Recipe Mess

I love to cook. And I guess my family and friends know this.
I seem to have collected a lot of cookbooks and receipes over the years.
I just stash them in that tiny cabinet over my micro since its so small I never know what to put up there.
And its a MESS....
(this is after I took most of my stuff out)

I organized them by type of cookbook.

Just check out this mess!!! Thats all the stuff I print out on the internet and cut out of magazines and newspapers. (if you look closely you'll even see a recipe scribbled on a recept for car parts!)

 Toni's over at A bowl full of lemons is awsome when it comes to cleaning and organizing. I took her 21 day challenge back in January. I didnt do all 21 days but it got me started and on a good path to getting organized and clean!

She did a post on creating a recepie binder which I PROMISED myself I will do! I just have to! No excuses. (as I write this post... this pile is STILL on my kitchen counter)

I did put the rest of my cookbooks back in the cabinet all nice and neat.
Lets see how long it lasts.

What mess are you going to tackle?

Dont forget to enter my Purex Giveaway and stay tuned for more!

OMG, If only I had the motivation to tackle my garage storage closet. Any expectations of the Mr. finding the motivation to do it are out the window. It's funny how the organizing/cleaning NEVER ENDS!

Looks good! I don't even think I have any cookbooks anymore, although I'd be in big trouble if anything ever happened to my recipe bookmarks on my laptop.

This weekend I'll be tackling my basement and, if I somehow make it through that mess, my garage. Wish me luck.
