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. If your spices could use some help, here are our tips on how to organize spices.

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.
