Recipes on My Refrigerator

For some time now my printer has been out of ink/toner and I have been writing recipes down on paper. I started to use the note pads you can get at the dollar store for this...I also use them for shopping list. I usually would write down the recipe make it and then just stick it on my refrigerator for later use or just to keep out of the way. Well one day I looked at my refrigerator and realized that they were every where. Here is a picture of just one little part of it but it was like this on all side (well except the back).

I also noticed that at first I didn't write the recipe name on the top of the paper. I think I did this mostly because I just thought let me write the recipe down to make now. I find it easier and cleaner (for my computer) if I have a hard copy to look at while I am cooking. I also usually save a link on my computer to the recipe if it is a keeper for future use. Usually when I want to make it I search the refrigerator for that paper again. I now write the recipe names on the top to make this a little bit easier instead of giving up so fast and writing it down again.

So the other day i decided to take them all off the frig and organize them a little bit. There are some that are just not worth keeping around because I won't make again. I am also thinking of just typing them up and putting them into a little cookbook for myself. I have so many recipes I use a lot that would make my life so much more pleasant if they were all in one spot.

Until I have the time to sit down and type all these recipes up I am going to keep them next to my toaster oven. The other reason for this is my 3 year old has been stealing them off the refrigerator and trying to color on them. Not that the extra little color would be a problem
