Organize the spice cupboard

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).

Top Shelf:
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.

Middle Shelf:
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.

Bottom Shelf:
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.

Spice Mixes
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.
