How to Organize Recipes

Posted by Alyssa on May 23, 2018


I don’t know about you, but once I figured out how to organize my recipes meal planning was significantly easier. My biggest problem was that I would find a recipe I would like, make it once, and never remember where I had found it. Finding a way to get organized took me a couple of tries, but I finally found a system that works for me! I thought I’d share the different things I tried and what ultimately worked below.

RECIPE BINDER(S) - If you like ripping recipes out of magazines then having a binder separated into categories will save you the pain of rifling through piles of paper each time you want to find a recipe. Start with one large binder, but if this works for you, you may end up with multiple binders for each category.

PINTEREST - This is one of the most popular ways to organize recipes. Create an account and you’ll be able to make a different board for each recipe type. You can get as detailed in your categories as you want and collect as many recipes as you would

GMAIL - Create files in your inbox to store recipes you find online in. Include a “To Make” file so that you’ll be able to remember recipes you’d like to try out. You’ll be able to keep things sorted neatly, and chances are you already are logged into your email at any given moment.

RECIPE BOX - This is actually what ultimately worked best for me! It was easy to find a space for a small recipe box and you can fit a whole lot of index cards in it. While it does require writing down recipes, I only write down recipes that the whole family enjoyed, which means I have a bunch of family-approved meals on hand.
