There is nothing worse than rummaging through an overflowing tub of spices – many jars probably with the lids still open – to find the one you’re looking for.

Well one mum has come up with a way to not only organise her spices, but her solution looks so good you can use it to spice up your kitchen wall as well.

Amy shared her creation on Facebook, and revealed the hack is also relatively inexpensive.

All she used was a selection of jars from a $2 store, some magnets, a photo frame and a $5 mini whiteboard from Kmart.

Placing the whiteboard inside the frame, she attached the magnets to the lids of the jars and spread them evenly along the surface.

Sharing three images online, Amy was super stoked with her “kitchen art”, which she now has hanging on display.

All that is missing, according to a few commenters online, are labels for those of us who can’t tell each spice apart.

“I guess I’ll find out if I can or not,” Amy replied.

Ideas to help tidy up and organise our pantries are all the rage with many willing to try anything to sort through the clutter.

Late last year Adelaide blogger Iryna Federico’s perfectly organised, pretty-in-pastels pantry went viral as she shared some of her tips.

Hitting up affordable homewares stores such as IKEA, Kmart and Costco, Iryna planned her space – which she calls her “command centre” – so everything had a particular home.

Iryna stuck to a strict budget, purchasing $4 spice racks from the Swedish store, but admits she splurged on OXO pop containers from Costco.

She also bought $3 hanging pots from Kmart along with three-tier shelves and tilt jars, which she hacked by spraying with paint to match her colour theme.
