I immediately searched Etsy and Ebay to find some reasonably priced baby food jars. Unfortunately, Blair and I are not quite at that stage in our lives yet. I found some on Ebay and waited patiently for them to be delivered. I went to my local Home Depot and bought some chalkboard paint, and spent part of one weekend painting the lids. Once they were dry, I went to work cleaning out my spice cabinet. It was a great thing to do since some of my spices had been expired for quite some time. After I dumped each one in its new home, I labeled it with chalk. In the house, I plan to store them in a drawer, and alphabetize them. No more digging for me! How do you organize your spices? Have I inspired you to try this at home?
PS I promise to take pictures of them in a drawer once we are settled in (fingers crossed)
What you’ll do:
Make sure your jars are sterilized and that the labels are completely off. Remove all the lids from the jars and set down some newspaper for your work space. With a small paintbrush, paint each individual lid and allow to dry. Repeat with a second jar and allow to dry completely. I waiting about a half hour in between the first and second coats. Using chalk, label the lid with the corresponding spice. A funnel makes the job of transferring a little bit easier. Enjoy a nice organized spice drawer!
