Keeping Recipes Organized

If you are like me and have literally hundreds of recipes, I would suggest that you purchase several photo albums and place your loose recipes in there. That way they are organized and easy to find.

Thanks for the idea, Robin! I enjoy cooking and I like to try new recipes. For the ones I print off the internet, I print on both sides of a sheet of paper and slip into a clear page protector. I then put in a binder. I have made up quite a few of these binders according to category so in other words, I've made my own cookbooks. If I try a recipe and we like it, it stays and I write notations right on the sheet but if we don't really love it, then I pitch. I love to cook for my family....I also love to eat and my body shows it :-(

I used to love to collect recipes. I put them in my breadbox until it was stuffed. So I never tried any of them, too much of a mess. After a while I realized that I really don't like to cook. So I "organized" my recipes by dumping the whole stash of them into the trash.(I was moving so had to do something) I found I don't miss them at all. If I really need a recipe for something I can just look it up on someplace like this. And they're already "tried and true". Thanks, Pam

Thank you Robin,

I have saved many, many of your recipes.I am a total Fan.I am now looking for them to see what's new.

I have a computer program called "TreePad" that does a fine job of keeping them organized,and I still have acess to it offline.

I wonder if you will publish your own cookbook?Could you tell us a little about yourself,and a picture maybe?

Robin, If you have hundreds of recipes they aren't going to fit in "a few photo albums"!

Of course hundreds of recipes will fit into a few photo albums. has several photo albums that hold 200-500 photos each. That's 200-500 recipe cards each. Just do the math. It works. ... 1/002-9597803-8692058?tag=thrif06-20

Way to go Allison, I totally agree. I probably just made someone made a few minutes ago but I think if someone asks a question, answer it, dont break down what they said and give them advice they didnt ask for. Ok shutting up now, except to say I clicked on here to give a big HURRAH to Robin, I always know I will see her name on the recipe postings somewhere and I have downloaded a many of them. So Thanks ROBIN and thanks everyone who gives there time to make this a wonderful newsletter.

You can use a notebook binder and page protectors for full page
