Recipe binder

This is one of my favorite organizational tricks.  Not just because it helps keep things orderly, but also because it helps keep me fed.

You know all those recipes you tear out of magazines or print off the internet.  And you know how they all end up in a messy pile somewhere in your kitchen/living room and tend to accumulate sauce or oil on them until you can't actually read the recipe anymore.  Get a three ring binder, some sheet protectors, put the recipes in the sheet protectors, load those in the binder and voila! -- instant recipe book.  Easy to flip through when you're planning meals for the week and easy to reference while you're cooking.  If you get anything on the sheet protectors, you can easily wipe it off.
