Organize, Organize, Organize. Order in my home brings me so much joy. Order makes my days go smoother and makes finding things at the house so much easier – but guess what? Sometimes I just don’t have the time to organize everything. This, however, if you like order like me, is a simple way to make a quick fix. Place all your recipes in a DIY binder. You will LOVE it.
I didn’t start saving recipes until I moved on an island. Suddenly, I found it difficult to cook because my normal conveniently accessible spices and herbs just weren’t available anymore. It certainly was a learning curve, but I would do was Google the spices and foods available here and discover a new recipe for my family.
When I first started saving those recipes I had a bright idea to place all the recipes in a manila envelope. It was horrible. The envelope was ripped and dirty all over. I then moved to a plastic folder. It was better to keep clean, but it still made the recipes hard to get to since you had to blindly sift through them until finding the one you really needed.
Organizing ALL your recipes in one binder is convenient, neat, and easy to access when using paper protectors. By just a slip of the flip of a page, you can quickly get to your recipe and even have a way of standing it up as you cook. No more food stains on the papers and having to re-print your favorite recipes.
Recipe notebooks that you can make yourself are a great way to store all your excellent online gems or homemade recipes.
