Friday Quick Tip - Organizing Essential Oils

In the last post, I mentioned that I keep a list of things I am on the lookout for.
One of the things that had been on the list for a long time was a spice rack. 
I wanted one of those old ones like I remember from way back in my youth. 
A while back, my mom and I were in a neighboring town. 
I asked if she would mind stopping in at their thrift store 
to look for pants for Mr LB. 
She does not like thrift shops but if it's for Mr LB, it's okay. 
We found men's jeans but none in his size. 
I asked if she would mind if I walked through the housewares really quickly. 
She said "Why?  What do you need?"
I told her I keep a list and one thing was a wooden spice rack. 
I went down one isle and her another. 
In less than a minute, she came around the end and said "is this the kind?"
I laughed and threatened to take her thrifting with me more often. 
I told her I'd been looking for one for a long time for my essential oils. 
Until then, my EOs were kinda homeless and in no particular order. 
They now have both and are convenient as well. 
I treated Mom to lunch so she said it was worth it for her. 

I hope you all had a very blessed Thanksgiving.


  1. Congratulations! That's beautiful. I have one, too. They are so charming...

  2. This is just what I need for my EO's too! I love that your mom found it for you! What fun :) I will add that to my thrift store list now too!!!

    1. I never thought it would be difficult to find, but I am loving it!

  3. That is a great idea! Now I'm on the lookout too!

  4. I love your spice rack. I have only two tiny EO bottles, so they don't need a rack but something like this is very useful to organize small things.
