I don't tend to keep whole magazines because they take up so much space. I did keep several years' worth of Home and Freezer Digest. I used to love that magazine and was sad when they stopped publishing it. However, when I came to sort through them a couple of years ago, I only kept a handful of recipes. My taste in food and recipes has definitely changed over the years.

I keep recipes from magazines and ones I print out from websites. Like Honey I keep them in clear plastic sleeves in folders - I have about 7 folders now!!

I find I have kept lots of recipes and never used them, so now if I add to the collection I try and throw something out and replace it, so I won't have even more folders!!

I also store some in a Recipes folder on the computer and just print them off when I want them.
I am thinking of buying an iPad and using that instead of paper, but as Honey said it is nice to be able to make notes on the paper copies.
Still, it's a good excuse to buy an iPad!!

ive got a notebook and i write all recipes in that .try the recipe first though and if it turns out ok then it goes in my notebook ,i also note at the top of the page whose recipe it is and if its good or very good .also at the back of my book is info like oven temps and conversion pages like weights and american weights etc so they are all at hand when needed in one book .im doing another notebook now for daughter with recipes in for her house .to stop her taking off with mine.ive also been known to sit in a waiting room trying my best to tear recipes out of mags in the hope nobody spots me lol

Recipes

I print them off the PC, cut from mags, handwritten when I am asking Mum for something from her records, I have even finally chopped up a cookery book that fell apart to only save the recipes I actually rated - again kept in 2 ring binders in plastic wallets back to back like everyone else, & I have a black folder for savouries, subdivided into canapes, starters, mains, spicy, breads & misc, and a white folder for sweet stuff, subdivided into baking, pudding, dinner party favourites, ices & sweets. They are my cookery bibles, along with all my proper books & a space on the computer & another on the iPad - isn't it funny how similar we all are really, one way or another?!
