My spice cabinet organizing has been lacking. It is one of those spaces in my home that gets used everyday. It’s also one of those spaces where I keep saying that needs organizing but for some reason it never happens. It’s easy to put it off because once I’m done cooking I just close the door. That seems to be a bad habit in disorganized spaces for me and I would bet for you as well. The ole “out of sight out of mind” mentality is cause for many disorganized cabinets, rooms, closets, etc. You get the point.
SO…my spices were all stuffed in this small cabinet and I could never see what I needed. I would have to remove almost everything every time I cooked. Not so fun or productive. This is what it looked like before I added the shelf.
This shelf was the perfect size for my cabinet. At first I was afraid it was going to be a bit too wide but turns out it worked just right.
The next part is so simple it is still ridiculous as to how long I’ve waited to get it done. I’m serious when I say it was only $5 and10 minutes for this spice cabinet organizing! I emptied the cabinet out and tossed anything that was expired and combined any doubles. YES! Doubles! That’s what happens when you can’t see everything or remember what you have.
So after all of my hard work (insert sarcasm) this is how nice and neat everything looked.
My husband has been helping with some of the cooking and he was a little happy about this! Do you have any place in your home that you could organize in 30 minutes or less and it would make a big difference in you day? If you can think of one spot, I challenge you to JUST DO IT! Take that 30 minutes and do something for yourself that you will be so happy about later.
If you haven’t already done so, I’d love for you to join my At Home with The Barkers Facebook page.
