Rissa here with another great tip!
With all of the recent post on homemade cleaning and beauty products, I couldn't help but notice how unorganized my recipes are! As well as how tattered and torn they had become from using them over and over again.
|This is what happened to the recipes I use often...not a good look.|
I did a recent post on a recipe binder that I use to organize my food recipes. Well originally I was going to include cleaning and beauty recipes in that binder but I felt that they needed their own space.
After contemplating several options I finally decided to try a tool that we used in Cosmetology school. This tool is what we at Regency Beauty Institute called "Procedure Cards" which is basically using a photo album (with divided pages) along with index cards to write down cosmetology procedures. So I pretty much did the same thing and replaced the "procedures" with my recipes!
Here's what you need:
- Index cards (I used 4x6)
- Photo album with divided pages
- Your favorite pen / computer & printer
- Your cleaning and beauty recipes

|My little photo album. Got this from Tarjay (Target) for about 4 bucks!|
What to do:
Just jot down your recipes on separate index cards and slide them into the photo album.
You can type and print them if you prefer but I like to hand write mine just to get it all done in one step.
*Tip: organize them by recipe type i.e. hair, skin, face, cleaners, etc. to locate them better.
