A tip for pouring them into narow containers: use a funnel! You can make a disposable one with the corner of an old envelope - just snip off a bit small enough to fit inside the mouth of the test tube. You could label them with sticky labels cut into narrow strips and wrapped around the tubes.

I had the same problem - small kitchen and tons of spices. I was coveting the magnetic tins, but they were too pricey. My dh loved the test tube ones, but again, too spendy and, still wouldn't have the space to store them.
I wound up stumbling upon some little metal heart-shaped tins at Michael's craft store around Valentine's day that were on sale (something like a box of 20 tins for $14). I bought two boxes of them and a box of little, flat round magnets (a little smaller than, say, a Rolaid) and the spices take up so little space! I keep mine on the side of my fridge, which is near the stove, but you could probably mount them inside a cabinet door, too, either by mounting a piece of metal for the magnets or using Velcro on the door and the tin.
