Dollar Store Photo Album For Recipes

I use inexpensive (dollar store) 4 x 6 photo albums to store all my favorite recipes. Works equally well for neatly typed recipes, or those recipes hastily copied from the TV screen.

I use photo albums as well. They work great. They keep the recipes clean, allowing you to wipe the plastic cover if anything spills, plus if you decide you no longer wish to make it, it is easily pulled and tossed. Great idea!

I use ones that I got like from Wal Mart. They are the kind that hold three 4x6 inch pictures on a page. I have been doing this for years and have 2 or 3 of these albums with my recipes in them, plus all the ones i have categorized in MS Word. (03/14/2005)

I do this too!! I have the 4x6 lined index cards for handwritten recipes.

This makes a great gift for someone starting out too! (03/16/2005)

Little Recipe Books

I went to the 99 cent store and bought 4 small 4x6 photo albums with plastic pockets. Then I bought 4x6 index cards and made recipe books out of them. I labeled one "main dishes", one "side dishes", one "desserts", and one "soups". I stood them up on end and each binder is labeled with which book it is and they look nice on my counter and are handy. The plastic inserts also keep my pages clean.

I have been making these albums for recipes for years. I give them as gifts for wedding showers. I have recipes saved in MS Word and I print them out on card stock and cut them to fit with a paper cutter to make the job easier. I even made Printed section dividers between the different categories like Appetizers, beverages, etc. I print pictures of real food on these dividers and it makes it look more professional. These make great gifts, and I feel that this gift is a part of myself given to each bride and give them many of my own Tried and True recipes I have used over the years, as well as ones I have wanted to try.

The pictures of the cook book shown looks so much like mine, it is amazing. I got my photo albums from The Dollar Tree. They are in Loose Leaf Notebook style just like these. It is a really thrifty gift.
