Time for some new organizing tips! And to be honest I’m crazy about kitchen organizing hacks. Now, who doesn’t want a beautifully organized kitchen right?
Have a look at my latest organizing project, how I once and for all finally have an organized spice drawer!
I love cooking, and I love food with lots of flavors. I often end up buying a lot of new spices I find in the store, online, and while on vacation. And with so many different holders, tins and jars my spice drawer used to be a total mess. It was so bad that I’m not even gonna show a before picture, it was a total nightmare!
This was a fairly easy project, just a bit time-consuming. All you really need is some small glass jars that will fit nicely into your drawer and a marker. I bought my glass jars at a local shop nearby, but you can also find similar glass jars here.
So all you need to do is to fill up your new glass jars with your spices, and write what spice is inside the jar. And if you’re like me and need to know the “use by date”, you can write this detail on the bottom side of the jars.
And for an extra organized spice drawer, feel free to organize the spices alphabetically. I didn’t to that now, but I sure might as well someday! I’m actually NOT joking, to be honest, I feel the need to go and do it right as we speak! .
On this project, I used my favorite all-around marker from POSCA. I’ve tried a couple of different markers, but this is my favorite go-to marker for so many types of creative projects. I love how versatile this marker is and that it can be used on so many different surfaces including glass, stone, wood, ceramic, plastic and even fabric!
This time I used the white POSCA marker. It’s really easy to use, you just need to shake it well (with the cap on..) Press the tip down on the surface you’re writing on, and write whatever you want!
And what I loved about using this marker writing on these glass jars, is that the text can easily be removed just by using a damp cloth. The text goes off really easy just after you write the text, but even after days and weeks, you can still just use a damp cloth and just rub gently to remove the text.
When one spice jar is empty you might want to fill it with a totally different spice, so you can easily just clean away the text and reuse the same jar. I love, love that!
Feeling adventurous? Try using one of the other markers from POSCA. I love pastels and especially pink, so I had to get this marker set as well. So happy with this purchase, been using them for all kinds of different projects lately. There are just so many pretty things you can make with these! Will for sure be showing you more cool projects using these, coming soon!

Is it crazy to feel genuinely happy every time I open up this spice drawer? Might be! But I honestly love how this project turned out. It’s just so pretty, and I wish all my kitchen drawers could look like this. Would so love that! But got some work to do to get there though.Well, we need goals right?
