Spiced Up!

I had good intentions when I put all of our spices in a tupperware container however our collection quickly outgrew that leaving us with packets everywhere! Often the one you needed was hidden behind a jar of something and it wasn't until you purchased a new bag that it would reappear. We set out to find a lo-cost solution to this problem. Off to the dollar store we went and found these fantastic glass mason style jars for only a dollar each! Perfect! Once all the jars were filled I hused a 2" circle cutter to make labels for the top. I cant' tell you how much more fun it is to cook when all your spices are well organized! I hope this helps those of you with the same problem we had!

Ah, organization. Happy sighs. I have a few of the magnetic metal holders, a wonderful gift from a friend. I keep meaning to pick a few more as my own tupperware/packets are over flowing!

I "happy sigh" every time I open my cupboard now :) Those magnetic metal holders would also work great. Kitchen organization makes me so happy!
