Happy Friday! Words cannot explain my excitement for this weekend! Nothing special is going on, I actually don’t really have any plans at all, but you know what? That’s why I’m excited! It’s been a loooong week to say the least, and quite frankly I am really looking forward to some good ole’ down time with this little guy!
This morning I scarfed down the usual B-fast of choice, which is the same as yesterdays, and the day before that, and the day before that! I didn’t bother taking a photo because A) I forgot and B) I’m sure you can call make an educated guess on what it was! If are so inclined to see it, take a look at this post where you will find a few detailed photographs
Organization is not something that I struggle with, but I wouldn’t say it’s one of my strongest points either. The hardest part for me is usually to just to start organizing. Once I begin decluttering my bedroom, car, closet etc…I won’t stop until I am done, and everything looks perfect. For the most part I try to organize my bedroom 3-4x per week, my closet 1x per season, my car 1x per month, and my desk once every few months. There’s really no rhyme or reason to the way I organize my things, I have my own method and it works for me!
I generally try to first thoroughly clean out whatever I am organizing by vacuuming, dusting and using disinfectants. Then I proceed to put everything in some type of order. Sometimes I get frustrated and go on a “throwing away” rampage, where I throw out a bunch of papers, clothes and nick-knacks that I think I don’t need. Months later, I usually ending up re-buying whatever I threw out, because I find out that I actually do need it! I have my mother to thank for this type of behavior, no hoarders in this household!
When it comes to organizing my recipes, I am at a loss for words. I have tried electronically storing them in a favorites folder on my computer, I have tried printing them out and putting them in a folder and I’ve also tried the whole recipe box thing. All of these methods worked for a little while, but then quickly faded away within a few months. The problem is that I have SO many recipes that I want to try, but I haven’t yet discovered a method to organize them in way that makes them easily accessible and pleasing to the eye. Any suggestions???
I’m pretty much stumped! I am currently leaning towards creating a “recipe binder” like the one’s pictured below, where I would put my recipes into sheet protectors, and label them by categories. I am hoping that this will work because my current method (or lack there of) is down right BAD!
It’s really annoying when I know I have a recipe that would be perfect for a certain occasion, but when it comes time to make it, I can’t find it! I either forgot the website, don’t know which magazine I ripped it out of or lost the piece of paper that I wrote it on! Any insight that you could give me on you organize your recipes would be much appreciated! Clearly I need some assistance in this area! Thanks!
How do you organize your recipes?
Do you think that you are an organized person?
How often do you organize your room, closet, car, recipes etc ?
Have a GREAT weekend!
