Today I decided to clean out my cookbook cupboard.  (When we redid our kitchen 20 years ago I included a cupboard just for cookbooks).    OMG what a mess!  I can't believe al

In the office supply dept. of your WalMart you'll find clear plastic "pockets"  (wish I could remember the correct name) that go in a three ring notebook.  Anything printed gets put in the open top of this page-size thing and it's safe forever.  These are really great for saving anything.

Those "plastic pockets" have worked well for me.  My collection outgrew a single notebook so now I have a three ring binder for each classification ie breads, veggies, meats, cakes, pies etc  and my collection is still growing.  I have some plastic hooks designed for hanging hand washables but I clip a recipe in its' sleeve and hang it on the cupboard handle. It keeps the recipe at eye level and out of the mixtures I'm making.
I am a recipe and cookbook collector and appologize to no one for that particular vice.  I will need to live to well over a hundred in good health to make all of the recipes I have collected. lol

Just recipes - not books

My favorite way or organizing precious, much-used recipes is to put them in clear, plastic reicipe holders taped to the inside of my kitchen cabinet doors. 
The very best ones have a big red star drawn on with magic marker.

Ok, Here is a real "senior moment"  Some time ago I was looking for a recipe that I knew I had in one of my cookbooks, however I couldn't remember which book.  It took me all afternoon to find it!! LOL

Nancy, I have some taped to the inside of my cabined doors also.  My sister's granola recipe is one of them.

I try to organize my recipes at least once a year!  And yes, it is a job that takes a few days to finish. 

I do like the idea of getting a 3 ring binder with pages protectors.  I think that is what I might do the next time I organize my recipes...well that will be soon!  lol
