How to Organize Your Spice Cabinet.
My family and I have become a little obsessed with getting our spice cabinet organized. 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! So I went looking for organizing tips, and decided to share with you all the clever Spice Cupboard Organization ideas I found!

Below are the original 1960’s cabinets in my kitchen. 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!
