Herbing Up – Spice Jar Organization

This Spring my friend Sharon gave me 2 spice racks she was no longer using just about the time I was ready to organize my spice cupboard!  I love how clean and neat they look.  They can stand on a counter top but I decided they’d be perfect on the inside of the cupboard door.  Removing all the spice jars and spice tins from the shelves would make room for other things and less crowded cupboards are easier to maintain.

First I tried my old spice bottles and tins in the rack.

Even though the jars fit they were hard to get out.  I had a few simple jars from Cost Plus that fit perfectly so decided to go get 10 more at only .99 a piece.

Then made some labels for the jars.

Next got out the hammer and drill and made some holes and fastened the racks to the inside of the cupboard.  Thankfully I didn’t have to redo any in which I’m not always so lucky. 😮 (By the way, I recommend buying your own in-house hammer and drill so you don’t have to wait for your husband or a handyman to do simple the jobs – no waiting for them to have time or no arguing over which way to do it!)

Love the new clean look

Took awhile to get used to opening the cupboard with the racks on the other side.  But love the new clean look!  Thank you Sharon! :-)
