Three Recipe Boxes (and a Basket)

recipe box and cards, bright pink, image of unicorn

Recipe boxes are nothing new - but this unicorn box from ChristopherAndTia sure is! It's always interesting - at least to me - to see the many variations people devise for such a basic organizing product. The same image that's on the cards is also on the lid of the box. Update on Feb. 15, 2011: it seems that Christopher and Tia are no longer making these boxes - although they can still make extra cards for people who bought the boxes previously.

Over at Jocole, you can design your own recipe box, selecting from a wide range of patterns - or even using one of your own.

Levenger sells "tools for serious readers" - so I guess in this case the company means readers of cookbooks and magazines with recipes. Update on Dec. 31, 2010: Levenger no longer sells this product.

recipe basket

And finally, Longaberger has two different recipe baskets. Update on Feb. 15, 2011: I'm no longer finding either of these on the Longaberger web site.

In other news: I'm off on vacation! There won't be any new posts until May 3, but expect some great new ideas then.

Beautiful boxes and a basket. I am changing from a file to a book and when my daughter gets it done I will be so happy as she has been working on it for 3 years!!

I like the idea of using a pretty recipe box instead of a rolodex for phone numbers. Use alphabetical dividers and have nice big cards to write on. Good for those of us who don't have our entire lives computerized on our contact lists.

Cynthia, I have a client who does just that, and it works really well for her. I never thought about that option until I saw her system.

Marilyn, I'm still using basic file boxes - not sure what I would choose if starting over, but it's not worth my time to change.
