10 Ways to Spice Things Up in Your Kitchen
What do you think? Are you ready to spice things up a bit in your kitchen?
As you know, we love sharing our favorite tips and tricks with you, but have found that everyone’s style of living NEAT is slightly different. With that in mind, we thought we would share some of our OTHER favorite things we have found to make your spice area the best yet! First, you must choose your spice jar. Obviously, we love to use these from the Container store, but if you are looking for something less conventional, here are a few of our other favorites…
The stainless option is great for a more modern home. Keep in mind that this is only good if you are going to be looking at the spices “head on” since they will all look the same from the top.
This picture alone made us want these hexagon glass jars. If you love something that is streamlined but a little different, this could definitely be your look!
Finally, if you like a more “found objects” look in your home, these jars with the cork top are perfect for you!
Not ready to commit to refilling spice jars everytime you run out? We get it! There are very pretty spice jar options that you can just buy and use prefilled instead. We believe it is best to stick with one brand when purchasing spices. It creates the same, beautiful, uniform, look as purchasing jars. For example, if you are a big cook, you might love these from Dean & Deluca.
You can also find these from Spice Island at many grocery stores or online.
Finally, this happens to be a personal NEAT favorite when it comes to spices!
If you have decided to take your spices to the next level, that means you are going to need to label them! We have found THE BEST labels to purchase, download and DIY! We have to start with our major etsy crush, IttyBittyPaperCo. We cannot begin to describe how much we love these. If you follow us on instagram, you may already know!
If you are looking for a simpler look, we found this site that helps you make a beautiful label like these shown above!
Are you looking for something that has a rectangle shape? We get it – sometimes the circle isn’t for every kitchen. Here you go!
FINALLY…. are you wanting to write your labels on your own?? Finding the perfect pen is seriously 99.9% of the battle. UNTIL you find an epic site that shares what every pen looks like, what it writes on, and where to buy it. We are not even kidding, THANK YOU Elaine from JetPens Blog.
