Labeling Spice Jars

During a recent decluttering and  organizing spree, I shuffled the contents of all of my kitchen cabinets around and decided to put my spice jars in a basket to save space.

This has worked really well so far. The only problem-- the cute labels I made last year and attached to the side of each jar were not really helping since I couldn't see them!

So every time I needed spices, I'd pull out the basket and take them out until I found the one I was looking for. Except for the cinnamon jar that has a different lid and the Italian seasoning with the lid marked 'chives'--I remembered those!

Today, I finally took about 5 minutes to cut some standard labels in thirds, write the names and stick them on!

Much better!
