This glamorous housewife is in need of some serious organization. I thought I would start with my recipes.
This is my original recipe folder. You can see that at one point I tried to be organized by putting the recipes I cut out of magazines or printed off the computer into an accordion file. But after a while they just turned into one jumbled mess.
This is what would happen every time I opened the file. So after a while I stopped opening it. I decided it was time to get my recipes organized, so here is what I did.
I started by organizing my recipes by category. Then I slipped each page into a plastic paper protector. These were then added to a three ring binder. I felt like I was back in school!
The funnest part was making a collage to decorate the folder. I just cut a few vintage food pictures from one of my vintage magazines and glued them to a piece of computer paper and then slipped it on the top of the folder.
This way when I need some cooking inspiration I can go through some old recipes I had wanted to try.
Besides Pinterest, how do you organize your recipe collection?
