Hey all.
I get most of my recipes (when I use them) from web site (love allrecipes.com).
Problem: I had all theses sheets of paper.
Solution: 3 ring binder/old photo album
and those plastic sleeves! Now my recipes are spill-proof, which is especially good as I can't make a glass of Diet Coke without spilling.
 I have a three ring binder, for decoration I've just stuck interesting articles/comic strips in the plasticy part. I did one for my cousin using an old photo album & decoupaged the outside with pictures from family dinners & cool food pics, then covered with clear contact paper.
 If you have index card recipes, you can even get plastic sleeves that have divisions for four (I think) of them.

All the goo we use, reviewed!

I'm the exact same way

I also like to make my own recipe cards of my fav recipes, cover them with plastic then put them on one of those binder rings

I have this too. Although I get most my recipes out of magazines and HATE writing or typing them over. So I cut them out and glue them onto paper and insert that into the binder. Viola! No more rewriting recipes.

Cool!  No really...the notebook idea.  I have a drawer that is literally jam-packed with old recipes/clippings (from various people & oh yes, the plethoria of magazines).  I just don't know why I never thought of it, though....I do the notebook thing with magazine clippings for craft projects & inspiring pictures (I have 3 big notebooks full!).  Thanks for the idea!


i'd rather be creating an utter mess

I do the same thing!! Yeah! I even bought tabs & have them separated into types of food(desserts, side dishes,etc) cuz I'm anal like that. Problem is I have to get a new one already, cuz I have too many recipies!!!
