Organizing Recipes

My recipe clippings were out of control! I could never find what I was looking for so I decided to tame that mess.
Here's what I mean...
Although I have a nice collection of cookbooks, so many of my favorite recipes are clipped from magazines or printed from the internet. (Lately Pinterest is a favorite for great recipes.) I kept them all in a binder until they started to overflow and I just started shoving them into a kitchen drawer. When it was time to cook I couldn't find the recipe I was looking for.

I already had most of the white binders from when we moved into this house. I kept a notebook for each room filled with clippings of inspiration photos and ideas. I only needed a few more notebooks along with plastic shelves and some Martha Stewart labels. I found everything at Staples.

What a difference it made! I can find whatever recipe I'm looking for in a snap. I also have a lot more space to add new recipes to add to my collection. 
I know some of you are so high tech and scan everything into their ipad or laptop but I still like to use real books with paper!


  1. great idea!! i have mine in one big binder but i ran out of space in it already. smart to have a separate binder for each category!

  2. I like to have my recipes on paper in front of me too!
