how to organize a spice drawer with FREE printable spice labels

After jamming random-sized spice bottles in my kitchen drawer for the past year, I decided it was high time I gave my spice drawer a little makeover.

Many of us have been doing full-scale organizing of drawers and closets since quarantine, so I thought I would share this DIY if you’re looking for a new project!

Don’t worry. This spice rack organization is a Level 1 project! No need for specialized skills or master’s degrees. Lol. I’ve done all the hard work for you!

how to organize a spice drawer

For this spice drawer, I wanted to create a super organized and straightforward system so I could easily find what I needed and avoid waste.

I went with plain 4 oz glass bottles and a basic white label to keep it clean and simple.

UPDATE 7/16/2021: I love these minimalist jars, but one critique is that the mouth of the jar is quite narrow. If you use rounded teaspoons they don’t fit into the jar to scoop spices out. I am unable to fit even a rounded 1/2 tsp into the opening. Although I absolutely love my spice rack, if I had to do it again I would probably find a wider mouth jar. Here are a few options from Amazon.

For the drawer organizer, I originally purchased a trim-to-size spice liner from Amazon, but it seemed cheap. I decided to opt for a bamboo spice rack instead, and I love it. That being said, I had to order it twice because the first time it arrived broken. The second time it came perfectly intact and looks beautiful!

What I love most about my new spice rack organization is seeing everything I have available and what I’m running low on.

NEW UPDATE 7/16/21

Over the past year, you guys have loved this free spice label download. I’m so glad you are loving this free product and I am truly blessed to have you follow the blog! I love you guys! However, in the last year, I’ve had many readers ask me to customize specific labels not included on the spice label download. After much thought, I finally came up with a solution. I’ve created a simple template at a minimal cost so you can easily fill in all the missing spice labels you require. You can find it here on my Etsy shop: CaitlinDeLayLiving. That being said, the printable download I originally created no longer works with the new label template. I’m updating this post to let you know the download you will receive in the email has both options attached. The new download will work seamlessly with the template offered on the Etsy shop. I have also added label paper recommendations required for this new download and template. You cannot use precut labels for the new download, you must use full sheet label paper and cut after you print. If you have any questions or run into issues please let me know!

  1. Hi! I love all of these labels! Can you tell me what the numbers mean on the spice labels? I see them everywhere but am not making the connection. Thank you!

  2. Hi Caitlin,
    I looooove these labels! I’ve been making them in Dutch (native language) but I can’t get them as nice as yours. Somehow my letters are really close together? I’ve been using Montserrat (the normal one), and I’ve also been trying different font sizes but nothing seems to work.. Do you have any tips for me? Thanks so much again!!

    1. Hey Esther, thanks for commenting. 🙂 I love that you’re using these labels in your native language! I sent you an email with all the imformation. Please let me know if that works for you!

  3. Really Nice labels! My Native language is dutch as well. Could I get the information mentioned above sent to my e-mail? Thanks in advance

  4. Thanks so much for these labels, my new draw looks amazing. However can I ask if you can add labels because my OCD would love for everything to match. I would need Rosemary, Chervil, Chives, Tarragon, Sate, Singapore Seasoning, Northwoods Seasoning, Chinese Five Spice, Lemon Peel,Mignonette Pepper. I truly appreciate it. I’m Italian and both my husband and I love to cook👍

  5. Hi Caitlin 😊 I would also like to receive this information, may natives languages are french and german 🦋
