How-To: New Spice Jars for Small Kitchens

One of the down sides to living in Boston is that houses usually dont have as much storage space. We live in a suburb outside of Boston so we are fortunate enough to have a bit more space than a smaller condo, however, our kitchen cabinet space is still minimal...we even opted from putting a fun spice rack on our wedding registry as there just isnt enough counter or cabinet space for a spice rack. However, it can still be tricky to find storage and enough shelf space for all these different cooking herbs and spices...which come in bottles that are all different shapes and sizes.
We decided to make a trip to Bed Bath and Beyond and found some convenient little glass spice bottles, and each cost only 99c. I then used some of the simple printer labels that I use for some of Etsy products. I could have probably made more decorative labels if I had more time, but these served their purpose. I also decided to print the titles in different colors to make things a little more distinctive at least.



I then created a paper funnel to help transfer the spices into the new jars. Trust me, when I first tried just pouring some of the rosemary in without the makeshift funnel, I ended up with rosemary all over the counter!


The jars fit perfectly inside the small spice rack that is build into one of our cabinet doors! :)
