Spicy Organization

Did I mention I like to organize?  Well over the weekend I decided to finally get my spice rack back in the order it should be so that I can find something.  That’s Alphabetical order of course!  I have this wonderful full length of the door wire rack on the inside of my pantry door.  It was a little pricey, I thought, when I purchased it a while back, but well worth it to me to get organized.  IMG_20160207_124333There’s only one problem with it.  The sides are a little open and sometimes things fall out.  Hhhmmmmm! How to remedy that?  I first tried to find something that would serve as a backdrop to make the shelves narrower for a single row of spices.  I didn’t have what I needed and I am not going to purchase anything if I can make do with what I have.  I tried small boxes.  Not enough.  I tried cardboard tubes from wrapping paper. Rolls around too much.  I finally settled on black electrical tape.  I know it sounds weird but it works.  The tape is not really sticky but just enough to catch anything on the sides that may fall off.IMG_20160207_124420

Ok, so I didn’t stop there.  To make it easy for the rest of my family to help keep it organized, I labeled the shelves with cute little tags I grabbed from my scrapbooking materials and tied them with some leftover red string that my daughter used a while ago on a math project for school.IMG_20160207_124344

The lesson in this story…Even little things make a big difference when you organize and it doesn’t have to be expensive.  I didn’t spend a dime. You can do this too.  Remember…

The tip of the day:  “Just start with one drawer, one cabinet, one closet or one room at a time so you don’t get overwhelmed-that’s the key to getting organized.”         #organized14ever   (That’s me!)
