I am not particularly fond of house chores but I find very difficult to live in a messy and disorganised flat. Therefore, I try to do the best I can in the minimum amount of time possible.
The spices cabinet is a long-standing messy place. This is what it used to look: messy! I couldn’t find anything in there and had to open 3-4 boxes each time I had to use cilantro.
If you can tell the difference between oregano and thyme just by looking at it, chapeau, for the rest of us, some labels will give a helping hand. So, here is how how you can sort out your spices in three simple steps (I got this idea from Martha Stewart)
Download the Martha Stewart template. You can find the PDF file here. There are three variations but chose to print the round labels with individual spice names
Print out the labels using a thick paper, not the common A4 used for documents, but a paper that can take some wear and tear. Cut out the shapes
I placed the jars on a tray so that I can easily take all out all spices at once and quickly find the one I am looking for or prepare all the spices I need to cooking. I put my jars everything on an plastic tray from IKEA
and here is the result:
Much more manageable than before and it looks nice too.
