If you have followed me for a while, you know that I do a quick weekly recipe once a week. So, my herbs and spices are definitely key for keeping my space organized when cooking. I made this video that hopefully helps you get inspired to organizing herbs and spices. I go through my kitchen and talk about how and why I organized it the way I did. Please be gentle, I haven't made a video in a few years. Time of video: 3 minutes and 22 seconds
If you don't want to watch the video, here is what I talked about.
First, I divided the video, starting with frequently used herbs and spices to less frequently used.
I stored my frequently used items on the right side of my range in the upper cabinet. This cabinet houses all the larger container spices, herbs, salt and pepper that I use. It's the go to cabinet on those quick weeknight meals when I need to make something in 20 minutes. This happens at least 2-3 times each week with the kids' schedule being the way it is.
Then I talked about the frequently used drawer cabinet. This drawer has only frequently used smaller bottles of herbs and spices. It's a tiered drawer organizer that sits in the drawer so you can see all the herbs and spices at a glance.
The next area I talk about is the spices and herbs I use less frequently. These herbs are usually rotated and cleared out every few months. I use the regular bottles from the store and store them in ABC order. This organizer is a pull out drawer that leans forward so you can see all the items. It's pretty sturdy and can withstand a lot of wear and tear.
Then I talked about an area in my baking cabinet that houses the spices and other things to use for baking. These items are most infrequently used since I am not a baker. I make too much of a mess, my husband says. LOL
If you are looking for some checklists to help you maintain your herbs and spices, here's a handy checklist that I created to keep all your herbs and spices organized.
