I've been on a roll lately trying to get my home more organized (thanks Home Edit) and my latest focus has been on my spice rack.
I love love love cooking, trying new recipes and new flavors but over the years I've accumulated a ridiculous amount of spices (whoops!). Last week I finally took the time and started organizing my spice rack and am in love with how it came out! The project was a lot quicker than I thought it would be and I was able to do it in pieces so it didn't cost a crazy amount.

Using a Spice Rack
I keep my spices in a cabinet that's a little higher up so I wanted a spice rack that could be pulled down so I could more easily see the spices I wanted to use. I bought this one a few years ago and have been impressed with it. It's durable and has enough space to hold almost all of my spices.
The #1 thing that bugged me about my spices was the different sizes of the bottles. I had mini spice containers, huge circular ones, and some glass ones. I bought this set of medium glass spice jars off Amazon and poured my spices in. This instantly made a huge difference and made my spices look more organized!
I liked this set also came with a little funnel so pouring the spices in didn't make a mess, and it came with some basic spice labels.
If you want to save money you could also repurpose old jars to use. I've heard baby jars work really great as spice jars!
I really like the minimalistic white label trend I've been seeing on Instagram so bought these labels on Etsy. I ordered the 40 pack of 1.25" squares and they fit on the spice jars perfectly! The stickers were also very forgiving (super helpful!) If I stuck one on a little crooked, I was able to redo it without ruining the sticker.
I'm really happy with how this project came out! I want to do something with the smaller jar spices in the future but haven't decided exactly what just yet.
- Spice Jars
- Soap and Water
- Wash the spice jars with soap and water and let dry completely.
- Using a funnel, pour the spices into the spice jars. Close with lid.
- Lay the spice jar on a flat surface and apply the sticker - I found to keep them symmetrical it helped to line the jars next to each other.
- Repeat for all remaining jars.
