I am sure none of you out there are like me; you have all your favorite recipes and “I hope to cook you someday because I cut you out of Food and Wine two years ago” recipes in a neat and organized manner. I however, if they are the lucky few they hang out in a file folder, while the majority rest in various places and drawers across my home.
My goal this year is to simplify which in many ways means– get organized. I set a goal that I would get all of those printouts of recipes that I love to cook, and hope to cook in order.
I wanted my disheveled recipes to go from this image below.
To this wonder of organization >>>
- I decided to purge the recipes that while they looked super yummy, I haven’t even cooked and most likely would never cook. I did keep a few recipes that I knew someday I would maybe someday just maybe might cook.
- I then got a nifty binder on sale ($2) to gather up all the recipes.
- I put them all in plastic covered sleeves. This part is expensive and not necessary but I like the idea of protecting the recipes when I am cooking. You can easy opt ot not use the plastic sleeves.
- I added tabs so I could sort through it all.
I thought I would share my recipes dividers with you.
I have 34 categories and a cover page. Some are a bit of repeat but I thought you can pick and choose what categories you would like in your binder.
Here is the list of categories:
- Recipes (cover page)
- New Years
