Please welcome Emily to our blog! She will be sharing posts about organizing herself and her husband (and Newell Rubbermaid employee) Andy. I am so excited to have her on board!
This handy little device helped me take my stack of magazines that I'd been hoarding, some circa 2002, and turn them into my recipe binder. I got the idea from i Heart Organizing's post about her recipe binder earlier this year.
My version isn't nearly as fancy as Jen's, but it gets the job done! I used the label maker to create tabs like you would find in a cookbook or recipe box. The labels were super easy to make and you can even adjust the size (so you can fit words like "appetizer" on a tab), style, font and even add borders. There are also lowercase letters, symbols, and numbers too. I skipped on the page protectors and just hole-punched my pages and put them behind the appropriate tab.
I love my new binder and how nice and neat the labels look! Now I have an organized place to keep all those recipe ideas from magazines or the web. It has definitely made adding variety to our weekly menu planning a breeze! Do you have a great way to organize recipes? Please share with us!
