How to Organize Your Spices in a Very Functional Way

Posted on in Around the House/ DIY

I don’t know about you but our spices game is completely off point. Well, it was. I decided enough was enough. I got so tired of our “spice cupboard” being overrun with packages of half full spices I needed to change it up. On a recent trip to the dollar tree I found these containers that are magnetic. I thought they’d make the perfect little jars for spices and just stick them right to the side of our fridge!I wanted to do something fun with them though so of course I pulled out my paint and decided to do a paint brush stroke on each and then label them so we know what they are! I do have a label maker I have had for a few years but it’s packed, has been since we moved and I just didn’t feel like digging it out, plus how cute did they turn out? They are so simple the fact you buy the containers already magnetized makes this so much easier.

Materials Needed:

  • Magnetic Containers from Dollar Tree ($1.00ea in the US and $1.25ea in Canada!)
  • Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Sharpie
  • Spices
  • Fridge

The instructions? You don’t even need them. They are self explanatory. No need for me to tell you the obvious. But if you are looking for a functional way to organize your spices, and are like me with a cupboard that is overrun with random half bags of them then this is something you can do!Although I don’t find myself in the kitchen as often as I used to be I like having things where I can find them. My husband is the one who is always in the kitchen and he puts things in high places, or at the back where I can’t find them so having the spices where I can get to them easily when I need them is something I am thrilled about now!

How do you organize your spices? Could you use this little easy functional way to organize yours?

    This is so cool! No more fumbling through the dreaded spice cupboard to find a particular spice. Conveniently located on your fridge is a great idea!

    With the kick-off of bbq season, I find this hack to be a god-send! Now, I’ll have all of my spices conveniently located nearby for when I grill.

    I love that! I’ll have to give this a try. My current spice situation is an exercise in scavenger hunting.

    I have to try this! My spice situation can best be described as, “There appears to have been a struggle.” I usually just have to keep grabbing until I find the one I need.

    I like this idea. Very unique and different. I’m always misplacing my spices or they get pushed back in the cabinet too far.

    What a great idea!! Such a space savor and they look great on the fridge!

    This is an excellent idea! We currently have a cabinet filled with spices, but can only see a few containers in the front. A total mess! This solution would help.

    Mine are a big ol mess in a cupboard. Being able to access them easily and still keep my kitchen looking clutter-free is a big win in my book!

    This is such a cute idea for storing spices! I definitely need to find a storage solution for mine because they’re all in a rubbermaid container right now.
