Project 14 - Recipe Storage - Part 1

Over at Org Junkie, I've been reading all about organized recipes and cookbooks - this month's focus for the monthly round-up. Most of the time, I get my recipes off the internet or from my favorite cookbooks, but occasionally I write them down from library cookbooks, or clip them out of magazines, or have them emailed to me. This cork-board in my kitchen has become a landing place for all of them, mostly because I have nowhere else to put them:

Kind of unwieldy, no? I swear, I'd never intended for it to get that bad. I just didn't really have a place to put my recipes, and I've found that shoving them in between pages of cookbooks led to me never finding them again. That is, until I went to Michaels, perusing around the dollar aisles to see what I could find. I happened upon these:



For $4, I got a cute little recipe box and 60 recipe cards! Now to successfully transfer everything over.... I'll post a before and after picture when I'm done.

I couldn't find a box I liked, so I got a recipe book/binder - which essentially the same thing. It has slots for all my cards and notebook pages for scribbling.

Cute box! I just use a folder.

That is adorable!

Erin/Maggie: I've been hearing so much about the variety of different ways people store recipes - I'm hoping a box works for me, otherwise I'll be looking into a folder/binder solution! :) Thanks for sharing your storage methods.

Oh, I am going to be stalking Michaels for that Recipe Box! Too cute, and exactly what my kitchen needs... right now I have recipes stuffed in all the drawers.
