Spice Love

I have a new love for my spice cabinet.  It used to be one of those doors you opened and had to pull out half of the jars just to find the one you wanted.  Or on more than one occasion the toothpick jar would fall out as we were shuffling through it and add an extra element of 52 pick up.  Not so much fun.  I am sure that a few of you can agree with me you have been there before.

Okay don't scream, try not to look away but here is the before. 

Pretty scary, how does a person function with this mess.

I hit up the local dollar store and found some great options for organizing this mess. 

So Much Better

I picked up this great three tear rack at our local Canadian Tire store on sale for $3.00 and then I found these spice jars at the dollar store 3 for $1.00.  These cute labels were made on my photoshop program and then printed on sticker labels. 

I also grabbed these bins from the dollar store for $1.50 each to put all the extra baking and spices in.  This way I can just grab the entire bin down and have easy access to all my goodies. 

This is way better and I love opening up the door now and seeing how cute and organized it is.  

This gives me hope that one day my pantry can look this good.

this looks so good - i need to get motivated to clean out my spice cabinet too. It is out of control right now and I can never find what I am looking for :)
