Project: Magnetic Spice Jars

We were helping clean up the party favors a friends wedding and my husband had an awesome idea to use the jars (from Ikea) for our spices and make them magnetic so that they could stick to the fridge. A year later we were finally able to organize our spices using the jars from the wedding.

We filled all the jars with our various spices, put magnets in the lids, labeled the jar and then organized them by color on the fridge. Some of the larger spices (like cinnamon and bay leaves) required larger jars, so we reused some of our store-bought spice jars.

No more knocking over the spices and trying to hunt them down in the cabinet. It's made cooking with different flavors so much easier!
