One of the things I’ve been meaning to tackle for awhile is organizing my spice drawer. About two years ago, I emptied all my mis-matched spice containers into 4.5 ounce glass containers (from Crate & Barrel) and affixed clear labels to them. You can see the original post, from July 2010, here. (Wow, one of my first posts- so funny to look back!). My spices were prettily displayed on my countertop on a lazy susan and we were getting along very well.
Until I wanted to clear my counter space, and relocated the spice jars to the top drawer near our stove. Problem was, I couldn’t see what the spices were without picking them up. Kind of a problem. I saw Martha Stewart’s new line of organizational items at Staples over the weekend and picked up some labels. The small round labels I used for the spice jars fit perfectly, and although it’s hard to tell in my photos, they have an aqua border on them.
