Previously, I was using this great recipe folder from Kikki K.
It is a great concept, as it is really sturdy and good quality - plus super organised with these divided tabs to sort the recipes into categories.
So, I did some 'googling' and came across this great idea somewhere in blog-land! I didn't really like it at first, because she had hers in a plastic file box, and I knew I would never have something like that sitting out in my kitchen, and I would never use it if it hid away in the study...
Nevertheless, the idea stuck in my mind and in my shopping travels the past week or two, I found these great red hanging suspension files at Officeworks - yay, they matched my decor! Now, all I needed was an appealing box to file them in. Then at Howards the other day, I found this wire rack on the sales table - for $1! Joy! I bought 2 of them. (I have a slight issue with buying multiples of the same item, which can be a costly habit at times - eek!)
Anyway, I was able to quickly relocate my recipes into my new, labelled hanging files, and now I have a fabulous new recipe organiser.
I added some pretty scrapbooking paper to the front, and then dry-pressed the letters to spell RECIPES on the front. Done!
My next task is to create an identical one for my baking recipes - luckily I bought two file frames ;) I will let you know how the whole system shapes up... Make sure you share with us if you have any great tips for organising recipes!
