I'm guilty of haveing so many spices. To many to count. But I only use a small handfull of them. I use the creole seasoning, pepper, steak seasoning, and salt the most. I'll some others sometimes but not as much as them. what about you how many spices is in your cupboard?? which ones do you use the most??

I went to the kitchen and started counting them. The bad news I reached 30 and stopped counting, as I only use the first 10. Its terrible that I am wasting money with spices that we don't use now. I plan to spend some time this evening cleaning the cupboard. A couple of the jars have been in there a long time. I'm not sure if they are even made anymore. Thanks for making me take a look at my shelf.

I use garlic, oregano and lemon pepper more than anything else, but I keep sage, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and things like that for seasonal cooking. I have a lot more than I use, too, and a few that I use maybe once a year or so.

Oh yeah, my cupboard is full of spices, but I end up using only a couple. I hit the garlic pretty heavy and the tenderizers and steak spice mix alot, a couple shots of Oregano and Bay Leaf now and then, but I really need to get in there and cook better!

I think I have more then 20 or so and only use about 5 or so. Themean reason is because my husband who haven't cooked since we moved in together that was about 6 years ago go out and buy seasonings like he knows what they are for and on top of that don't use them. LOL

i pretty much only use garlic poweder, onion powder, chili powder, oregano, and montreal steak and montreal chicken seasoning. i have salt and pepper but i don't really use them all that very much. I also have cinnamon for anytime i make french toast or stuff like that. I guess i don't really have all tyhat many but i don't need that many either!

I recently cleaned out my spice cabinet --it was getting ridiculous! I like trying new recipes, but a lot of them call for some spice that I don't have, so I buy it, but end up never using it again.
