Tackle it Tuesday - Recipes and the fridge

Tackle It Tuesday Meme



After I commented over on Laura’s post, I realised that I hadn’t sorted through my recipe file box and my household organising file for probably a year.

I am usually very good about throwing away paper so there's not very much to start with but it was still irritating me so I had to get stuck in.

I also stick recipes up so I'll have them handy to try out. Like this...


Above the recipe box, I used to keep my menu plans and other stuff because my fridge was so full.


This is my recipe "box" that I keep next to the microwave. A limited space forces me to declutter if things get out of hand.

And then here's my fridge, with a million and one fridge magnets, old photos, lists of this and that (like the 10 best feel-good songs ever, courtesy of my husband LOL), generally, a mess.

After



Here is all the paper I decluttered from the mug section, fridge, recipe books and side cupboard.


And this is what I did with all the loose recipes - I stuck them on an A4 page before putting them in a flipfile.

Great tackle! I too have recipes I clip everywhere! I need to get them written down in my books, to decluter.

Have a great Tuesday!

You've done a great job - I'm inspired to do something about my fridge door now. I collect tourist fridge magnets (daggy I admit, lol!)
Have a great week!

That looks great! Sometimes I have to clear the fridge of all the papers that somehow find their way on the front too!

Everything looks great! It is amazing how fast paper clutter can pile up.

Great tackle job! I really need to tackle my recipes too - they're not on my fridge, but in several other places! I need to quit collecting until I get it under control!
