Organization seems to be a popular theme for bloggers at this time of the year, with everyone wanting a fresh start to the new year. I thought I would share my system for organizing recipes and household ideas.
I like to use 3-ring binders because they allow so much versatility. I just spiffed up the one for my recipes and menus. The old one was too small, so I found larger 3-ring-binder that I already had, went through some old office supplies for dividers, and used some scrapbook paper and stickers that I already had on hand. Cost of the project: $0
I have two other binders. One is for Home & Garden, where I keep records for my garden, such as the tags from rosebushes so I can remember what I have! and gardening tips that I cut out of magazines or the paper. There's a section on organizational tips, gift ideas to make or buy, holiday decorating, and just general home care such as cleaning guides and maintenance tips.
