I posted this back in June and actually got a couple of recommendations and a an e-mailed answer! Might fit you too. It's post #887.

"Years ago, I bought an expandable file--whatever kind you want in any office supply store. I relabeled the pockets according to ingredients--like, I knew I wanted to make something with the hamburger I had on hand, so one pocket was hamburger, another chicken, another vegetable dishes, cakes or potato recipes. Label according to how YOU look for things. What I lked about this is if I clipped something, I just threw it in the file! If I made it later and didn't like it, i just threw it away! i hadn't spent any time copying it onto a card or putting it in a plastic sleeve in a binder or anything like that. all sizes fit. Last year I had to expand to clear rubber maid boxes when I outgrew my two expandable files (after 26 years), but it's essentially the same system. I have made many subcategories over the years. If I behave myself and put things away after I use the recipe I can find anything in a minute or less. Of course the ones I use the most are in the front of each section. For a few of our favorites, such as my wonderful Alfredo sauce, I have copies in two different categories--Pasta section and Sauces section."
