Organized (Recipes)

Keeping your recipes well-organized and in one spot is a lifesaver when planning your weekly menu or when you want to easily find something to make.  I, like many of you, often tear recipes out of magazines and put them into binders with clear, plastic protective sleeves.  To add a pretty and creative element, I also print recipes from my computer onto fun paper that corresponds to the dish in a unique font.  Check it out below: Organization- Recipes 001 Organization- Recipes 002 I have two binders, one for meals, one specifically devoted to desserts:) Then I created a label and dividers: Organization- Recipes 003 Organization- Recipes 004 Organization- Recipes 006 Organization- Recipes 007 Organization- Recipes 014 Finally, I print the recipes on craft paper in varying fonts: Organization- Recipes 008  Organization- Recipes 010 Organization- Recipes 012 Organization- Recipes 013 Organization- Recipes 015 Organization- Recipes 016 Organization- Recipes 018 Organization- Recipes 019 Organization- Recipes 020 Organization- Recipes 021 Happy cooking!    *Here are the parties I’m linking to:)

    Love the idea of using a printed color page for the header for each category! I need to go through my recipes again, that binder is getting overwhelming!

    Great ideas! I really need to work on this. I have mine all stuffed in a box. A cute box but a very disorganized box. You've inspired me. That's my project for tomorrow! Yeah! Where do you have the labels? Can you show more pictures? I'm so delighted I've become your newest follower! Thanks!

    I so need to organize my recipes! I have so many print-offs from blogs, recipe sites, etc. And they are all stuffed into the front pocket of a binder. Yours looks so pretty!

    I just recently organized my hot mess of a recipe file, and boy, am I glad I did! It's so much easier to find my favorites! Yours looks amazing!

    I absolutely love the decorative papers that you use for your recipe book! Much more exciting than the plain boring white printer paper that I use! Thanks for the inspiration! Saw you over at Funky Junk Interiors.
