Magazine Recipe Clippings

Do you love to cook? I do! And I have a habit of clipping delicious-looking recipes from magazines or printing them from online recipe sites.

Want a great way to organize them?

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Pick up 5, 4 x 6 in. photo albums at a drug or dollar store.
  2. Label them: Main Dishes, Vegetables & Sides, Fruits & Salads, Appetizers & Breads, and last but not least – Desserts!

I used a label writer to label mine, but you can easily use a permanent marker. I also printed some clip art, cut it out and pasted to the paper inside the the plastic cover.

There you go! A simple way to organize clipped recipes.

One of my favorite things about this is when I try the new recipe and it’s worth making again, I remove it from the album and enter it in my recipe organization program in my computer. If it’s not worth making again – just pitch it!

    Love this, your 125 stocking stuffer ideas, and your accordion folder idea for important papers (that’s a really bad one at our house ;-). I did a similar thing with my magazine clippings, except I glued them into a composition book (those ones with the marble-y looking covers – I think they were 2 or 3 for $1 at back-to-school time). Voila!

    And interestingly, most of the recipes I clipped are from Real Simple magazine. I recently saw a Real Simple Cookbook for sale that is nearly ALL the same recipes!!!! But for the cost of the subscription, and my time glueing, mine was free! ;-)
