Well, I've been meaning to do something similar with my spices. Between my mom visiting us and then us going to see her for a month, I haven't gotten to DIY as much as I normally do these days. I'm still on that vacation, in fact. However, less than a week after we get back we are taking a second vacation to Los Angeles and DisneyLand, so I decided to get a head start!
I found these clear plastic jars with stainless steel (maybe?) lids at Michael's. They are screw top and a 6 pack is $9.99. Google "Michael's Coupons" or check the Geoqpon app on your phone and you will find a 40% off one item coupon. They are ALWAYS out there. I have 16 jars of spices, so I just printed 3 coupons and checked out 3 times.
