One of the best decisions I ever made in the organizing department was to donate all my cook books. I used to have a bunch. They took up all sorts of space.
I have this.
The thing was, I'd use 3 recipes from one book, 2 from another, and in a huge stack of books maybe only 20 or 30 pages were actually ever getting looked at.
So one summer I made it my project to write out all my favourite recipes on cards.
I colour coded various categories.
And now this is the amount of space my recipes take up. I have some loose papers in there - recipes I've printed off the internet or ripped from magazines. When I have some spare minutes I'll write them on cards too. I have lots of extra cards so that I can keep on adding new recipes whenever I need to.
