How to Organize Spices

We are tackling our Kitchen and getting it organized. Last week we shared lots of ideas for you to get your Pantry Organized. Today we are working on the Spices. Our spice cupboard was well…a disaster…organized chaos is maybe a better term.

But now, the Spices are Organized – easy to find which saves us time and money.

After looking around at many different ideas, including purchasing spice bottles, we decided to save some money and create our own with small Mason Jars and Chalkboard Labels.

The organization makes my heart sing! Really! I can’t tell you how great this is!

A couple months back, Doug and our youngest son removed all the spices from the cupboard (sorry I don’t have a before picture), then added them to the jars, and then added each spice name on a little piece of paper and tucked it under the lid. We used the spices from this cupboard (which is actually a drawer) to see how we would like it. And it worked out perfectly, so then it was time to get even more organized – add Chalkboard Labels and alphabetize them.

You can learn how to make the Chalkboard Labels over on Hoosier Homemade! They are easy and a fun project – plus they don’t cost very much!

We wanted all the spices to be visible instead of stacking them in a cupboard. So we decided to clean out a drawer for them.

Now we not only have organized spices, the sprinkles and candy I use for cupcakes are organized too!

  1. We have a long narrow drawer that just MIGHT work for spices – if we put the name on the top like you’ve shown. Great idea!

    Right now we have the top 5 on a small shelf within reach, then 2 small lazy susans in a cabinet for the rest. I don’t like it…so I’m looking for a better solution.

    For a while I had them all lined up on a shelf, but it looked too cluttered, was more to dust, and having spices out in jars in the sunlight isn’t good for the spices.

    Thanks for the suggestions :)

    I have an some extra space on my counter. I have my spices on a lazy susan. Since it is on the counter they are right on hand and the lazy susan makes finding the right one super easy. Of course this only works if you have lots of counter space.

  3. Can you please tell me where you got the jars that you added the chalk board labels too? I love the size of them. We were going to try a method with different jars similar to this, but they are too tall….I have had them waiting in the drawer and getting angry every time I open the drawer for over a year! And I don’t even have spices in them. Where did you get the shorter wider jars???? Help please! Thanks so much!
