Since moving into our house a year ago I have rearranged the kitchen 3, maybe even more, times. This isn’t a normal thing for me, I promise, but when we moved in there was an extra wall with cabinets, that we ended up knocking down, and then we took down a large wall cabinet, and the changes just keep coming. Through all of these changes my spices have been moved a few times but I’ve always wanted to have a spice drawer, right next to the stovetop, so that’s where they ended up. It’s a long, narrow drawer but it’s a spice drawer and I’m excited about it! Today I’m going to show you how I organized my spices in my little drawer.
Here’s how I had them in there before. They were organized but not pretty and organized, which is always my goal. 🙂
When I was at IKEA a couple weeks ago I picked up these glass spice jars to make my spice drawer a little prettier.
Next I pulled out each of the spice containers and emptied them into the new glass containers.
Then I labeled each of the jars with my label maker. I don’t use my label maker that often but when I do I am so thankful for it! It makes projects like these so easy!
Once all the spices had been transferred and labeled, I put them back in the drawer, in alphabetical order (of course!) from bottom to top.
I love that I can see all the spices now, I think spices are so colorful and pretty! If you didn’t want to have them leaning up like this you could also shift them to look like this.
The labels are still easy to see and the spices are still pretty. I’m curious, do you have a spice cabinet or a spice drawer? I don’t know why but it always intrigues me to see how people organize the spices in their kitchens (yes, I know I’m super weird). 🙂
