For the last year I have fought with my tiny recipe box.
Sorting, organizing, searching, cursing.
Finally in a moment of clarity, I decided I had had enough.
I brainstormed for an afternoon what recipe-organization-perfection would look like for me.
I ordered a two-inch binder, a set of dividers and package of 100 sheet protectors.
Two weeks later my package arrived.
Then I set to work separating recipes into like groups:
- Main Courses
- Fruits & Veggies
- "kids" (ie playdough, flubber, clay)
I taped the recipes that were one-sided onto printer paper.
The ones that were two-sided, I just slid into the sheet protectors.
Then I took all the cutouts I had saved from sorting through my pile of magazines and made a fun cover for it. Every time I pull it out, it puts a smile on my face!
It is super cute and organized and functions exactly as I need it to.
