Works For Me Wednesday

With all the great recipes on line I needed to find a way to store them in a neat and easy to use fashion. So I bought a binder and some page covers.



Now I have an easy way to store them.









When I get a little more organized, I am going to categorize them by appetizers, main dishes (beef, chicken, pork, fish,etc.), and desserts.







I bought this picture frame holder at the Dollar Tree and while I am cooking I place the recipe in it.












Now I can keep my recipes upright for easy reading and clean because it is covered.

It works for me, for other great ideas go to Rocks In My Dryer.

That's an awesome idea, then you can wipe it off when it get's dirty. I want your granite counter tops, they are beautitul, that is exactly the piece of granite I want. You look like the funnest mom, you put me to shame. I love all the pics with you cooking with your kids. Thanks for stopping by today. Your blog is adorable.

Great ideas! I've pretty much stopped using recipe books because it's so easy to find exactly what I want to make online, but all those odd pieces of paper are quite messy and hard to organize.

That's a great idea for organization and your recipes stay clean as well.

Kristina said...

Love the stand and we have a Dollar Tree two blocks away. I'll have to look for one! The pages keep your recipes clean, so this is a great all around tip!

That is a really good idea, I use my computer for most recipes, so I need to find a protector it! I am always trying to avoid spilling something on it in the kitchen.
