Labeling is a fun project and process for me. When I hear the word “label”, I think of ORGANIZED.
There are many different ways to label – with tabs, stickers, folder, markers, chalkboard paint these days, you name it. It seems there are a bazillion different ways to label something.
One thing I have always struggled to label and organize are my spices. I currently have them in a drawer and that is working out fine, except the stickers that I used to label them, are now coming off. There goes that plan! Not that I can’t lift the bottle out to figure out what it is, but I suppose I am lazy and want to see from the top, what the spice is.
Then I had this idea that if I could WRITE on the spice, what it is, that would make my day. I wouldn’t then have to worry about losing the sticker and digging them out every time I bought a new spice.
That’s when the silver sharpie idea came along. I wrote on one bottle and thought “huh, why haven’t I done this before”? So, now all of my spices are labeled with a silver sharpie, I can see from first glance what it is, AND they are all in alphabetical order.
Now THAT is what I have been looking for in organizing my spices!
How do you organize your spices?
