If you cook, bake, or both, a spice cabinet or drawer is a necessity. Simple spice cabinet or drawer organization is not only helpful, it’s more enjoyable to cook and bake when you can easily find your herbs and spices. I gave my spice cabinet a little reorganization and thought you might like to see what I did.
There’s a Spice Cabinet Organizing printable included in the *new* and intro-priced Guide to Kitchens – find it here in the shop.
I was noticing that our spice cabinet was feeling crowded and not as workable as I needed it to be. I did a little measuring to see if I could find slightly larger turntables and tiered organizers to make this space work better. Here’s the before:
Once I found tiered organizers and turntables I took everything out, cleaned the shelves and realized that I needed to move the first shelf up to accommodate the tiered organizers.
Then I split everything up into categories:
Take a couple of minutes to take inventory of what you have and what you need.
Follow these steps:
- Quick declutter
- Wipe down area
- Sort by type of spice
- Arrange in a way that makes sense for how you use spices
- Assess and make any needed adjustments
I put the spices back in categories – I love how everything fits on the these shelves – it makes it easier to see everything.
I use the turntables for baking items – baking soda, baking powder, corn starch, muffin cups, toothpicks on the left turntable and baking spices on the right.
Here’s a close-up of the glass jars for those baking supplies. I’ve used lots of different types of jars over the years and have landed on these Le Parfait jars – I love the short, squat shape of them for baking goods. I used the Acacia turntables and risers from Neat Method – you can find them here.
