@JMaxB I use an accordion file, one with several pockets that I labeled by category (e.g., soups, meats, desserts...) Just throw in the recipe. I did once have a binder system like you are thinking about, but it was less friction to use an accordion binder. I do weed it out a few times a year -- only proven winners get to stay in the accordion file. I lived in a student housing co-op for awhile, and we used a box of index cards, sorted with index card tab dividers. That worked well too, for a collection of recipes that would have overwhelmed an accordion binder.
