Before the veganity, I had some garlic salt and a jar of Italian seasoning. But when beans and rice are your template, herbs and spices make all the difference. So, my collection steadily grew until I faced the need to do something about it. Here is a brief photo essay on my birthday gift to myself this year: 40 empty spice jars!
#1 Before. Unorganized and difficult to read labels. #2 Ben helping cap and label new jars.
#3 My lovely spice jars all filled up and alphabetized.
#4 On the shelf, arranged by family. Readable and ready to go!
