I was inspired to clean out my spice cabinet after reading Nicole's blog post over at The Chronicles of Nicole.
I am the messiest baker and I tend to keep my bake goods/spice cabinet just as messy.
Here is my cabinet before....I can't believe I let it get this messy. I'm quite embarrassed about it. But I'm blogging about it anyway! :)
This has all expired and had to be discarded!! Some as far back as 2004....OMG!! I can not believe it! The molasses only expired in January so I didn't feel bad that I used it in December!
All finished!!! Doesn't it look clean and organized! YAY! I combined any duplicate spices I had so I only had one container of each....except for cinnamon sticks...why do I have 2 brand new containers? Who knows!! I put all sweet spices on the right side of the doors and all the savory spices on the left. I had to use the two top shelves on the right side for some savory spices though because I ran out of room. I put the ones I use most often on the bottom for easy access.
I feel like baking now....maybe some of John's favorite cookies....Oatmeal Crasins!
