I know that it’s only February, but it was 75 degrees this week in Nashville and I caught the spring cleaning bug! I decided it was time to organize my mess of a pantry because I was making my roommate look bad.
I made a trip to the Container Store and for about $50 I now have nicely organized pantry shelves and look like I have my life together. I bought a mixture of jars to add a little contrast to the shelves. In the jars I poured in nuts, oatmeal, flour, loose leaf tea and everything else I could to eliminate bags and excess containers.
In the baskets I put my spices, cooking oils, nut butters and any miscellaneous items that I couldn’t pour into jars. Copper Wire Basket HERE
I wish my handwriting was neater, but I guess we can’t have everything in life. I may print labels next time for a more sophisticated look. Stackable containers HERE

This past fall, I decided to do a little redecorating and picked up some mason jars at Michaels to add a little ambiance to my fireplace mantel. I think it turned out quite well. I love that I can change out the floral to match pretty much any season and holiday. This was my inspiration and it’s also where my obsession with mason jars began.
When searching Pinterest for more things I could do, it blew my mind what people came up with for mason jar uses. Here are 5 of my favorites! Not only do that add a unique look, but they offer practical uses too. The last one is my absolute favorite and I have a feeling I might go a bit overboard with it…. Do you have a mason jar obsession? Share your projects with me in the comments!
This is such a great way to hide those lovely cardboard boxes and you can create it to match any part of your home decor.
This may be my next project. I love love how this looks and would be way cheaper than buying a set at the store.
This is so fancy. What an awesome way to add a little fun and tidiness to the kitchen. I have to read a bit more into the labels to see if I have the craftiness for it, but gosh I love them.
I’m loving these for the kitchen and guest bathrooms.
And my personal favorite. Whoever actually thought of this is genius. I’ve seen them used to store bathroom supplies, crafts, kitchen goods and so much more. The perfect way to organize without taking up so much counter and desk space.
