Do you have a box or drawer of loose recipes? Ones you've cut out of magazines, newspapers, off of labels, or printed off of the Internet? I sure do.
I've been meaning to corral them in a organized way for forever. When the kitchen was demolished, they kind of just got all stacked up in a chair in the living room (until my husband got sick of looking at them and moved them to the guest room).
Last year while I was in Kentucky, Rachael (who is the sweet daughter of my friend Kathleen, and blogs about her adorable boys and their hilarious antics at Little Boys and So Much Noise) inspired me. She brought with her to her mother's house a binder of her favorite recipes.
So tonight I dug out a binder and some page protectors. I got on the computer and found some clip art I liked and a title for a cover and spine.
The page protectors are too wide to add tabbed dividers and have them be visible. Luckily I had some of these Post-It tabs in the desk drawer.
I put them across the top instead of the open edge since the protectors were so wide.
I already have quite a few of my loose recipes loaded into it, and will continue to work on it. I think I may need more than one binder before I'm done.
This is another thing I've had on the to-do list forever. Action! Progress! YES!
