Spicing things up, organizationally

More creative in my life and only one project at at time, my goals for this year.

I decided to start small with a task that I've been wanting to do for awhile: the spice cabinet.  Our builder put in these awesome spice drawers/cabinets on both sides of the oven.  I love them, but I haven't been using them to their potential.  I hate having to pick out every single spice every single time in order to find something.  Change needed to happen.

So I bought some cute little glass bottles (3 for 1$, yay!) with white lids from the dollar store and set out on my task.  My goal was to be able to write the spice name on the lid then have them sorted so it was much easier to find what I was looking for.

 After:



Observations
I didn't buy enough white capped bottles.
I have way less clutter now that it has been organized.
There is rhyme and reason to my madness.
I didn't organize the other side of the stove because I couldn't find anything to put there, will work on that for next week.
I like having little projects.

  1. Those drawers are so cool. Someday when we remodel our kitchen I want to put those in. I see basil and nutmeg - two of my favorite spices - this is why I like you so much!

  5. Genius to label the top of the spices! I'm quite jealous of that spice rack!
