Recipe Organization HELP!!!!!!

What online recipe organizers do you use. I have tried a few…but don’t really LOVE one over another. Besides do I really want to rewrite each and every recipe? I would love to know which you use, if any. OR do you use a method without technology? Perhaps just relying on pinterest is the best…besides I have the app on my phone…I just hate having to open a website to look at the recipe….SEE????? I am losing my mind. AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH

I’ve previously posted about crock pot cooking, meal planning, freezer meals. With a super small kitchen I am always changing how I organize meals. I will be full time again in September and want to be prepared. Between blogging, working full time, preparing lessons, crocheting, and being a wife and mom meal and lunch planning is the worst.

If I don’t buy lunches for Dino at daycare, we’ll always have cold cuts, pb&j, items for quesadillas, grilled cheese, mini pizzas, hummus with chips, french toast and ham. They seem to be the cheapest meals. I tend to only buy items we need on a weekly basis, not wanting to overload the small fridge and limited space. I do buy extra frozen that are on sale and store in our other freezer in the garage.


I am also thinking of starting an Organization Blog Hop on Thursdays. Anyone interested in co hosting or linking up? What do you all think?

oganization buttonYou can link up any post about organization on Thursdays. Small spaces, large spaces, kitchens, bathrooms, meal planning, family, work, entertainment, cars, garages, daily life, holidays…it’s all included. Going to start it next Thursday.

So fellow bloggers…what do you think?

  1. Hi
    Wonderful post. I think you hop would be wonderful. Go for it!
    thanks for sharing with us at our Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop
    Angel @ sewcraftyangel.blogspot.com

  2. If I didn’t do FTSF on Fridays, I would so be interested in co-hosting, but I seriously just wish I had more hours in the day at this point to do more fun stuff like this. This new hop sounds so wonderful though and really can’t wait to hear more from you now on this!! 🙂

    • I so know what you mean Janine, besides you do so much I can’t imagine you taking on another thing woman. There just isn’t enough time to do all I want to do…if only we could just stop time for a bit. thanks 🙂

  3. I’m not an organized person. While reading your post – I was thinking – an online place to keep recipes? Really, people are that organized?????


    I would love to link up because it’s an impetus for me to think about getting organized – you know? I would definitely co-host – after September. Would love to help you promote!

    • OMG…there are so many online recipe sites…but then I forget or don’t like the mobile apps, LOL. Thanks Lisa, I do appreciate that! I need to get organized too…I do one thing and then something else gets messed up. With September approaching and me working full time I am getting nervous *sighs*

  4. I am an organize nut! I also do my recipes old school—I bought a special book with blank pages and sleeves and tabs for the meal categories. I print my recipes (the older ones are even hand written!!)and just insert them into the sleeves in the proper category. It keep me same that way in the kitchen.

    • I used to have this awesome binder with all my weight watchers meals (about ten years ago)…why did I throw it out? so stupid, LOL. Maybe I should go back to the old (non-technology) recipes…might be better. thanks for the ideas babe.

  5. For the blog I use Recipage. It helps me find my own recipes pretty easily. I like that because I’ve already modified them the way I want.

    I’ve got nothing for general organization other than we don’t keep much stuff. Right now with Jason at his moms it’s starting to look pretty nasty around here. I need him to come home soon to get my mess cleaned up. LOL! Maybe my husband should be your co-host, he’s got this stuff down. 🙂

    Oh, the new issue of All You has some organization in it. I secretly used your hop as an excuse to by the magazine.

Would love to read your thoughts
