Getting Organized Tip #4: Recipes

Getting Organized Tip #4:
Have piles of cookbooks gathering dust?? I have a couple ideas for you... Scan and print the one or two recipes you use most often, then donate the book. Same goes for recipes in magazines. Tear out the relevant page, then recycle the rest. Put the pages into clear plastic pockets in a three ring binder. Now you have a customized cookbook with plenty of room to grow.
Another option: Blurb. I took all my family's favorite recipes, and made a custom cook book! (I actually made this one for a gift)
They have fun back grounds to choose from. I made sections such as Entrees, Breads, Sides and Salads, etc. and put little personal notes at the top. They have templates to make it easy for you to do cookbooks, stories, memorybooks, and more! And you can download the program and templates for free, put them together, and download it to the site to be made and sent to you! And it's not that expensive!! Check it out!
