Wow! It's been a busy month for me! I can't believe it's been over two weeks since my last post. March holds a baby shower I'm hosting, April is a big consignment sale with which I'm partnering, and May is a Strawberry Shortcake birthday party, an upcoming event at church, and an end of the year pool party for the kids' classmates. It's gonna be a busy spring!
I've been bit by the spring cleaning bug, and started with my spices. Ever since my freezer cooking day last year, I've been brainstorming about how to re-vamp my spices. For quite sometime, I've had them on the side of my fridge in stainless steel containers from Ikea. More info about that project can be found here.
But a friend at work recently mentioned her infant eating baby food, and the wheels started turning.... I asked her to save jars for me, and another friend started saving, and before long I had a large variety of baby food jars!
Most of the jars are of the 4 oz size (Stage 1), but a few are of the 6 oz size (Stage 2).
I washed them all in hot water, removed the adhesive from the label, and ordered these Avery office labels from Amazon.
Using Microsoft Word, I typed in all the names of the labels and printed out two sheets of round stickers. Transferring the spices from the Ikea containers to the baby food jars was my favorite part - I just loved smelling all the spices! :)
Arranging the new jars in the drawer was my second favorite part!
And now, I love opening this drawer each day and finding the spices. It's the little things.
So what happened to the Ikea containers? I plan on using them in the sewing room to organize buttons, similar to how I organize my ribbon. Stay tuned!
