How cute is this recipe storage tin?
I thought I would share with you how I plan the recipes on CakesBakesAndCookies and how I’ve got just that little bit more organised with this cute recipe storage tin.
When I bake a recipe I write down on a piece of paper the ingredients I use, the temperature and how long it’s baked for. I then take that scrappy piece and type it up and for some reason I can’t throw it away! I mean I have it saved on my blog so I have it forever. I don’t need to keep it.
Normally I’m a real clutter buster. I don’t keep much. I like a clean surface and to be able to find things easily – my kitchen drawers are all organised. I don’t have one of ‘those drawers’ but these scrappy recipes just never seem to go. I’ve done over 150 recipes on here now but here they are still clipped together.
At Christmas I was given a recipe tin by DotComGiftShop.com as a little thank you and boy has it sorted my life out. At first I was a bit hesitant – not wanting change and all that but then I unclipped the current messy storage system – a.k.a. a couple of clips that sit on my window ledge and et voila! Organised.
The tin’s design is really sweet – or should that be tweet! Sorry, couldn’t resist. I have the Blue tit design but there’s also a poppy, rose and apple design
It comes with these really cute recipe cards – so I won’t need to write on scraps anymore! There’s also a set of dividers for all kinds of recipes. To be honest I’m just glad I now have a place to keep everything together now and in the kitchen too!
I have a large cardboard box in another cupboard in the kitchen which is affectionately known as the ‘somewhere safe box’ as in “Where did I put my book/my favourite pen/the letter for school.” Oh I put it somewhere safe, and this has become that for recipes – my somewhere safe for recipes tin and I love it.
So, what do you do with all your recipes? Do you have a system for the ones you tear out of magazines? I’d love to know
