- Plastic box with tabbed dividers - it would get stuffed quickly and the top wouldn't close properly. =(
- Binder with tabs and sheet protectors - larger capacity for recipes. =) The sheet protectors were pricey and it never fit nicely on my cookbook shelf =(
- Filing them on the computer - good idea in concept because you aren't wasting printer paper. =) How many of us want the laptop in the middle of a hot, messy kitchen? =(
Wouldn't this be a fun project to do with a budding young homemaker this summer? You could make a day of it. =)
A trip to a thrift shop or two for the photo album. Follow that up with a quick jaunt into Wal-Mart for the stick on tabs. Make sure you put on your blinders or you might get sucked in to the WM time warp and not come out until supper time!!! LOL. If you don't already have them, buzz into Michael's and pick out the prettiest recipe cards you can find in the $1 section. They usually have several styles from which to choose. On your way home, stop at McDonald's for $1 Hot Fudge Sundaes, so that you will be well nourished for your creative afternoon. =) Put on some nice music and enjoy a nice chat while you work together.
I would love to see pictures of your finished Frugal Recipe Binders so send them to erin1978 at gmail dot com.
