recipe organizing help?

This weekend went by in a flash. We did more of the same thing that we've been doing for a while now: doing things for the new house. We bought a pastel colored ceiling fan for Brianna's room, a garage door opener and some of the curtains that we want. We still need a lot of things. We have living room furniture and furniture for the den/office but now we're also having a family room and we have nothing for that. Also, we have a dining room set but now we're also going to have a breakfast area and we have nothing for that either. Oh well. There's no hurry for anything. We just want to have everything already.
I've been trying to get everything all organized for a while now. So far I've been pleased with what I've done. My whole vision of "there's a place for everything" is going well. The one thing that I don't have organized, though is all the recipe papers I have. I have some saved on my computer, I have some printed out, I have magazine pages, just too many things. So, here's my question . . how do you organize your recipes? I mean those other than in a cookbook. I've seen recipe boxes and have been leaning towards that, but then I think maybe a nice recipe scrapbook might be nice. Give me suggestions please.

I put mine in clear plastic sleeves in binders. I categorize the recipes for different meals.

I do that too! Except for the organizing part. Mine's really in random order. Nice that I can pull out just one sheet, it's plastic so I can clean it up easy, and if I don't like the recipe, I can take it out easily.

I retype all of them and keep them on the computer.

Or I post them HERE.

I pretty much just do mine on the internet and print stuff out or read it off the computer when I need it. I do tear recipes out of magazines sometimes though and I have one of those accordian folders for them ...

I do the same as foodie. I put mine in clear plastic sleeves in a large binder by category. I also have a section for entertaining where I put holiday type recipes or full holiday menus.
