Recipe Sorting...





Here's where my free time was spent on Monday and Tuesday.....sorting out my recipe files.

They were in such a mess, with loose recipes stuffed into the files everywhere. The old files were looking really scrappy and dirty so I bought two new files, some dividers and plastic sleaves and got cutting and glueing. I have a 'Sweets' file and a 'Savoury' file and this time I also made one more smaller file with weeknight dinner recipes in it (forgot to photograph this one).

The weeknight recipe file is working really well. I've only put dinner recipes in there that I know my kids enjoy and that are healthy and fairly quick to make. So now there's no more searching through dozens of recipe books and files to find that perfect dinner.

Tonight I've got some girlfriends coming over for our monthly craft group called 'Staple & Sew'!!! I'll try to remember to take a few photos tonight.

And lastly, some Amy Butler fabric I bought from Reprodepot....how cheap is that place!!! I LOVE this fabric. I'm thinking of using the blue to cover a huge blank canvas I bought for our bedroom. We've got a bit of pale blue, beige and white colour scheme in there so I think this will work nicely.

Great recipe files - I love that red fabric - one of my favourites. It's amazing how much cheaper fabric is from the US - and so much fun to get parcels in the mail.

I divide my recipes into savoury and sweet too - but within the one folder. I love the idea of a weekday dinners folder though - we might need to do that too! Beautiful fabrics - I've been buying up big from Z&S lately - so cheap compared to buying here.

I think I need to sort my recipes too. I never know where anything is and I love the idea of a weekday dinner folder

This is such a simplly fabulous idea. My recipes are all over the place.

I am going to be a copycat and do this too. It will be my weekend project :-)
