I would like to have long racks of little cork topped hand thrown clay 
containers, but .. labelling would be an issue (I'm not so good at 
labelling and keeping labels current).  I've also got 3 shelves of one 
entire wall cabinet that are devoted just about solely to just herbs, 
spices, etc. So theres a LOT of containers to keep track of.

As a compromise I've got many of the old "spice island" spice bottles with 
the labells soaked off, filled with the current spice/herb whatever, and 
then labelled on bottle AND lid in magic marker.

For my toolbox (aka travelling spice box) I use some of the glass plunger 
lid jars, and then several film canisters (film canisters are labelled on 
the lid only).  These items often get changed out and refreshed, so I'm not 
too worried about quantity, just quality.
