IMO this is a cool trick to make your own travel spice rack for whatever. This is something most everybody can do with what they already have around the house. What you'll need: straws (clear work best) heat source (I waited till my wife went to work and used her hair thingy) scissors spices, sauces, oils of your choice Perks: solid container (beats a ziploc bag) small funnel (just makes loading the spices easier) silica packet (meh) It's pretty simple. 1. Using heat seal the bottom of a straw. 2. Load your spice. I used ¼, ½, and 1 teaspoon increments. Play with it, use what works best for you. I loaded small amounts of pepper, large amounts of sugar. 3. After loading your spice cut the straw leaving enough room to seal the top. 4. Seal the top... Load up various straws. Make whatevers you want. If you don't have clear straws just use a Sharpie to label each stick. *TIP* If you use your wife's hair thingy to seal your straws, clean the evidences before she gets home. Ask me how I know. As Emeril says...BAAM! That's it. You're finished.
