My approach to this is as follows: I open the StyleSheet for the 
Notebook, duplicate the full set of Input styles, and rename them to, 
say, HiddenInput (Format | Show Expression is useful here). I leave the 
"master" style of HiddenInput to be the same as Input but I modify the 
"Printout" (and "Slideshow" style, if I'm using one) to include the 
following options

  CellMargins->{{0, 0}, {0, 0}},  

and also


if it is not there. In this way I can work in the Notebook, using 
HiddenInput instead of Input for all cells I do now want to see in the 
Printout or when I'm using the Notebook as a Slideshow.

To toggle between seeing the input and hiding I change from

  Format | Screen Style Environment | Working


  Format | Screen Style Environment | Printout

For an example of such a Notebook see the (largish ~5.2 MByte, because 
of the images, including imported JPEGs) Notebook,
