Folk Magic Systems?

Hey, folks, I was hoping a few of you could help me clarify a few concepts. Over the last couple of months I've come to realize that much of my current path is belief and perspective and not so much practice. While that's not necessarily a bad thing I would like to balance some of this out with a bit more of a regular practice.

After thinking about it some I've come to the conclusion that at this point in my life it would probably be easiest to incorporate some form of folk magic. I've never been all that interested in Cerermonial Magic or it's slightly less descriptive name - High Magic. I'm just not all that interested in pomp and circumstance when it comes to practice. Most of what I do is based on circumstance, need, intuition and what I happen to have on hand.

I'd rather steer clear of religious magical practice such as Wicca as, at this point, I don't want to get confused between the magic aspect and the religious aspect. I'm not saying Wicca has no value, just that it has other aspects that don't work for me.

Partly inspired by Juniper's "The meaning of the word 'witch'" thread I thought I'd jump in here and ask what different folk magic systems folks here knew about and could point me towards. A reliable source to begin looking into would be a real boon, too.
