TIP 7 – DECLUTTER REGULARLY
It’s really important to make sure you are only keep the recipes that you really need – as this will stop things getting out of hand and overwhelming.
- Make sure you only keep recipe books that you love to read, or that have lots of great recipes in them. Books with only one or two recipes that you love should be let go of (make a copy of the recipes before the book goes).
- Have your tastes changed? – last year myself and my hubby quit sugar. I love baking and so had built up quite a collection of baking books that now are no longer useful to us because they all use sugar. As such we kept one or two (my daughter uses them) and have let go of the rest. Of course – I haven’t stopped baking, we just use no sugar recipes now (just as delicious, by the way!).
- Are you bored of certain recipes? – even your main RECIPE FILE needs going through every so often, because there will no doubt be recipes in there you no longer cook or like because you have made them so many times.
Decluttering what you have will make finding things much quicker, and make you feel more in control of things.
I hope you’ve got lots of ideas from this article, recipes can be an overwhelming part of your kitchen if you’re not careful.
They add to the paperwork mountain in your home, and become clutter rather than useful and inspiring.
But it doesn’t have to be that way – and if you follow a few of these tips you are bound to be using your recipes like never before – good luck!
