Oils

One of my favorite blogs IHeartOrganizing‘s monthly organizing challenge area for February is the Kitchen.  So, in that spirit, I’m sharing my oils storage here.

  1. It stands next to my stove top, and is super convenient to use.
  2. I love the different colors of the oil.
  3. I can buy giant (and cheap) bottles of oil and store in them in my pantry.

I try to cook many different types of cuisines  so I have lots of different oils at hand.

Though it’s not very clear in the pictures, each bottle has a letter etched on it to indicate what it contains. Etching tutorial and inspiration from Young House Love, and A Beautiful Mess. I feel I didn’t leave it on long enough or didn’t clump on as much as I should have because they are really light, but I can see it.

So Spicey!

One of my favorite blogs IHeartOrganizing‘s monthly organizing challenge area for February is the Kitchen.  So, in that spirit, I’m sharing what my spice cabinet looks like. I have a lot of spices and I love my lazy-susans. Most of them are Indian spices (that I buy in bulk from the Indian stores), but I have other stuff too: Mexican spice packets, Asian spices, Jerk and other spice rubs.

Bottom Shelf: I have two double tier lazy susans. I have small labels on my little Ikea Rajtan jars. I know what the spices are, so I don’t rely on the labels too much. But I am excited to update them. I love the Ikea jars, I’ve made spice boxes with these jars for at least three friends of mine.

The red boxes are just random boxes that I modge-podged some red paper on. Nothing really special here. The boxes make it easy to bring things down.

My spice box is in a drawer right below my cabinet.
