Fall is upon us, which means we begin to bring out all of our cookbooks and recipes for baking season. But like most people, our recipe collection can become an overwhelming unorganized mess. “Simplify Your Home” has these tips on how to organize your recipes so that you have easy access to your family favorites.
Have a special place for your cookbooks and organized them in alphabetical order. This way you will know exactly where to go when you are looking for a recipe. Flag your favorite recipes with a post-it-note so you can get to them quickly when searching.
Favorite family handwritten recipes can be displayed nicely in a photo album with plastic sleeves where you can ensure their safety for generation.
Tip # 3
Recipe boxes with divider cards are still popular. Check this one out at Crate & Barrel.
For loose recipes and recipes you receive on-line, purchase a three ring binder with plastic sleeves and tabs. Place your recipes in the plastic sleeves and use the tabs to categorize them.
