So, three-and-a-half boxes of canning jars and a ridiculous number of sneezes later, my spice drawer has gone from this:
This was the easiest project ever. Buy several boxes of 250 ml jars, fill them with the mess of spices already in my drawer, and label them with marker on top. Oh, and I alphabetized them and added a drawer liner! How positively Martha Stewart of me! I may go all out and make cute printed labels, but for now, the marker works just fine.
Now that I'm feeling brave and victorious, here's the big disaster I call a pantry:
Notice the top shelf is breaking away from its supports under the tremendous weight of all the flour and other
junk essentials I have stashed up there, and the odds and ends that have been squeezed off the shelves ad onto the floor. I'm not sure when I'm going to have time to attack this, but now that I've posted this photo, I feel mortified enough honour-bound to make sure it happens.
