I use a recipe box for the "tried and true" recipes that I will make again. They are all on my computer though, and my recipe cards are typed.

Recipes I have not yet made are stored in word documents with a link to wherever I found it, or a cookbook I got it from so I can credit it properly if I blog about it!

Whenever I cook with my stepdaughter, I make a copy of the recipe card - and we take a photo of her, me or both of us cooking or with the finished dish. The recipe book it all goes into will be a gift for her whenever she leaves home.

similar to other people, we type out our recipes, save them on the comp., and print them out for our homemade cookbook

one other thing we do, which is a bit more original, is save cut-outs from store bought foods and menus....if we buy something we like from the store, or order something from a restuarant/take-out we like (large chains like panera, cose, chipotle, applebees, etc as well as good local places), we will cut out the picture of the food and nutritional info (from the carton or disposable menu) and put it in the cookbook....they serve as a reminder to buy/order them again, and as inspiration for home-made stuff

I usually save my recipes on my laptop. I crate specific folder in specific disk drive. For example, I divided my hard disk into 4 with partition magic.
C:\ for programs (windows)
D:\ for data, especially my work
E:\ for entertainment, such as movie, music, pictures, etc
F:\ for tons of recipes. Because I love cooking, That's why those recipes become special :D

You can buy or download free recipes program on internet that could store your recipes collection, so your recipes collection of more organized and tidy, nice to see and search.

I hope from my experience can inspire and help you

Handwritten index cards - the notes made in the margins as I've cooked the recipes are worth gold. Something about typing this stuff on a computer seems too clinical to me as well as downright inconvenient since it would require having a laptop in the foxhole with me, as it were.

computer and three ring binders; I do not have a terminal in my kitchen nor do I want to pour white wine on my laptop! But everything is both hard and e filed.
