  • Copy them all onto one size reciepe cards? or Zerox the smaller ones so each page is the same size....

  • try a binder with sheet protectors. slip the recipes into the protectors and sort them according to what sort of dish it is. then use dividers to separate the sections.

    all this stuff is pretty cheap, and you can organize it the way you want.

  • You can type the ones that are on other paper and organize them that way.
    Or tape them onto printer paper.
    You could put them in a binder.
    My MIL has a few binders that have the drop in plastic things like a photo album that she keeps all hers in. She used to have them organized by type (main, side, dessert, ect.) with each type in a different binder and in alphabetical order from there.

  • trim them up so they have even edges, organize them into categories like "soups" and "main dishes" "breads" and get HEAVY cardstock and start pasting them to the cardstock. Get the clear sleeves from staples or walmart and slide the cardstock into the sleeves. Get those tab pages and a 3 ring binder and organize the pages by category and write it on the tabs and put it all into your binder. If your really motivated, you could type them all out...lol Then put them in a binder, or handwrite them into one of those "my recipes" books!
