So many recipes, so little storage......

Admittedly, I am a recipe addict.  Seriously, I cannot get enough of recipes.  I rip them out of all my magazines, I collect cookbooks, I print them out off of emails and websites, etc…

Well, I am running out of storage space and I cannot buy another filing cabinet.  It can be really hard to organize all these recipes and not forget about them.   There has been more than one occasion when I’ve been trying to find that “one” recipe with no luck.   

Well, Pinterest is the answer to this recipe chaos.  It is an online filing cabinet for my recipes.  You can organize them by category and have easy access to them.  Basically you just “pin” a link to the recipe to your “boards.”   Most of the recipes I’ve ripped out of magazines can be found online, so I am now beginning the process of going through my files of recipes and moving them online.   It is very freeing.     

I also love that you can share with your friends, and anyone else for that matter.  Pinterest is not only limited to food; there are many categories, such as decorating, crafts, fashion, etc…

Seriously, check it out.   You can follow my pins under Penelope Austin.

What is Pinterest? Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
