I'm sure a lot of people already do this, but I organized my mom's recipes for her birthday a few years ago by placing all of those recipe cards and magazine cut-out in a photo album that has individual 4 x 6 sleeves. This particular one has 2 sleeves per page. I grouped them into breakfasts, beverages, appetizers, chicken meals, beef meals, etc. I just used those stick on tabs for the dividers and made sure to leave room in each category for new favorites. She loves it and uses it all the time. Now I just have to do the same with my own recipes

That's a very good idea -- I have mine in a three-ring binder in the full size (8x11) plastic sleeves, overlapping them when the recipes are recipe-card size. Except they've become a mess and I need to redo them, pronto.

Might look into the photo books next time! Thanks!

That's a great idea! How many of us have photo albums from baby showers that we never used? I have a few!
