Can I be real for a second, I am beyond unorganized. I mean, I try my best but sometimes life just gets crazy. Case in point this kitchen of mine. Once I started content creating full time I realized I have way too many items on my countertops and in my kitchen period. I immediately started to find a place for everything and organize my kitchen. Then it hit me. Like a ton of bricks, as I opened my drawers and saw the mess that I and my family created.
Yes, I said family because I’m not completely at fault here. Insert sneaky grin lol.
The button line is that I have too much stuff. Half of which I don’t even use. It’s like a sea of lost oddly shaped serving spoons and spatulas. I have truly had enough. It’s time to get it together. If you are watching my YouTube vlog series then you know I am doing a 30-day glow-up challenge and this includes getting my home in order.
My first order of business has been my spice drawer. Pray for me, because this drawer was a hot mess express, OK!. I found expired spices and seasonings. Multiple jars of salt and four containers of black pepper. Yes four, and all of them were open. Like what is going on in this house.
It has gotten completely out of control and today I am starting to re-organize my kitchen. It took 2 hours to clean, organize, label, and store all of my spices. Well maybe not all of them since I ran out of jars, but 95% of them. It was a labor of love but I’ll be honest. It was so satisfying to do. Although I haven’t completed my kitchen organization yet I wanted to share with you the before and after of my spice drawer.
I didn’t realize how happy this would make me. Especially since I’m not really into organization and labeling.
I think I may have been beaten by the home decor bug.
If you’re not following me on Pinterest, now would be the time to do so. I will be posting all of my home decor updates there as well as some of my inspo for the rest of my home remodeling.
Let me show you what I’ve done so far.
I picked up these spice jars and labels from Amazon. This process showed me that I had more spices than I thought and as a result I ran out of jars. Below are the jars I ordered but fill free to look around for more options.
