Smart Spice Rack!

Last post, we talked about some smart space-saving ideas around your kitchen. Today, we’ll focus on another great idea you can apply to your spice rack and more!


Do you love cooking? Do you feel right at home in the kitchen? Do you consider your secret super-hero persona would wear a toque instead of a cape? Does your patronus wield a wooden spoon or spatula? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then I think we can safely say you are a certified kitchen buff, and you know it!

I can tell that you are also quite serious when it comes to your tools and cooking condiments. You know exactly where the Sriracha is, and can navigate your cupboard even with your eyes closed. However, have you ever felt you wasted precious time inspecting the sides of every spice container to see if you have the right one? Here’s a handy tip that can help you organize your spice for optimal cooking efficiency. Plus, it’ll make your kitchen even 20% cooler!

Get some blackboard chalk – if you don’t have any, you mix a cup of acrylic paint and one-and-a-half tablespoons of tile grout. Take a brush and paint the tops of each spice cap evenly and let dry for half an hour or so. Now, you can label your spice containers with chalk, and know which is which at a glance!
