Some years ago I made use of some extra large binders that were being discarded at my husband's office. I purchased clear 8x11 1/2 sheet protectors at Staples (see below) and used them to store all those recipes that had been piling up, clipped from magazines and newspapers. It is a great way to organize them by topic. I use a sheet of 8x11 paper in each protector and slide recipes in front and behind the paper. I use page dividers to separate recipe subjects. These binders have a clear plastic insert on the front and back cover which you can use for an index or decorate in some fashion. Or just slip your most used recipe into it.
