    Hi,
    Was just interested to know how people keep their slimming world recipes together? I've got a few from magazines, from here, from class and have scraps of paper everywhere. I need a system to keep them together - I guess just a folder would work but just wondered if anyone else had different ways of doing it?

    I picked up a lovely hard back a4 notebook from the pound shop and keep mine altogether in there. Some I write in, others cut out from magazines, printed from here etc I stick in. I then add my own notes, alterations etc plus our favourite meals and menu plans. Its fast becoming a very well used resource!

    I bought some Display Books from Tesco. When I got them they were 3 for the price of 2, but I don't know if that is still the case. I have some with bright pink covers and some with bright turquoise, so even I can't lose them!

    They are files containing 20 clear pockets - when I cut the recipes out I just slide them into the pockets (they are the right size for SW magazine pages. I put two pages in each pocket, back to back.

    I have my recipes on index cards (C6 I think), ingredients on one side, instructions on the other, syns in the corner. So I can sort them by red days, green days, free, branded etc. Seems to be working for me. ;)

    and have them in A4 plastic wallets and then in a ring binder.
    All my own recipes i have on my recipe thread on here (*honey's recipes)

    If you count having everything stacked up on the windowsill as a filing system then that's the one I use! (Disorganisation should be my middle name!)

    I have a leather bound book with a fountain pen and write them all out longhand into the book as and when I try them.....
    I include a smileyface scoring system with 0-5 green smiley faces depending on how much I like the recipe.. or a red sad face if I don't like them at all..






    so far it's still empty :)
