Recipe Binder Gift
So I can see from the comments on our Sew & Stow Giveaway that organization is a bit of a challenge for all of us (i can also see that our readers are hilarious). If you haven't created one of Jacinda's Recipe Binders yet, take my word for it, and the word of amazing cooking site The Kitchn, that it's a great system. I like it so much, I made one for myself, and one as a gift for a friend.
For the gift, I downloaded Jacinda's free Recipe Binder Cover and Spine (now available in a million different colors), and solved the tabs-sticking-out-too-far problem by purchasing dividers with the tabs on the top. I bought the binder at Staples, loaded it with sheet protectors, added a cute binder clip to mark the page of the current recipe, and inserted a few of my favorites, including family hand-me-downs, holiday favorites, and our clean print-outs from Prudent Baby recipes.
In my own recipe binder I have side-tabs so I placed them in sheet protectors and added Jacinda's binder templates in different colors to spice it up, and added a "limbo" folder for the recipes I haven't tried yet. They have to prove themselves before earning a page in the binder.
This is an easy (and pretty) way to feel more organized.
