Hello Dear Friends,
I am working through fun projects today!! OK…sometimes they are “work” but the end is wonderful!!
Here are a few pictures of my before and after. I pray it encourages you!!! 😉
My new spice drawer is amazingly beautiful!!! And as I finish this project up…I find myself jumping to the next portion of the kitchen!! 😉 Sooooo all this to say, it is contagious!! 😉 And I am excited to find see all that will be done in the next, hmmmmm….year! Yes…that is what my wonderful Project Planner is for!! As I work through these projects and see new projects…I just schedule them into my Project Planner!! LOVE this tool!!! 😉
Enjoy the pics and I pray they encourage you!! 😉
PS-So sorry Dear Friends to not post until today. Technical difficulties in downloading my pictures. Today…PTL, all is working just fine!! 😉 Have a wonderful day in the Lord!!
All the spices pulled from the spinning cart on the counter, cupboard and pantry.
Time to consolidate and create uniformity.
OK…if you do not have a label maker…save your money and get one. I LOVE mine and use it nonstop!!
I bought mine at Sam’s with their discount coupon. I am amazed how little mine cost compared to the “regular” store purchase.
So shop around…it’s worth it!! 😉
I then made labels for each spice with my handy dandy labeler. 🙂
A good helpful hint, print many labels at once. You always have a little feed at the beginning and at the end of each print and I want to save as much label material as possible!! 😉
OK, I can be a little cheap…but hey, it saves money!! 😉
I LOVE bulk spices at Whole foods…
so I was just making sure to have all in glass jars with their labels.
Not a bad choice to begin my cooking collection.
Some of my jars from my store bought spinning spice rack.
It was fun and easy…but not enough storage for each spice.
Plus I LOVE my Whole Food spices!!
After the drawer is cleaned out, I did a test label and spice jar load.
I then took all my clean half pint canning jars with my favorite white lids (Walmart is a great place for these lids…much, much cheaper!!) and did a trial run to see what would fit and how all fit best.
FYI: You can sometimes find these jars being cleaned out at Goodwill, Craigslist or even garage sales. They sometimes can even be found in the box unopened. I found mine at my local grocer at a great price with an amazing $2.00 off coupon!! WOW!! The Lord is so good!! 🙂
Make note, I had to turn the jars every other jar in order to fit all in and maximize the space.
I was getting excited at this point…I was starting to “see the light”!!!! 🙂
I absolutely LOVE how this looks and how much I can store!!! If you even look closely, I added both of my dark poppy seeds and light poppy seeds…ok a little artsy tartsy…but they look beautiful!! So many colors and easy peasy access!!! PTL!!!
Thank you so much Anitra at SimplyLivingSmart.com!!
I LOVE her great organizing ideas!!
I also LOVE having more counter space and all in one spot for easy use!!
Like I said earlier…I feel a good clear out coming for the rest of the drawers…all is cleaned and now just ready for a good clear out and Mommy organizer!! 😉
I pray this encourages you today!!
