My family and I have become a little obsessed with spice organization. Mostly because the cupboard where I keep my spices is such a jumbled mess! None of us can find anything! It used to be pretty neat when it was just me cooking. But now that my husband and daughter cook – well what can I say. The price for not having to cook every meal…
Plus I use very little salt so I think I have every Mrs. Dash spice jar there is! These are the original 1960′s cabinets. This cabinet is only 13 inches wide and the shelves don’t move. There’s nothing I can do about the amount of space I have for spice storage (this is the most convenient cabinet) What to do, what to do?
I think I’ve looked at every post ever written by people who have re-organized their spice cabinets in search of the answer to how to make mine easier to use. I’m going to share a few favorites with you today and hopefully next week I’ll be able to show you my nice reorganized spice cabinet!

Hope you’re inspired to get your spices organized. I am! Hopefully, I’ll be able to work on it this week since I’m done painting my kitchen (now I want to organize it)!
