I don't know about you, but I love organization and my spices were far from organized. They were spread out over three different cabinets and I never knew what I had. I found myself buying duplicates of certain spices just because I didn't even know I already had them. So, when I started organizing the cabinets to make sure everything was baby proofed I thought why not get my spices in line too. I found this great tutorial on iheartorganizing and pretty much copied it.
I could have sworn I took some step by step pictures, but they have gone missing. Thankfully this is pretty easy.
Start with some ball jars. I used 4 oz ball jars for the smaller storage and the 8 oz ball jars for the larger storage.
I ordered mine online from Walmart and picked them up in store. It saves on the shipping and saves you from having to walk around Walmart hunting them down.
Then, just take the lids off and separate the rim from the lid. I sprayed the rim (not sure what it's actually called) with Rustoleum Seaside Green. I had it leftover from my bathroom mirror makeover. Then, I just painted the lids with some chalkboard paint I had leftover from other projects. I used the brush on kind because that's what I had, but spraying them with chalkboard paint would be way easier.
Then, I just used a chalk marker to label the spices. That way if I need to change things up I can just wipe it off and start fresh. I also used a chalk marker to write the expiration date on the bottom of the jar that way I can make sure things stay fresh. Then, I can just wipe the chalk marker off and change the date when I add new spices. I just lined the drawer with some wrapping paper I picked up at Homegoods for $2. I did adhere it to some posterboard first so it wouldn't be too flimsy. On a side note, Homegoods has the best wrapping paper lately and you can't beat the price!
