Bring visual harmony to assorted spices by transferring them to plain jars (we used glass ones, available at housewares stores) and tagging the containers with our self-adhesive labels. Your upgraded collection will be attractive and easier to scan -- no more mistaking the cumin for cinnamon. If you prefer, stick round labels on the lids and stand the jars in a drawer.
You will need one 8 1/2-by-11-inch sheet of self-adhesive paper, a straightedge, a utility knife, and scissors.
1. Download the labels and print them onto self-adhesive paper.
2. Using a straightedge and a utility knife, cut out the rectangular labels; cut out the round labels with a pair of scissors.
3. Peel the labels from their paper backing and carefully affix them to your spice jars.
