Chalkboard Lids for Organization

Posted by  ·  September 4, 2014  ·  Last Updated: September 4, 2014

I have been trying to tame the clutter in my kitchen! We have a junk drawer that needed a bit of attention. Chalkboard lids for canning jars were the perfect solution!  In fact, any recycled jar with a lid could be used.  Just make sure the jars fit in your drawer.

Grab some canning jars or recycled jars with metal lids and chalkboard paint.  I love this Valspar brand from Lowe’s. It works great on metal.

Organize your stuff into the jars!

Use chalk or a chalk marker to write on the tops of the lids.  These little jars are perfect for spices too!
