Spice Organization: Practical Tips and Solutions

How Should I Organize My Spices?

Are you tired of the spice chaos in your kitchen, where finding the right flavour feels like searching for a needle in a haystack? One of the main sources of frustration in the kitchen is locating and identifying spices! So, what’s the best way to organize your spices so you can easily find and reach for them, especially when you’re in the middle of cooking?

Tips for Organizing Your Spices

There’s a lot to consider when you want to figure out how to organize your spices.

Consider Your Constraints

Take a moment to assess your kitchen’s space limitations, the number of spices you frequently use, and the assortment of containers that you already have. Understanding these factors will guide you towards the ideal organizational method.

Time Commitment

Determining how much time you’re willing to invest in sorting and organizing your spices is another factor. Whether you prefer a quick fix or a meticulous overhaul, find an approach that aligns with your schedule and desired level of detail.

Seek Inspiration, Not Perfection

While it’s tempting to strive for a spice collection straight out of a Pinterest dream, remember that functionality is key. Strike a balance between aesthetics and practicality, focusing on creating a system that suits your needs.

Spice Organization Methods Tailored to Your Personality:

  1. Wall Rack: Ingite your creative side by displaying a vibrant array of spices on a wall rack. Mix and match colourful containers to create a visually stricking focal point in your kitchen.
  2. Inside the Cupboard: Minimalists, rejoice! Keep your spices tucked away in a cupboard, neatly stored in uniformly sized clear jars with labeled tops for easy identification and a streamlined look. Use a Lazy Susan to help with ease of access.
  3. Inside a Drawer: For the pragmatic souls who value efficiency, a drawer next to the stove is the way to go. Group spices by colour or type, allowing for quick and intuitive access during your culinary cooking adventures.

Pro Tip: Make sure to keep your spices away from direct heat sources and sunlight to protect and prolong their life.

Quickly & Easily Put On A Duvet Cover

I created this short video to show you that putting on a duvet cover can be done quickly and easily without a struggle.

The best part is, the whole process takes less than 2 minutes and can be done without assistance.


Sometimes we put off doing things because we think it’s a nuisance or will take too long.

If a task can be accomplished in 2 minutes of less, it’s worth doing without hesitation. The sense of accomplishment you’ll feel will likely motivate you to keep going and moving on to other quick little tasks.

One task builds on the next and before you know it, you’ve done more in a short period of time than you thought was possible!

The key to staying organized is maintenance. I hope this video will inspire a small action step you can take to maintaining your organized home environment.

How To Fold A Fitted Sheet In 1 Minute

Folding a fitted sheet can be tricky and frustrating.

In this video tutorial, I will show you how to quickly wrangle a crumpled mess of a sheet and have it looking as tidy as the day it came out of its packaging in less than a minute.

Transcript below:


In this video I’m going to show you how to fold a fitted sheet.

So, you have the elasticized areas on top, and it’s right-side out.

So what I’m going to do is

take this corner and flip it inside out

and I’m going to place it into the corner of this one here.

That’s half.

Now, I’m going to do the same thing with this corner here.

I’m going to take this corner, place it inside out and place it into this corner here.

Now we have two corners and what we’ll want to do now is

gather it all together and place it into one (corner).

So again, I’m going to grab it, pinch it, hold it with one hand here on this end

while I flip the entire thing.

I’ll quickly give it a shake, place it down on your surface, and…

We’ll want to start folding it in by placing this scrunchy area in toward the center.

So, I’m going to actually fold it into thirds.

I’m flipping it into thirds, and then I’m flipping it over again

And then again, the puffy area will go toward the middle, and it’ll go one third in,

and then two thirds, and it’s done!

There you have it.

Nice and tidy!
