How to Organize Recipes as a Homeschool Mom & Recipe Binder Freebie

Do you have recipes in all sorts of places in hopes of being ready to cook for your family? Figuring out how to organize recipes can overwhelm you, especially as a homeschool mom.How to organize recipes with a kitchen binder

Homeschooling is tough enough, but add cooking three meals a day, and you can lose your mind trying to stay organize. So, I made a video sharing how to organize recipes and how I tried to stay on top of all the cooking a homeschool mom has to do.

It’s nothing fancy…in fact they are all very easy ways you can get your recipes organized.

I mention a recipe binder in the video. There are a variety of ones you might use to organize your recipes, but here’s one you can get for free right now. When you enter to win the Build Your Bundle Giveaway (over $5000 in prizes), you will receive the Kitchen Binder which can help you with how to organize recipes.

If I were you . . .

Once you get your Kitchen Binder, print a couple copies of page 3. Use your printouts to write down your go-to meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  You’ll have 7 breakfast ideas, 7 lunch ideas, 7 dinner ideas. That’s a huge help on a bad day. When you’ve had a horrible day, choose one of the meals on your “Go-To” List.

How to organize recipes with Go-To meal ideas

As I mentioned in my earlier post about Easy Family Meal Ideas for Homeschoolers, I don’t like to make lunch. Never have. Never will. So, I made a list of lunches that did not include sandwiches.  I used that list many days to fix our kids’ lunch.

Another idea to use your Kitchen Binder is to make a gift for your mom (Mother’s Day is tomorrow) or a friend. Print out 10 recipe pages. Write out your family favorites and put them in a pretty binder. As I mentioned on the video, I made a Recipe Book of family favorites for Ashley and Gentry when they got married.  It’s an easy way to collect family recipes.

I know it takes some time for you to write, so share the writing with your kids. Let them copy recipes for their Copywork. It’s a creative way to let them practice penmanship. They can each chose 3 of their favorite meals and copy those recipes.

Remember, if you grab your Kitchen Binder before May 15th, you’ll also receive a $5 Coupon you can use on The Build Your Bundle Sale
