Recipe Help....

I am usually borderline creative.. but I just cannot figure out what to do with my recipes.

I tend to find great recipes on the web (print them out) or in magazines (rip them out) and then lose them, ruin them, misplace them etc. I have been keeping them in a plain old folder, but it is completely stuffed to the limits.

I tried rewriting them all onto cute little cards but that lasted about eh.. four recipes, and then my hand got tired.

Does anyone have any great novel ideas for keeping/storing recipes that they want to share?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. By the way, I know most people don't like to comment, but don't be scared (in fact, I'm scared I'll be one of those bloggers who asks a question and not a single person responds). I am looking forward to hearing some ideas.

I have a big three ring binder and I put all of my recipes (from internet, magazines, etc) in sheet protectors so they don't get too messed up if I spill food on them! I also used dividers to separate the different categories. Once I start getting too many, I'll probably just have a binder for each category. I too tried the handwriting thing...not fun!

oooh good idea about the sheet protectors. I would probably need a whole lot of them though.

I use three ring binders, too. But I found a cool, new site that I'm slowly entering all my recipes into. You'll love it: www.tastebook.com.

Oh, thanks for the reminder Brook. I remember you mentioning that on New Years (I forgot.. I blame the champagne punch).
