I got a cute binder, some dividers and clear sleeves. When I find a good recipe online I print it out and put in in a sleeve and add to it's section. The best part is I can remove the individual recipe while cooking so as to take up less room and the sleeve keeps it clean, just wipe with damp towel.
Every week I make out my meal plan on my computer, print it out and put it in the pocket in the front of the cook book. I then take all the recipes I need for that week and move them to the front for easy access and so I can refer to them while making my shopping list for the week.

Where I work we had a "healthy carry-in". We requested that everyone prepare a healthy meal and provide a recipe card. We then made a cookbook and passed out to all who participated. Many of the recipes could have been healthier, but having the cookbook allowed for some substitutions to be made. It was a great way to try out new foods!
