Am I ridiculous for getting excited about organizing my spices? Sad, I know:) Before my little spice-organization project, my spice jars were a mismatched jumble. I had been wanting to organize them and make them prettier for some time, and when I read how SmittenKitchen organized her spices here, I was inspired.
Here’s what my confused spices looked like BEFORE.
And here they are AFTER.
I used the 4.5 ounce sealable glass jars, which are perfect for fitting your whole tablespoon into. I washed and dried the jars, then went through my spices to make sure they were still good. It was also interesting to see which spices I have that I’ve never even opened. (Hello 5 Spice Powder, nice to meet you! But me and cinnamon are tight- love you in my oatmeal in the morning!) After making labels with my printer (Font: Bradley Hand ITC), I attached them to each jar. Like SmittenKitchen points out, there are tiny air bubbles in the labels, but it really doesn’t bother me.
I put the jars on a lazy susan so that I could rotate them for easy locating of specific spices, and, of course arranged them in rainbow order:) Makes me want to cook something!
