Taking inspiration from http://gracefulorder.com/2014/02/13/organizing-spices/ I decided to do our spice cupboard too.
I threw out all the expired spices.
I put all the bagged spices into jars (reused spice jars, jam jars, etc).
I put labels at the top of tall jars so I could line up medium sized jars in front of them and still see the labels on all the jars.
I taped an empty soup mix box shut and put it at the back of the shelf to lift up some of the jars then put more jars in front.
I inverted a $0.99 slender basket for the pencils in the junk drawer and lined up the smaller spice jars on an angle so I could read the labels from the stove.
Hubby likes spice rubs and such for his meats so I put all those packets and jars in a very sturdy cardboard box that one of the kids’ tablets came in. I put it beside the stove so he’d see all the mixes he got as gifts and use them.
