Spice cabinet is a glass act
One spice-cabinet project I recently tackled was for the sake of better organization. I buy my most-used seasonings in bulk, and used to just keep them in the baggies from the store. Sick of sifting through an assortment of these bags, I decided to find a more sturdy, reusable container. Plastic won’t break, but it absorbs scent. These jars are cute, but $2 a pop adds up quick. My solution? Jelly jars.
A dozen four-ounce jars only costs about $10. They’ve got a big enough mouth to enable easy filling and scooping, something you can’t always do with the plastic spice containers you find at the store. They also come with sticky labels, which come in handy so you can differentiate your paprika from your ancho chili powder. I’ve opted to write in pencil on these labels in case I feel like mixing up.
