Spice Rack Organization DIY

Spice Rack Organization DIY - roomfortuesday.comI realize this post may or may not be all that exciting to some of you, but for my fellow type-A personalities out there… I promised to share the links for my spice rack organization DIY. I’ve received a bunch of messages about the jars, the label maker, and the spice drawer inserts themselves- so I’m breaking it all down in this post! Click through to read about how these two drawers in my kitchen are making me super happy.

I ordered five boxes of spice jars. There are 12 jars per box. This completely filled both drawers and fit all of our spices and seasonings perfectly!

Spice Rack Organization DIY - roomfortuesday.comStep 1 // Wash the jars. I started by washing each jar. I let them dry completely before beginning the filling process.

Spice Rack Organization DIY - roomfortuesday.comStep 2 // Label the jars. Using the label maker and your preferred tape color, label each jar.

Spice Rack Organization DIY - roomfortuesday.comStep 3 // Fill each jar. Using the funnel, fill each jar with the specified spices or seasonings.

Spice Rack Organization DIY - roomfortuesday.comOnce your jars are filled, pop on the plastic top, then screw on the lid. I like that these jars came with lids for sprinkling. Some of my spices needed this, while others were ok without it.

Spice Rack Organization DIY - roomfortuesday.comI love how these turned out! Not only are they neatly organized and easy-to-read, but the aesthetic is so much less chaotic. I’m able to find exactly what I need based on the color & texture of the spice, as well as the label… without the packaging and marketing getting in my way. I’ll probably end up alphabetically organizing them as well- I just didn’t have time before sharing this blog post. Please tell me there are other people out there who do this sort of thing! I have no idea why this brings me so much joy. Ha!

I also used my label maker for the DIY sugar scrubs I shared last week. That thing is coming is so handy lately!

  1. Aaaahhh. *Blood pressure drops* I love how neat everything looks with consistent labeling. (Although, truth be told, I prefer the uber-clean look of no labels!) I remember using a labeler when I was a kid where you manually turned a letter dial and pressed really hard to emboss the thick, plastic label tape. Pretty sure I was super jealous of my friend who owned it! That technology has come a long way.
    I bet you smile every time you reach for the cayenne!

    1. Haha, same!! It’s so much less chaotic. I had one of those label makers and had the best time labeling EVERYTHING :)

    Alphabetically organization saves my sanity! I have the Ikea spice trays so the channel runs from back to front. I think I’d totally prefer you side to side version. It all looks great.

    1. Thank you! I definitely need to take the time to alphabetize them. Maybe I can squeeze that in this weekend!

  3. This is very pleasing indeed! I would vacillate terribly with the alphabetising – herbs in one drawer and spices in the other and then in alphabetical order or combined overall?! 🤷🏻‍♀️ Sixty jars, though! – that is some selection! The only thing that I would be concerned about would be whether I could get through them all before staling set in – I suppose that this would prompt me to cook as wide a variety of dishes as possible though!

    1. Thanks Sally! I like your style… I should split them up and make it even more organized. Haha! You’re speaking my language.

    OMG!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I would actually love to see more of these type of posts!! I am a total organisation junky! And visual clutter, I HATE IT!! Unfortunately we live in Namibia (South West Africa) and to buy stuff from Amazon or any other place in the world just kills us in transport costs… So I must live through you and Erin from Sunny Side Up blog and dream of the stuff I could do to my place!!!

    1. Thank you!! I’m all about organizing :) ha! xo

  5. How do you know when it’s expired? I recently found out spices don’t last as long as i thought! Poor sumac that was used twice in two years

    1. When I refill the spices (depending on the spice), I’ll just use a dry erase marker and write the date on the bottom of the jar.
