Isn't Organization Great!

This winter as the snow came down I began a project.....redoing all my recipe files and really organizing things. I went through all my magazines and cut out everything I wanted to keep. I already had so many files started in 2 smaller file cabinets but decided to move all these and more to one of my large cabinets. This old cabinet is built to LAST...not like the cheap ones we all see today. The drawer glides out smoothly and fits just barely inside my kitchen coat closet...perfect to be near the kitchen. The top drawer contains everything about tea and tea parties and also holiday cooking and desserts. This is my "fun" drawer.
I can quickly find what I am looking for...........


The second drawer is all my other cooking files - everything from Apples to Zucchini!


The bottom drawer holds gardening files, decorating, information on antiques, etc

Have you gotten organized lately?

Looks like you did a great job. What a timesaver when you're searching for a particular recipe, etc.
