I also picked up an extra 3-ring binder. I had all the kitchen small appliance manuals in the recipe binder which were taking up a lot of space. So I quickly separated them into another binder, slapped a label on it and put it in the office closet with all our other house manuals.
Back to the recipe binder! Using Post-it notes, I categorized and sorted all my recipes into piles around the kitchen.
And then created a label for each category, stuck each of them to a filing tab and then onto a sheet protector. Clearly, I alphabetized and put them in rainbow color order... because I'm a lunatic. No judgement please!
At that point, it was time to start clearing the recipe piles off the counter and placing them under the appropriate category in the binder. And... DONE!
hmmm..... so what's for dinner?!
