Moving out on your own means you have to cook, all. The. time. Ordering takeout, and going out to restaurants can be very costly on your budget. After I moved into my apartment I started gathering up recipes that I loved all on my Pinterest account. This is where I have gotten the idea to create a recipe binder for myself!

SAVE FOR LATER!
After a while, I noticed all of my recipes were in different places to find. Some were on my Pinterest account, others tucked away somewhere, or screenshotted on my phone.
Now I decided to make a recipe binder so that I can have all of my recipes in one place. Plus it cost me less than $10 to make! So here is a simple step-by-step guide on how I created my recipe binder.
Things You’ll Need:
You can find a binder for less than $4 at the dollar store or you can find one on Amazon.
Here you can find the recipe template that I have made for my recipe binder. Which I am sharing with you for FREE! How cool is that?!

I can be a bit of a messy chef in the kitchen haha. So I placed my recipe templates and my recipes in a sheet protector. Just to save my recipes from getting dirty and for them to last longer. If you have a laminator you can also laminate your recipes as well.
This will help you to divide up your recipes by categories. You can also use the title pages in the recipe. You can also find these at the dollar store for less than $2 or on Amazon.
STEPS TO CREATE A RECIPE BINDER:
Step 1: Print your recipe template, and gather all of your recipes
Print off all the recipes you use during the week and/or if you enjoy the most. If you use Hellofresh, you can save all of your favorite hello fresh recipe cards and use them as well in your binder!
TIP: Organize all of your recipes into their categories. It’ll be a time saver if you have lots of recipes to get through.
Step 2: Place your recipe binder template and recipes in sheet protectors
To protect your recipe and recipe template, place your sheet inside sheet protectors and then place them inside the binder.
Step 3: Organize your binder
Remember that stack of recipes you have? Time to place them in their own categories.
Each cover page covers main dishes, side dishes, desserts, and so much more! Also, remember to place your dividers by each category.
Organizing your recipes can help you so much when it comes to cooking. No more flipping through the pages. Find the category you are looking for and boom! Your recipes are now successfully organized.
