I recommend printing these off at the start of your course and binding them, even if "binding" just means putting them in a designated folder. 

If you print just one thing off, make it the roadmap. Use colored pencils, a pen, etc to fill in the steps as you move through the Uncomplicated Kitchen Formula so that at the end, you've made sure you hit all the important steps in the road to getting your kitchen life on track. Watching the steps get checked off keeps you motivated to get to the end!

Each section will come with its own worksheets, recipe lists, etc, and printing them out and holding them physically in your hands helps motivate you to finish the course.
