Spices at the stove
Linda posted a comment on another post about my practice of keeping spices at the stove, citing issues with degrading due to heat and light. Since this is to the right of the stove, it's in a dark area within the kitchen. I tend to use the front left burner, this is located away on the other side. Pictured above is what I am calling "spices at the stove." It also contains a can of Aldi's "Pam" spray, salt and pepper, as well as pot holders at the ready.
Beyond S & P, I keep seasoning blends here: pictured above are the salt based ones, which I need to use up and not replace, due to my medically imposed, salt restricted diet.
Here are the bulk of my salt free blends: the blue cap is a homemade version of Mrs Dash all purpose "table ready"? I think it's called.
I am not concerned about either light nor location near heat source. All of my herbs are up and away in a cabinet.
