I know this is a old thread, but I have seen this same question on cooking forums, and other hobby forums.
The older we get the harder it is to rem stuff and especially where we put it.
I tried bookmarking, using notepad and saving in folders, I tried various other solutions.
The best thing I have found is TreeDBNotes
. This is a very simple database structured like the windows explorer file tree, and uses tabs as the main branches. Loaded with lots of features, you can copy a webpage right into a TDBN notes page, use the built-in editor to construct your own templates or modify whatever you are saving.
The good news is there is a free version, although some of the features are limited it works great for note db. I went ahead and got the Pro version so I could password protect tabs and create contacts. Again the free version is fine for bookmarking, note taking, storing a wide collection of whatever you want to archive.
Check out the features and give the free version a trail.
