http://www.clutterdiet.com/freetips Get organized with home organizing tips from professional organizers at The Clutter Diet. Take the stress out of dinner time (or any cooking time) by organizing all of your best recipes from places like Food Network. You can put all of your recipes in one organized binder, so great hassle-free food is just a step away. Use sheet protectors and photo sleeves for a custom fit for your recipe. Plus you can donate all of those cookbooks you rarely use and clear out more kitchen clutter. These Clutter Video Tips are posted frequently here on our clutterdiet organizing channel. You can search Twitter for #ClutterVideoTip also to find comments on our organizing tips. Lorie Marrero is the creator of ClutterDiet.com and the author of The Clutter Diet: The Skinny on Organizing Your Home and Taking Control of Your Life. Lorie also serves as the national spokesperson for Goodwill Industries International and ambassador of the Donate Movement.

Hey, it's Lorie Marrero and today's Clutter Video Tip is about organizing recipes. Now there are lots of ways to do this, so what I'm going to do is take you on a tour of my own recipe binder, as well as give you some other tips about using your cookbooks and your recipes.

I like to use binders for several reasons. One is that they accommodate all different sizes of clippings and index cards and print-outs and everything that we have nowadays. So I really like having photo pages so I can slip in index cards and recipe clippings from [POP] a magazine. I also like having full-sized sheet protectors that will accommodate a print-out from an on-line recipe. And then I also want to point out that when I have a cookbook that I only use one or two recipes out of, I actually just make a photocopy of those one or two recipes, put it into my binder, and then I donate the cookbook so it doesn't take up [POP] space on my shelf.

All of this is divided up with over-sized dividers that are made to extend beyond the edge of the sheet protector so that you can still read your tabs.

And finally, for cookbooks that you do use frequently, like this one that my friend Aviva wrote [POP], I suggest using post-it notes to hold your place for recipes that you either really like or that you [POP] want to try. So I'm sure Aviva's getting a huge kick out of how many post-it notes I have on her book.

So what are you doing with your recipes? If you need some help, go and get it on-line with our expert team at clutterdiet.com or just sign up for our free tips at http://www.clutterdiet.com/freetips.

See you next time, and may you always be happy and grateful for having more than enough.
