An Organized Spice Cabinet

I am still slowly but surely working to become more organized around here.  It is a never ending process.  Once I think I have the right method down, I find something better.  Oh well.  As long as we are improving, right??

Yesterday, I tackled a couple projects.  The first one I thought I would share with you is my spice cabinet.  I wish I had taken a before picture.  The bottom shelf was already pretty organized, but I had added A LOT more spices and they were all in a big mess on the second shelf.  And some in front of everything on the first shelf.  It wasn’t real pretty and was getting hard to find things in there.

Now it looks nice.  🙂  Here is the first shelf –


Did you notice they are in alphabetical order too?  🙂

Here is the second shelf –


Notice all my McCormicks seasonings above?  Eric thought I was nuts for buying so many, but we use LOTS of seasonings and they were on sale for $1 each.  How could I resist??  They are good too!

Let’s take a closer look at my organizational awesomeness.  ha! ha!SB1_8524

Here is the whole cabinet in all it’s glory.


I have to admit though, it isn’t finished.  You see… I really want to buy some empty spice jars to replace all of those ugly red/white Kroger can spice containers.  They take up so much room.  I can’t resist buying them though because they are a lot cheaper than the jarred ones.

We have been trying out lots of new recipes lately, hence the addition of many new spices, so I will be posting my review of those soon!
