Get your Recipes Together! 
By Monica Resinger
_http://homemakersjournal.com_ ( 
Here a few methods I have found to organize recipes:
Your can place clipped recipes and recipe cards in a any  type of photo album 
(hint: go to the thrift stores and pick up inexpensive  albums) although the 
type of albums that you can add pages to would be best  because this will help 
you organize the album better. You can place tabs on  pages to divide the 
album into categories then simply place your clipped recipes  into the 
appropriate category. This method is a great way to keep all loose  recipes 
The plastic protection will help keep your recipes clean. 
Get an accordion-type file to organize clipped recipes  and recipe cards. 
Label each section with a different recipe category then  simply file your 
recipes. This method will at least keep them all together and  is quick, but 
will have to sort through all the recipes in a certain  category when trying to 
find a particular recipe. 
With a recipe box, you can put different categories onto  tabbed dividers and 
you can buy more dividers if necessary. You can file clipped  recipes but it 
is neater if you write them onto recipe cards which is time  consuming. As 
with the accordion file, you'll have to sort through recipes in a  category to 
find one. 
If you have a little spare time this is a  great way to compile all of your 
favorite recipes--including ones in your recipe  books. These programs are 
pre-formatted so you just fill in the blanks. It can  get time consuming 
in all your recipes, but if you stick to entering in  1 or 2 recipes a day, 
you'll make some progress. 
There's a number of benefits using this method, one being that you can  
easily find recipes and print them out. You can print out recipes and make  
homemade cookbooks to give to your friends and relatives. The program will  
the nutrition information for your recipes. Some programs offer a menu  maker 
and a shopping list. It's also easy to locate certain recipes with certain  
ingredients. For example, if I have ground beef on hand, I can do a search for  
ground beef’ and the program will bring up all recipes with ground beef in it.  
Also, these programs come with recipes--so if you don't want to enter your 
own,  you'll still have a great cookbook to use all these features on. 
I use the three-ring binder in conjunction with my  recipe programs.  I have 
put tabbed page dividers into it and labeled each  divider with its own recipe 
category. Whenever I print out a recipe to use from  my recipe programs, I 
punch holes in it and place it into the appropriate  category in the three-ring 
binder. This eliminates the need for me to re-print  the recipe later. 
I hope this article gives you some ideas for organizing  your recipes. Recipe 
collecting can be a fun hobby especially if it is  organized!
