How do you store your recipes?

One of my projects for this summer is to find some way to organize the hundreds of recipes that I have (some I have tried and loved and some I still need to try). How do you organize yours? Do you store them on your computer, cute recipe box, binder? I need some fun way to do it so it keeps me motivated to keep up with it. :)

i have an old Longaberger basket recipe box with a wooden lid...


and just the other week, i put all the recipes we have printed out or pulled from magazines into protective sleeves and into a binder...


a lot of the time, though, we find recipes online, and just look at them online on our laptop or netbook while we're making them...

I have a whole bunch on my computer and some on cards I keep in a box. I need to go through and put them all in one place though. Possibly a binder with protective sleeves.

I have a book form Williams sonoma, it was a gift from dh with my name on it. I hand write the recipe on the cards and slip then in the protectors. It's nice cuz I change recipies sometimes, add things and such so it's there for next time!

Started a collection in a binder with protective sheets. Also have a recipe book that was an engagement gift from DH's aunt, for "family recipes".

All of mine are on my computer and backed-up Just in case. The nice part about having them on my computer is I can share them and change them when I experiment. I have them filed under fav's and new.

I am still working on mine, but here it is so far..


I bought a binder from walmart and had my husband (graphic designer) print me vinyl 'recipe' stickers to stick on the front/side :)


*sorry for the crappy iphone pics*


My kitchen is turqouis and green so this is fun and matches :) All I lack, is some dividers and a few finishing touches. I plan on having my husband design some fancier pages (apps/salads, breakfast, etc.) but this will do for now


I have the recipes in clear page protectors to protect from tearing/spills/splashes. I have a collection of printed pages, cutouts from magazines, my mom's recipe cards and a few that I actually gave my mom when I was in 2nd grade (gotta love the handwriting lol)

I write mine onto index cards and laminate them to protect from spills. I store them in a small box with dividers.
