DIY Spice Organizer
Jamie here, I hate my messy spice cabinet with a passion, so this week I had the bright idea to tidy it up with a cheerful DIY Spice Organizer! (Not so much DIY as Recycled)

If you can’t find this at Target (they change their Dollar Spot items up so frequently it’s hard to say), I’m sure you can pick up various file bins at the Dollar Tree, Walmart, and other places that won’t cost much. Even at a few dollars, this DIY plastic wrap organizer is ceratainly more cost-effective than these options:
What other kinds of uses can you come up with for a file bin? Do you think it would make a good spice organizer??
