Recipe box mania

I type many of my recipes into MasterCook, but I also use cookbooks, online recipes, and a three-ring recipe binder that I put my own cards in, but I was thinking a small recipe-card box would be ideal to collect those recipes for when you just need a quick meal, and want to be reminded of quick meals you've made in the past.

I had no idea until today that there are so many cute vintage recipe boxes for sale on eBay

This is the same design my mom had when I was growing up, and there are at least three of them on eBay now. It obviously was a popular, readily available, and cheap recipe box at the time. I was so tempted to buy one just for the nostalgia value, but I resisted. Instead I bought the design I really fell for, one made up to look like a Land O' Lakes butter box. Minnesota, hats off to thee.

I swear that's the same recipe box my mom had in Ontario in the 1960's.... I didn't know you could find these on eBay and that they were so inexpensive. Tanks, Gael.

Can you tell us more about this Master Cook program? I'm intrigued.

talk about nostalgia, my sister bought some vintage "little people" for my step grandson on eBay. He loves them!
