Day 16 ~ Cook Books

One of the best decisions I ever made in the organizing department was to donate all my cook books.  I used to have a bunch.  They took up all sorts of space.
And now?
I have this.

The thing was, I'd use 3 recipes from one book, 2 from another, and in a huge stack of books maybe only 20 or 30 pages were actually ever getting looked at.  
So one summer I made it my project to write out all my favourite recipes on cards.
I colour coded various categories.

And now this is the amount of space my recipes take up.  I have some loose papers in there - recipes I've printed off the internet or ripped from magazines.  When I have some spare minutes I'll write them on cards too.  I have lots of extra cards so that I can keep on adding new recipes whenever I need to.
