Sure, I use these for the usual home bookkeeping tasks, but I LOVE using them for my recipe folders. I own a lot of cookbooks, and have read hundreds more thanks to my public library, plus I subscribe in print to 4 cooking magazines. However, cookbooks or past issues of magazines can be inconvenient when I'm looking for something specific. So (since I love reading cookbooks from cover to cover), I photocopy all of the recipes of interest and then file them in one of my folders. I have dozens! For example, as shown in the photo, "Eggplant." When I think it's about to be eggplant season at the Farmers' Market, I'll look through the folder and pick some recipes I think will work with what else I'll likely find--and can then pick up all of the ingredients needed in one trip to town . I have folders for "Pastry Dough," for "Root Vegetables," "Vegetarian Mains," "Spring," "Biscuits," and, of course, "Hors d'oeuvres." Even "Cleaning," for those tips I'm always clipping out of magazines. As time goes on they get dog-eared, and I'm always splitting them, so I'm always needing new ones. For example, what used to be just "Pastry" is now 3 folders: "Pastry Dough" (includes puff and phyllo), "Pies and Tarts," and "Savory Pies and Tarts." I love having lots of colored folders to play with, and I love the way they look on my cookbook bookshelves. These were a HUGE value for me via Amazon Prime: about 10% of the cost of buying a handful of folders here in the middle of nowhere--and I didn't have to drive for 45 minutes to hit an office supply store!
