Organized Spice Drawer~

I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend.  We were happy to be able to spend some time with our girls.  On Saturday, we spent the day at the gym where my youngest used to play volleyball.  Gosh, we logged a lot of hours there back in the day.  It was fun meeting up with old friends, coaches, and seeing the girls my daughter coached.  They were 12 and under when she coached.  Now they are 16 and up, and some have signed to play in college! Say what?!!!

I shared with you our organized pantry last week.  In that post I mentioned that we store our extra spices in the door rack, but that the ones we use daily are in a specified drawer near where we prep our meals.  So, I thought I would show you that today.

Having them in clear jars (from the Container Store) and clearly labeled makes finding what we need super easy.  I love the clear jars because I can see if we are running low on something. I can then either fill it from our "extras" in the pantry or add it to our grocery list for the week to restock.  The labels are from the Martha Stewart line for Avery, sold at Staples.  I do not think they are carrying this line anymore, but you can find similar at most office stores.



Today is hubby's birthday, and despite my having a horrible cold and sore throat,  we are going to try and make the best of it.  At least I can prepare his favorite dish for dinner, Chicken Piccata.  Will share the recipe later in the week.

Linking up with Stacie and the girls for THOUGHTS OF HOME THURSDAY.

Did you get the drawer divider at the Containter Store too? I love that store. I could spend hours there. I like clear glass bottles for spices too. I get mine at Pensey's Spices. They have such a variety and they come in all different sizes.

Michelle said...

Oops. I meant Penzey's spices. Just in case.
