Time Saving Tuesday (TST6) – Recipe Holders

Time Saving Tuesday

Join me for the (mostly) weekly Time Saving Tuesday tip.

As a single mother with three daughters, a house, cats and a job working close to 50 hours a week, the only way I can keep up my wonder woman persona is to find things that save me time. This can be a good thing when it comes to not slipping back into former habits that contributed to hurting my health. Over the years I’ve come up with lots of tricks that work for me and, thanks to Pinterest and the many websites out there, I see lots of others that I’d like to try one day. Each week I thought I would share either a tip that I use or something that I’ve seen on another site. Perhaps some of these will work for you to help save you time and make things a bit easier. If you’ve got a great time saving tip to share why not post it in the comment section below.

This week’s TST tip is to help save you time is to use one of these handy, dandy recipe holders.

I don’t know about your house but in mine the kitchen is an area of constant activity. With so many people coming in and out of the kitchen things tend to get moved around, covered with other things, spilled on, etc. One day, while checking out the blog The Peaceful Mom I came across her unique recipe holder. It’s easy to use and I already had one of these magnetic clips on my refrigerator.

Most kitchen cabinets have metal hinges so you can open one up and attach your recipe to it. My spice cabinet is at the end of the row of cabinets so it is the one I use. Not only does using this method hold my recipe up out of the way but the spice cabinet is open while I’m cooking which makes it easy to grab what I need as I go along.

Along the way I found another great recipe holding method that uses a clothes hanger….the type you get when you purchase pants.

Not only will the clothes hanger help to keep your recipe up it’s also strong enough to hold some of your recipe books as well. Both of these methods get your recipe up off the counter and hanging at a perfect reading height.

How about you? Do you have a favorite recipe holding method? Why not leave a comment or a link below.
