Part of my path to organization (and stopping the on going list from running constantly in my head when I’m trying to go to sleep) is keeping great notebooks around. Here are my favorite planner, list book, and recipe index:
[Recipe book] [Notebook] [Planner]
I love the notebook because it’s pretty, but also has wide lines for making lots of lists (before I create a typed copy to hand out to family members…cause I do that.):
My favorite thing about the planner (besides the tabbed edges) is that it has both full month view and day by day conversions:
Which is helpful if I need to organize day by day appointments or activities, but also to put items on the list for months out planning.
After years of using this recipe folder:
I needed something that was not as clunky and was updated with recipes we don’t use. I love the Kate Spade recipe book because it’s cute:
But also super functional:
So I can stop being kicked out of Pinterest when I try to make bagels:
Which makes recipe conversion to my new book much easier! Happy organizing, planning, and baking!
