You need to think by which type you want to categorize the recipes. It can be either by food type, family member favourites or even meal type. Remember to make categories which make sense or by which you can easily differentiate or choose your desired recipe.
Sort the recipes
Next you need to sort out the recipes according to what type you choose in the first step. You can place and set accordingly on a table or floor nearby.
Discard what you do not want
After placing them on a table, you can get rid of the recipe cards which you do not need any more. You can also save these recipes and place them in a different category in the end.
You can place your recipes in alphabetical order in their separate stacks. Remember to keep stacks according to the number of categories you choose.
Use sheet protectors
You need to place each recipe in sheet protectors and then bind them together in three ring binders. Avoid using both sides as this will complicate things.
Next you should place dividers between each category and then label your categories.
Table of contents
You should make table of contents in which every recipe and their category will be jolted down. By this you can easily find which recipe you want.
