Spice jars

If you want a neatly organized cupboard, you’ve probably considered getting matching spice jars. But when you head to the nearest home store, you’ll likely find that they’re pretty pricey. This doesn’t have to mean you should give up your idea of an organized and Instagram-worthy kitchen yet. Upcycle your Mason jars to create a matching set for cheap. Spray the lids in a matching color for a cohesive look, and label them with a marker.
