Repurpose Household Jars, Containers, & Baby Food Jars: Make Your Own Spice Rack

At the start of every new year, I like to get rid of things around the house and get organized. I start in the kitchen. Specifically the pantry. I’m always amazed by how much expired food I find in there–especially spices! Last year, I came up with a really cool way to store my spices using baby food jars, a baby food carousel, and labels. I blogged about it then, but I thought it was time to bring it back for those of you looking for new and easy ways to get organized in the new year.

All you need are baby food jars that have been thoroughly cleaned and food labels removed. Once they are clean and ready to be filled, you will need to figure out a way to label the spices contained within each jar. I used spice labels from Mabels Labels, but you could even print your own using a simple word processing program.

If you have kids, you may already have a baby food carousel, like this one or any other you have or can find. They are very affordable {the one at Babies R Us is $7.99} and work perfectly for this project! Here is how mine turned out:

It totally organized my spice cabinet! Now, I can easily get to all of my spices and can actually see everything. Plus, it looks cute too!
