Dollar Store Spice Organization and Printable Labels

If you ever visit our house for a random summer cookout or Friday night hangout or whatever kind of shindig we usually have happening around here, you might think we are super duper hyper organized. Oh contraire, friend.

We might ask you to hang your jackets on the hallway hooks because you do not want to open any coat closets around here. You might be greeted with an avalanche. If we shove stuff behind closed doors, the clutter doesn’t exist, right? That’s what I tell myself.

Okay, it’s not that bad. But we’re definitely far from perfect. After all of the kitchen projects lately, the insides of our cabinets needed some lovin’.

Our spice cabinet was so lack luster, I couldn’t even manage a non-fuzzy before shot. I hit up the dollar store pretty much any time I get in the mood to organize, so I snagged a 24 count box of glass spice jars and started purging the crazy cabinet.

I ran the jars through the dishwasher first and then discovered the plastic tops apparently had silver paint on them before because they came out completely black afterwards. Oops. Well, they were a dollar.

I put a little uncooked rice in the bottles to dry out any leftover moisture before filling them with spices.

For the labels, I made some simple printables and placed them right over top of where the dollar store stickers were. You can download them yourself here if you’d like a set too:

After clearing out a junk drawer that was long overdue for a cleaning (hey, I warned you… far from perfect), I extended a couple of tension rods to use as separators.

Then filled ’em on up with the spices after going through all of the random bottles crammed into the spice cabinet.

I spaced out all of the new spice jars on the tension rods in a drawer right next to the stove, so I can grab whatever I need in a hurry while I’m cooking.

And I put in all of my measuring cups and spoons to make things easy too.

I still left some of the items in the spice cabinet like the salt canister and baking extracts and seasoning packets, but the spice bottle chaos is finally gone.

I never knew a spice drawer could make me this happy! Maybe I could get started on that coat closet, but eh… I still have until fall to worry about that though, right?

  1. Love your tips and tricks for organizing the spices! And like Tiffani, I would so be looking at the spice drawer several times through the day, amazed at how super organized it looks! It might even encourage me to whip up a gourmet meal! Thanks for posting Lauren!

    1. Haha! Like I told her, I just keep peeking in at that drawer to stare at it. Maybe it’ll actually stay this organized for a while. Hopefully, anyway. 🙂

  2. Lauren, its fantastic! The tension rods are genius, and to be honest, I love the harmony of the black lids with the dark hardware when the drawer is open, so I think that worked in your favor! (I’m OCD like that….) You are so clever. Great job.

    1. Thank you, Lisa! I’m glad the dishwasher removed that silver paint from those lids. They probably would have started looking pretty cruddy over time with that paint rubbing off anyway. Why didn’t they just make them black in the first place?!

  3. Your “before” is almost identical to what I face each time I cook, right down to the lazy Susan! And tension rods! What an ingenious way to corral all those bottles and keep the spice drawer neat. Great job!

    1. Thanks, Trudy! I got soooo sick of digging through that cabinet searching for what I needed every time I cooked dinner. Finally had enough! That lazy Susan didn’t help one bit.

  4. Love it! That is one of those ones that you keep going in the kitchen and opening the drawer to look at it! (maybe that’s just me….hee hee)
