As you know I am working on a huge pantry organization re-vamp.  I have been slowly working on some organization issues and my recipes are definitely in need of some work.  So, today I am showing you my pantry recipe organization.

This post was first seen on Life with Lorelai but I wanted to share it with you guys as well.  There is a free printable that I think you will like and want.

I found this organizer drawer at a garage sale for about .50 and I am not sure if Peggy forced me to purchase it (which she does a lot and is ALWAYS right) or if I actually grabbed it on my own.  But…anyway, as usual it came in handy.

This is what it looked like before.  It was pretty dirty.  I gave it a good cleaning then took it out for a spray paint.  I have to say I thought I saw it smile!

Much better right?

It came with some file dividers so I used those grungy things as a pattern for my new recipe cards.

I have used an affiliate link below.  if you click on the link and make a purchase I will receive a small commission at no extra charge to you.  This helps me to keep my blog running!  You can see my full disclosure here.

I used Photoshop Elements and created a recipe card and placed three on a page.  I printed 10 sheets so I would have 30 cards to start.  I can always print more.

Now I know this size isn’t going to work for everyone so I created the same thing in a 4 x 6.  This will fit in an album or a photo box which can be decorated to house your recipes.  It also has three to a page for printing.  You can download these files at the end of this post!

After I created the cards I wanted some divider sheets so I found some fun scrapbook paper and created dividers for Main Dish, Sides, Salads, and Desserts.  Maybe I should move desserts to the front.  Anyway, I thought they turned out nice.

    Holy cuteness! I think I remember that file…was that from the garage sale where we had to force the kind seller to take our money?

    You did a great job, as always. Way to repurpose!
