I just love me a happy spice cabinet makeover, don't you? 🙂
After moving last December I finally decided it was time to reorganize my space cabinet with the right things for the space I have, and oh my word ~ it makes me so happy. (It's the little things in life, don't you think?)
It wasn't really all that bad before, but it's even better now. 🙂
Here's what I did as I was cleaning it out (that you can go do too if you have a few minutes this weekend!)
- Raised the shelves so that I had more space in between the lower shelves.
- Got rid of any expired spices.
- Saved duplicate spices to give to my college-aged kids for their apartments.
- Ordered the Spicy Shelf from Amazon and set it up on the bottom shelf.
- Also used two of these lazy susans (I had them already).

Before . . .
NOT terrible at all, but my organizers didn't work as well in the space I have, and I desperately needed to move my bottom shelves up higher.
After going through the spices I had in an organizer similar to this one (but a little larger), I realized that I had a ton of duplicate spices and that the container took up a LOT of valuable space. By clearing out the extras I have SO much more space for what we actually use.
If you're looking for a few other spice cabinet organizers, we rounded up a bunch of PPP reader favorite Spice Cabinet Organizers in this post.
And, in case you need a little more inspiration here's my spice cabinet makeover from way back in 2016. Not too shabby, but I'm loving my new one even more!
Spice Cabinet Makeover Spring 2016
I bought the most fun organizing toy ever this weekend, and couldn't wait to share it with you!
We have a slew of family coming in for Easter this weekend, and the disaster in my spice cabinet has been long overdue for some attention.
So, after hearing a friend mention how much she loved this, I decided I had to try it out.
It even comes with pre-printed labels, so you can feel oh-so-organized!
And I loved that most of the spices I use from Aldi, Kroger, and Walmart all fit right inside the organizer.
I haven't seen it ever drop in price below $39.99 (if you find one for less I'd love to hear about it), but part of the problem with organizing at my house is that I'm so frugal sometimes I hate splurging on things that seem so frivolous.
But, if I lose everything in my spice cabinet and don't even know what's there (so buy extra stuff bc it all gets lost in the back shelf . . . ), I'm definitely not pinching any pennies.
Have you found any other ways to clean out your cabinets that have worked for you? I'd love to hear them ~ leave a comment to share!
