I needed some things printed for 1 of the GD's birthdays, needed it printed on heavy glossy paper. I was able to upload it to them, then just walk in a few hours later and pick it up. It was really cheap, especially with the paper I choose. It was either Office Depot or Staples. You might want to check into that.

Create a Gmail account if you don't already have one. Then copy and paste recipes into individual Google Docs files. They will be available from any computer anywhere.

You can also export bookmarks to a file and save it to Google Drive, which is an online file storage service that comes with a Gmail account.

Sometimes a recipe is buried in the middle of a pages-long thread that went off in different directions, which makes it difficult to find again. Rare, I know, but it happens

Or a library usually has one people can use. I would think used ones are pretty easy to find in a thrift store, since they often come free with new computers.

Dog have the word or similar software on you computer?
Copy and paste then. That's what I do. It just doesn't make sense to write things down anymore

I agree... I haven't written out a recipe in years... Printers are fairly inexpensive...

That's what I was saying. Rodentraiser said she writes things down, not me. I don't know whether she has Word - it doesn't always come free on a computer - so I was suggesting a free alternative.

I have a standard file box full of printed recipes.

Searching a database is far easier than trying to find that single page in the box. Well, actually the printed recipes I've used most are easy to find because they are stained and wrinkled, but otherwise,...
