These are especially helpful in deep cabinets, high places and small spaces, where it is hard to reach in and find what you need. They are most often used for spices, but are also great for jars and cans, water bottles, perfume, nail polish, vitamins, etc! You can use them in the refrigerator, pantry, and even under your bathroom sink!
