I purchased a file box that holds 3.5 index cards, 3.5 colored index cards, months of the year and 1-31 cards. I then took and made a list of all the household chores, hair cuts and yearly apts and seperated them by how often they needed to be done and assigned them by color. Yellow for daily chores, pink 1/week, Green 1/ month, orange every 2 weeks and blue 1/year. I wrote on the cards the chore assigned to the color and then placed them in the index box on the days I wanted to do them

Use same sized storage crates, numbered in order. Put an inventory sheet on top inside each box and also on index cards and include the corresponding box number and the location of the box. Keep cards in one location. When looking for something, refer to the index cards and go straight to the box.
If I find a recipe I like I put it on an over sized index card. I then add another recipe to the back of the card. I'm doing this so I can then take packing tape and very carefully lay it over the card. Takes about 3 strips on each side. Then even up the sides (not all the way to the edge of the paper) and walla a cooking card with two recipes that can be wiped off and used again.
