Hello World! Welcome Friends! The beginning of the new year always seems to have everyone on the organization band wagon. We want to purge the items we aren’t using and get our houses cleaned and organized. Since completing my Under the Sink Organization, I have been itching to tackle my spices.
Spices are plentiful in our household. Both Greg and I enjoy cooking and “making it up” as we go recipes. So, spices are something that we simply cannot do without in our kitchen. When we moved in, I wanted a space that would house all of the spices together. I also wanted to be able to see all of them without having to rummage through a drawer or cabinet moving spices to find the desired spice. The best place for this was the inside of the pantry door. And, typical, I forgot to take a before picture. It wasn’t too bad, but it definitely didn’t look pretty with different size bottles and boxes.
I purchased two of the wire racks as well as the Ikea 5 oz. clear jars.
Then began the work of checking expiration dates, washing and drying the jars, creating labels and filling up the jars.
I used my trusty Dynmo Label Maker with clear tape to make the labels.
Two jars fit perfectly back to back on the rack for a total of 10 spice jars per each row on the rack.
I have a total of 44 spice jars. Both racks were completely full of spices prior to putting all of the spices in the 5 oz. jars. Now I have almost 4 rows on the rack that I can use to organize other items that are currently in the pantry. Items such as extracts and baking essentials.
Any leftover spices have been stored in this pretty basket and placed in the pantry.
I used a small notebook to keep an inventory of the spices and their expiration dates.
