Recipe Files

Was just interested to know how people keep their slimming world recipes together? I've got a few from magazines, from here, from class and have scraps of paper everywhere. I need a system to keep them together - I guess just a folder would work but just wondered if anyone else had different ways of doing it?

Trying again in 2012
I picked up a lovely hard back a4 notebook from the pound shop and keep mine altogether in there. Some I write in, others cut out from magazines, printed from here etc I stick in. I then add my own notes, alterations etc plus our favourite meals and menu plans. Its fast becoming a very well used resource!
I bought some Display Books from Tesco. When I got them they were 3 for the price of 2, but I don't know if that is still the case. I have some with bright pink covers and some with bright turquoise, so even I can't lose them!

They are files containing 20 clear pockets - when I cut the recipes out I just slide them into the pockets (they are the right size for SW magazine pages. I put two pages in each pocket, back to back.
I have my recipes on index cards (C6 I think), ingredients on one side, instructions on the other, syns in the corner. So I can sort them by red days, green days, free, branded etc. Seems to be working for me. ;)
I got a gorgeous book from paperchase which I write them all in and laminate the pages (im a very messy cook), I may think about sticking pages in though, good idea!!

I have torn out all recipes from the SW mags ( going back years, as i pinched my mums old ones...lol )
and have them in A4 plastic wallets and then in a ring binder.
All my own recipes i have on my recipe thread on here (*honey's recipes)
If you count having everything stacked up on the windowsill as a filing system then that's the one I use! (Disorganisation should be my middle name!)
I have a leather bound book with a fountain pen and write them all out longhand into the book as and when I try them.....
I include a smileyface scoring system with 0-5 green smiley faces depending on how much I like the recipe.. or a red sad face if I don't like them at all..

so far it's still empty :)
