I love collecting cookbooks, I treasure them and remember where each one came from! While I enjoy reading recipes online and saving them in my virtual recipe box, there is something about recipes in print that lures me! I have a full bookcase full of cookbooks and many cooking magazines, but I still get excited over each new cookbook I get. Recently I have discovered a few good and inexpensive ways to add to my collection.
Obviously you don’t get to keep the cookbooks forever, but it is still an awesome resource. They have tons and tons of cookbooks, just waiting for you to check them out! Take them home, skim through them, and copy the ones you want to keep. Unfortunately, the library is often overlooked. It is free, so take advantage of it!! (I keep a binder for recipes I have printed off)
I am a thrift store junkie! I go pretty much every week…and every week I find something cool that I need (oh, and if you are wondering, I always go between 2-4 to get a half price Sonic drink…I know, it is the little things that get me excited). I find looked over antiques, things that can be brought back to life with a little TLC, and COOKBOOKS! You will find both new and vintage cookbook on the cheap. Really, really on the cheap! I recently bought an awesome vintage Betty Crocker cookbook for about $.50. ( I am on a personal mission to collect as many vintage Betty Crocker cookbooks as I can…my birthday is coming up…in case you find any )
These are just two ways to find some awesome recipes on the cheap!
