mine are now in plastic sheets in a binder but it's falling apart.
I'm wondering if I should just by a new one and do the same thing.
the problem is often someone pulls out a recipe and doesn't put it back in the right place in the binder. (I have teenage girls that also use them)

how do you keep you recipes?
I'm looking for ideas

I bought a little photo album and write my recipes on those hard lined thick papers that fit right in them

I had a binder with sheet protectors but I found it inefficient and bulky. Ended up getting into Pinterest and found 90% of the recipes online. Absolutely gamechangjng!

Any system will have the issue of kids pulling out recipes and not putting them back. Only thing I can think of is a picture album and index cards where they use the whole album instead of taking out a recipe.
I use a binder and leave the pages in it while I work

Use the binder but have your teenagers type up the recipes so you can reprint at any time.

I have a massive file with all my recipes, some in plastics, some without. They are in separate sections, soups, sides, etc. I plan my menus at the beginning of the week and take out the papers at the beginning of the week and keep them with my shopping lists etc and put them back a week or two later.

For the few recipes which I make time and time again, I wrote out on a paper and stuck on the inside of my kitchen cabinets next to ingredients, then I don't have to schlep the whole folder. That idea is from Yael wiesner's home organizing course.

If anyone wants recipes I have loads and I still buy more recipe books b/c I enjoy them.

maybe you can tell them that they don't have to put the recipe back in exactly the right place but keep a box or tray or something for all recipes to go back into when finished and then you will put back in the right place after.
