Over the past 30 or so years of cooking for myself, I've collected quite a mess of spices and spice jars. Today I picked up some dill and paprika from Abby's Spice and Tea Store and when I got home I was frustrated by how difficult it was to find the jar I was looking for. Quite frankly, I was embarrassed by the sloppy collection I've amassed. It's a shameful way for a Virgo to behave.
Of course this is tongue in cheek, but I am in home organization mode these days, so it's the perfect time to do some culling, while trying to come up with a thrifty and creative way to make my spices accessible and fresh. Thanks to Pinterest I have a few different ideas bobbing around in my brain.
Think of these as the before shots and I'll look forward to sharing my results with you.
