Recipe Book Instead of storing your recipes in the "haphazard shoebox" fashion how about converting them into a nice recipe book? If most of your recipes are on index or recipe cards a photo album with plastic sleeves may work particularly well for you as long as the card fits comfortably in the slot. If you have quite a large collection of recipes try obtaining a large family photo album that allows eight to twelve slots per sleeve (front and back). The order you put the cards in is totally up to you as your recipe book should reflect your preference. Some people prefer to sort based on main dishes desserts breads/pastries beverages etc. while others prefer alphabetical order. If you dont have your recipes on cards or if youre like most people you might have your recipes on papers and cards of all shapes and sizes. If this is the case you might want to think about typing them all up and printing them off.
