Keeping an Organized Home

I like my home to be organized. A friend of mine asked this question on face book: "Do you alphabetize your spices?" My answer: " Of course....yes!" I 'm amazed by how many people don't.
Tip of the Day....
~alphabetize your spices~

Alphabetizing your spices will save you time in the long run because you're not searching all over for a particular spice.

Every now and then, I'll have one or two out of order. As you can see in the photo, MSG is before Mace, but reorganizing is just a matter of switching the two around. It makes it easy to see when a spice is missing and needs to be added to your shopping list. (Sorry about the poor quality of the photo, it's very hard to shoot a photo in a dark cabinet.)

Happy organizing and have a great weekend!



  1. I have mine organized, however they aren't in alphabetical order...that is an excellent idea though! Love organizing! come back and visit me sometime! Robyn

  2. I don't organzize mine - just shove them in a couple of baskets in a too small cupboard. I would like to be that organized but I'm basically a Type B wishing I was a Type A. I can admire your spice cupboard though.
