Anyone that knows me knows that I am an organization nut. And, I am sure the first thing that will pop into their heads is my color-coordinated closet. I can’t help it… I LOVE to be organized. So, lately, I have been trying to find different projects around the house that need some reorganization. My next victim… the cabinet above my cooktop AKA the recipe cabinet.
The before… a complete mess!!!
The first thing I did was remove everything out of the cabinet. I put the cups and candy in their correct locations, and started on the massive pile of recipes.
I separated my recipes into piles.
Then, I got a large binder that I wasn’t using,
and created a cute cover on Microsoft Publisher.
Next, I purchased sleeve protectors and tabbed folder inserts for the recipes.
The sheet protectors are for all of my recipes, which will be awesome. I won’t have to worry about getting eggs or flour all over my recipes when I am baking. Yes, I make a HUGE mess when I am baking. The bigger the mess, the better the food. Right?!?! The two pocket inserts are going to be used for the recipes I plan on trying or ones that I plan on using in the near future.
On the two pocket insert tabs, I made the following recipe sections…
I could’ve made many more, but I only had 8 dividers.

And, here is a picture of my reorganized recipe cabinet! Now, I feel much better. On to the next project…
The small box with the blue lid is for coupons.
