Have you ever seen those perfect pantries, with perfectly organized spice labels on Pinterest and been super jealous? Well, I’m here to tell you that it is SO easy to get that Pinterest-worthy spice label organization. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing a ton of kitchen organization ideas as part of my kitchen organization series! This week’s big project was the spice jars in the pantry.
Before this project, my pantry was a total disaster and I had a bunch of duplicate spices lying around. I can’t tell you HOW many times I purchased another spice jar from the store because I thought I had run out. This project will make such a big difference in your daily life, and it’s pretty to look at. Win, win. First, I grabbed all of the spices I could find and took them up to my office to be re-organized! I already had this spice rack from Amazon* and tons of sticker paper* left over from other DIY projects. I designed and printed these labels on glossy sticker paper. You can download the labels by clicking here!
Next, I printed three sets of labels. Two sets of small labels, and one set of the large. Then, I used the small set for the front of the containers, and the larger for the top. I love the larger labels at the top because it makes it much easier to see what’s hiding in the back of the spice rack.
Finally, I used one set of small labels to label the “extras.” My plan is to keep all of my extra spices in this box to refill my jars as needed. That way when I run out I can take the container and buy more! My local market allows you to bring your own container to buy spices which are not only the cheaper option but better for the environment since we will be eliminating the excess plastic bottles. Overall, this DIY was really simple and inexpensive. It has made cooking so much easier since I can quickly see what spices I have and grab them.
Note: I purchased the jars from Target for $13 for 20 jars. Unfortunately, they aren’t currently being sold at Bullseye’s Playground. I highly recommend these spice jars from Amazon:
