Good morning, savvy savers! As we are currently in Earth Month, and soon approaching Earth Day, for this weeks Organizational Ideas, I wanted to share with you one of the upcycled ideas I implement to save myself time, money, and effort in my home kitchen, my Starbucks Frappuccino Spice Bottles!
I have always loved the shape and size of these bottles, and while looking at a case of these beautifies my husband brought home last fall from Sam’s Club, I began to think of how much these bottles resembled the spice bottles I saw in Europe. Sure, the original design was marketed to be reminiscent of the old-timey milk jugs of the last century, but to me they called for a higher purpose! I simply boiled the bottles for one minutes in hot water, removed the labels with olive oil, air dried, and then filled with spices.
As you can see, I store a myriad of spices in my jars, from my cinnamon sticks, to my curry powder, and homemade taco seasoning. I have them lined up five across, and three deep, and without taking up much cabinet space, am able to accommodate all of my spice cooking needs!
This is one of my favorite upcycling projects in my home, and I hope you like it as well!
Here’s to being organized!
