How To Organize Your Spice Cabinet

The last few months I have KonMari many parts of my home. If you don’t know what it is here is a link to Marie Kondo who developed the method. It’s basically organizing your home in specific categories. Getting rid of items you don’t need and only using what you want. For the spice category I had all my spices everywhere and half of them were not being used.

Supplies Needed For KonMari

  • Spice bottles: Found these cute jars on Amazon
  • Larger Jars: Dollar Store has a bunch of large jars perfect for baking ingredients.
  • White marker: These are great for writing on glass jars.

Step 2:

Wash your spice jars, dry them well. You don’t want water to mix with the spices.

Step 3:

Fill the jars with the spice. This is a great way to rid of hard spices that are old and empty spice containers with only a few sprinkles left.

Step 4:

With a white magic marker you can write the name of the spice on the glass. For the larger jars I wrote it on top of the silver lids.

Step 5:

I put all the jars of spice in alphabetic order.

As you can see the spices are where everyone can see them and the beauty of having them in a jar, you can use use your fingers to sprinkle on your food. It’s a secret of good chefs when it comes to flavoring their food.

The first shelf has all my new spices, the second shelf I placed all the baking ingredients like flour into larger jars and the third shelf is unused spices and baking ingredients to fill the jars up.

  1. I love to keep my spices just as organized. Thank you for sharing your tips. I shared to my pinterest board.

  2. Love how organized this is Maria! We did a drawer a few years ago and it’s a mess again; time to Spring clean it!

  3. I am not sure if I am more amazed at how well they are organised or how many spices you have. lol I have maybe 5 in total.

  4. What a great idea! I love the jars. They are just the tight size without taking up too much space. Thanks for all the tips, Maria.

  5. Sadly our spice drawer is a hot mess at the moment. We bought one of those drawer insert thingies without checking first if it could accommodate different-sized spice bottles. Needless to say, now we just chuck everything in the drawer and hope it will close properly. Your idea of using little glass would be perfect to sort things out. I’ll probably put the label on the lid too, just to make it easier to see.

  6. I have always though an organized spice cabinet makes meal prep so much quicker! There is nothing worse than spending extra time searching through the cupboards for the spice you need in the middle of a recipe! I love the riser and those cute spice jars!

  7. Shared to PInterest adn bought a white sharpie! Glad to know thie labels weren’t stick on or make it yourself! LOL.
