I have a cuisinart coffee grinder that has a lift out container, that's perfect for grinding spices.

To grind nuts, I have a teeny (1cup) food processor that I couldn't live without. It takes up less room than a grinder and is great for a lot of things. I wish I could tell you where I got it, but it was a free gift with purchase years ago.

I have several coffee grinders. I think I got two of them free from Community Coffee years ago. I bought one at Wal*Mart to travel with. I use them for grinding spices, flax, whatever. If you need to clean one of the strong smell after grinding spices, throw a piece of bread into it and grind. The bread absorbs the odors and the oils from herbs.

We never use our coffee grinder for coffee, so I use it for my flax seeds. Grind up a pile then keep it in the fridge for the several days it takes to use it. The coffee grinder is nothing special and quite old and does just fine for this purpose.

I have a Black & Decker coffee grinder that I use to grind everything from cumin seeds to cinnamon to flax seeds. Just not coffee! I had a different brand before that just died from being old. Both seem to do a fine job. I've never ground nuts in the grinder, however. For that I usually use the blender or food processor. The coffee grinder I think is too small for most of the nut grinding quantities I would need.

I just bought a regular old coffee grinder. I am not even sure which brand and I really haven't used it much. I have been eating chia seeds which you soak in liquid and then eat the liquid seed combo so I haven't needed the grinder. I also found ground flax seeds (organic) in single serving packs. I use those on occasion.
