Dude, did you not know about the South African spice rack obsession? You are so out of the loop.

EVERYONE has one ;)

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Clearly, miss M!
Ha ha!!
I knew I was slow....but this is ridiculous!!


Tamara said...

Stop looking for one an they will magically appear all around you. Such si the way of the popular spice rack.

Lopz said...

There is only one way to solve this problem - EBAY!!!!

Just been catching up on your blog hun, you've had quite an eventful week - it's been enjoyable reading :-)

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Ah!!! Is that how it works, Tamara??

I thought that was how men worked!! LOL!

Just teasing!!

Ok, so I'm gonna wait...thing is my spices are sitting on my counter taking space *sigh*

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Hey Lopz, thanks for the compliment -yay!!


Um...I'm going to sound like the ultimate nerd... but I've tried eBay once before and got so hopelessly lost...I don't know how to do it!
*Blondie hangs her head in internet shame*

Lopz said...

And so you should! Ebay is only the greastest invention after the stiletto. I'm an addict. On second thoughts... maybe you shouldn't try it. We might start a national crisis here, and the economy is bad enough already! ;-)

Have you seen the SpiceStack? It is designed for your kitchen cabinet and the spices you buy at the grocery store. I think it may be what you are looking for. Check it out at www.SpiceStack.com.

I bought a pair of rocking pink Prada sunglasses from ebay the other day!

£26 nog al!

Sweet hey?

Ah, the stupid dam spice rack shortage. This whole story is rather de ja vu for me, and i can confirm that cape town is not hiding them. Uh mean, robertson's spices are standard size, why the hell should we buy all your empty square ones too? i gave up and made one from wood offcuts in dad's garage. But that won't really help you as it's not in stores either
