I have collected a ton of recipes over the years. Everything from my grandmother's handwritten recipe cards to family favorites torn from magazines or printed from blogs. I had them all stuffed in folders and drawers but could never find what I was looking for - not very helpful when it comes to meal planning. I've decided to get my recipes organized and I want to share my DIY recipe binder & meal planning organizer with you!

Make Your Own Recipe Binder

Assembling your recipe binder is really easy. In addition to your printables, you'll need:


Start by printing your recipe binder pages. I recommend printing the tab page onto card stock so they are sturdy.

Slide the cover pages onto the front and back of your binder. Then slide each divider page into a sheet protector. Print as many copies of the blank divider that you need to create your own custom categories.

Cut out the tabs and hot glue them to the underside of the corresponding divider page. Let dry and you're done! Now you can organize your recipes by category and they will be easy to find when you need them.

Add a section for notes as well using the blank note page - print as many copies as you need.

You can use the front and back pockets of your binder to store your weekly and monthly meal plans, and for the blank recipe cards. Use the cards to copy your favorite recipes or to share with friends!
