10 Ways to organize your recipes

I organize my recipes in two ways: 'Archive recipes' are the ones I don't make too often but want to keep. They go into a file box and are organized by main ingredient (beef, fish, pasta, etc). The recipes I make regularly stay in my kitchen. I keep them in a clear plastic sleeve and when I'm cooking, I tape the sleeve to the kitchen cabinet above my work area with the recipe facing outward so I can continuously refer to it while preparing the dish.

Here are 10 other ways I found to organize recipes:

You might also try BigOven, which is what I use to organize recipes. BigOven has free mobile apps with 250,000 recipes from other cooks, an awesome menu planning calendar and a grocery list that automatically sorts items by aisle. You can add your own recipes too, and just paste recipes by web url privately. You can even use BigOven’s mobile apps to take photos of your own typed or handwritten paper recipes, and BigOven types them for you into fully portable, scalable, searchable recipes. I love being able take all my recipes with me wherever I go!
