If you are spending your time this New Year getting organized, I have another great project idea for you. This is a fabulous way for organizing recipes where you can actually find the ones you need. Plus the supplies are super affordable at Old Time Pottery.
Start with some coupon organizers and a label maker. That is all you need to get your recipes organized and ready when you need them. You will need as many coupon organizers as you have categories. Some of my categories include main dishes, sides, desserts, slow cooker, appetizers, breads, sides, and salads. However you can label the front of your coupon organizers with whatever categories work for your home.
Then just open it up and label each of the tabs with a subcategory within the main category that you put on the front. Again these are totally up to you! You need to create a system that works for the chef in your family. In the example below, I labeled the inside of my dessert organizer with bars, cookies, cake, candy, cupcakes, fruit, and pie.
All that is left is for you to sort all of those recipes by category. I am still going through many years’ worth of magazine and newspaper clippings around our home. I can’t wait to have an amazing organized recipe system and actually be able to find the recipes I need quickly. I think this will be a time saver in any home. Have you ever spent more time looking for a certain recipe than cooking dinner? I know I have! Grab your coupon organizers and get started on organizing recipes today!
