Kitchen Clutter

Originally Written: Wednesday, February 6, 2008

I'm such a can't-cook-in-a-dirty-kitchen kind of a person. The one thing in my kitchen that is not organized are my recipes. Previously, they were almost in every possible format. By every format I mean cookbooks, index file boxes, folders/binders, scraps of paper, stickies on the fridge, etc. This was driving me absolutely batty so I widdled my collection down to a folder, cookbooks, and my lovely index file box; complements of Melinda!

Due to my tiny kitchen, the only place for my recipe stash is above the fridge. Not the most convenient spot. This is even more frustrating when I need to dig out the same recipes week after week that I cannot seem to memorize.

What was the solution to my method of "organization"? I saw this a few months ago and knew it was the solution to my problem. Basically, put the recipes you consistently use on a sheet of cardstock and attach it to the side of your fridge. (Only include the ingredients and basic instructions, since you make them often you should remember the process.) It really is quite an easy solution; one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments.

I made this one same day I saw it and it is my lifesaver. And I might actually start to remember some of the most common recipies I use. How do you organize your recpies?

  1. THIS IS AWESOME! I tend to organize my recipes on my computer. I then write out the basic ingredients on a post it and lose it. I have to look it up again every time. I am totally going to do this now though.
