With so much building work and chaos around our house, it’s more important than ever to stay organised and tidy where we can. Often it’s the little things that you take for granted and almost don’t notice in day to day life, but it’s exactly those little things that tend to make your life easier.
Anything that makes life easier has got to be a good thing, right? So when we were invited to take part in the Spring Clearing Hack challenge by Space Station we of course jumped at the chance!
We’re always looking for ways to make our day to day life easier and saving time on the small things just leaves more time to take our house to pieces!
One of the areas in our home that can always be improved upon is the kitchen. Let’s face it, it’s a mess. The cupboards are falling off the walls, it’s weirdly laid out and there just isn’t enough storage. Anything that can improve the way we use our kitchen has got ot be a good thing and our newest addition – super organised spice jars – will hopefully help us do just that!
Our previous magnetic ones that were stuck to the side of the fridge worked well enough for a while but the more spices we got, the more difficult they became to keep track of.
The label was stuck to the back of the spice pot and whilst we could kind of guess what the spice was that we were picking up, we did sometimes end up looking at 5 jars before we actually found the one we were looking for. Some of the lids also got jammed onto the tin and I ended up punching holes into the tops (and broke a knife in the process) trying to get the spices out.
Now our spice collection is much more streamlined, easier to access and most importantly it’s much easier to find what we were looking for!
If you’d like to make your own periodic table inspired spice jars, this is what you’ll need:
- Spice Jars (We used Kilner 70ml jars)
- Free spice jar label printable which you can download here
- Scissors & tape
To make them, all you have to do is print the free spice jar label template onto some paper – we used smooth, heavy cardstock – and cut out the circles.
Then using some double sided tape or some glue, just stick them to your spice jars.
Organizing your home doesn’t have to be complicated or super time consuming. Start with the little things, they soon add up and a tick of your to-do list has always got to be a good thing!
Finding things in our kitchen can sometimes be a bit of a challenge, but at least it’s super easy to find exactly what spice we want in seconds.
How do you keep your spices organised? Do you have any tips on how to keep your house organised?
