How do you organize your recipes? I love my cookbooks but I have a lot of loose recipes from friends, magazines and the internet. Several years ago, I was inspired by my cousin who organizes her recipes in binders by category. It keeps everything neat and allows for quick and easy access.
So my current organization style is binders, along with “piles of loose recipes from friends, magazines and the internet.” And I am in need of an overhaul!
Here are my Recipe Organization Goals for this month . . . and yes, I’m getting started a little late!
- Go through current binders and purge! There are a lot of things I know I’ll never make so there is no point in keeping them, right?
- Sort through the current pile of loose recipes, tri-punch holes and insert into the proper binder and sub-category. (I have a lot of plastic sleeves that I plan on using for the front, most-used recipes.)
- IF I have time, I have all of my mother-in-law’s recipes. I would like to start typing them up and distributing them to all my sisters-in-law. Lots of treasures in there!
How do you organize your recipes? I’d love to hear!
