OR.GA.NIZE! #1 Spice Labels

Spice Label Organization

I get very grouchy when the house is a mess, or when there is dust on the floor, or when I can't find something I need...
You know what I mean?
I want it to CHANGE!

So on my quest to be organized, I started a new Pinterest board where I am pinning all the smart, interesting, space-saving, and crafty ideas/projects which will help me fulfill my goal.
And I'm going to share my progress with you!
This means every time I do something from that Pinterest board and it was a success, I will post it here! This series will be called OR.GA.NIZE! Today, I present you with #1. I'm so excited!

Do you, too, have a shelf with spices bunged together in a manner that makes the spice you need UNFINDABLE?
That WAS the case for me. Not anymore! 
This project doesn't cost anything. And most importantly,  it doesn't eat up your whole day! The only tools you'll need are scissors, glue, and a printer.
Here's what I did:


  1.     Empty a drawer in your kitchen, and organize everything that was in that drawer into two piles: STUFF TO THROW OUT and STUFF TO PUT ON THE EMPTY SHELF (this helps you get rid of a bunch of unnecessary stuff kicking around!). What empty shelf? The shelf which is currently holding all your spices! Now that your drawer is empty, place all your spices in it, and organize what was in your drawer onto your shelf.
  2.     Now, label all the lids of those spices. Otherwise, it will be hell to recognize them! Click HERE for free printable labels. Cut them out and glue them onto your lids!

I had to modify a bunch of the labels, as you can see, but they're still super cute!
Tell me what you think! 


  1. this is a really good idea!

    i really need to organize my stuff, especially my draws and cupboards - i have a labelmaker but just havent gotten round to using it, which is annoying.

    great post!


  2. That's a great idea! I've never thought of keeping spices upright in a drawer. I have them on a shelf and they are always disorganized. About once every 3 years I alphbetize them, but within a couple weeks they are out of order again.

  3. cute post (: :)
    I need to learn to take good photos like you (:

  4. ohh this is such a good idea! It makes things really organized and it doesn't look too hard!
