Space and Order is freedom from disturbance; it’s tranquility. Organizing your pantry is investing in creating more space for peace and joy in your home; and freeing yourself from the clutter that muddles your brain.
Plus, when you place your spices in order, you are able to find them faster – which saves you time.
This ULTIMATE GUIDE ON ORGANIZING SPICES was created with the purpose of teaching you how to create both Function and Beauty in your pantry. Function creates order and as I mentioned before, when things are tidy we know exactly where to find what we are looking for. Beauty. When the eye sees something beautiful, happy sparks light up our brain and positive associations created. Your brain likes that happy spark so much that it wants to go back for more. So let’s get started!! Let’s create a beautiful and functional pantry starting with your spices.
01. DETERMINE YOUR NEED.
Much of pantry organization is about observation. What do I mean by that? Pay attention to what you are truly consuming and what is going to waste. Which are the most used Spices in your kitchen? Which spices have expired or are unused? The first step to organizing your spices is to determine which spices youneed. Once you have determined which spices you need- set those aside. Discard the spices that haven’t been used- you are breaking up with them. They no longer get your time or attention. On the other hand, the spices that you do use deserve your time; they deserve a second date sorta speak.
02. CREATE & DESIGNATE A SPACE FOR SPICES IN YOUR PANTRY.
Now its time to designated space for your spices. I have a wonderful spice rack hanging from my pantry door. I love that I can see all my spices and that they reside in a space that is functional for me. You might be working with space in: a cabinet, a shelf inside of your walk-in pantry or a pull-out spice drawer. There are many different spaces, determined by the size of your kitchen and your preference. The important thing is to create a functional space for your spices.
