With only weeks to go before moving house there are important jobs to start thinking about. Things that will make the move smother and less stressful. I think we all know what I’m talking about. Yes, that’s right, organising your spices into a vintage spice rack you can’t attach to the wall of your rented accommodation.
I was given the rack by my parents years ago when they found it clearing out boxes that hadn’t been opened since the 70’s. It lived in my old flat and I never really got round to cleaning out the jars properly in a silly attempt to spare the funny chintzy 70’s labels but this meant that I was never able to properly use the jars. Big waste of a lovely resource.
When I rediscovered the spice rack after selling my old flat I decided it was time to make that rack work for me. I cleaned all the jars and dried them on the radiator. Then I found images of vintage chemist labels and used these to make labels for my spice jars. I even went and bought a lovely thick black pen to write on my labels. No more would I be searching through nameless unidentified packets of powder every time I cooked. I was so fired up I even labelled up my larger spice jars which don’t belong with the rack.
I was so happy with the rack I grinned pretty much all weekend and to my shame even invited a friendly neighbour over to view my handiwork. Now I’ve got my spices organised I just know that the move will be effortless. I’m right yes?
