UPDATE - Pay attention to the quantity!
I removed a star because when I reordered, instead of 2 tablets, I got one. That was in the description but since I had ordered a 2-pack before I didn't notice. The price is just a dollar or so off from that of the first 2-pack I ordered. I guess they went up. I will look for another brand next time.
I was having trouble finding the 5x8 spiral index cards I use to write down recipes and ran across this journal. I selected this size because it's roughly that of the index cards I like.
It has the hard front and back covers & this helps a lot since I use these in the kitchen for recipes
The paper is really good quality and holds up under even a semi-thick marker that I used on one page
The papers are nicely spiraled and don't stick together at the inner edges the way some cheap notebooks will
Even though the pad holds 140 pages, it's not too thick; I can write down to the very end/edge with comfort
The cover was hard to write on in regular ballpoint; it is thick and the pen doesn't roll over it easily. I ended up using a marker instead.
I know that the price seems a little bit high in some people's opinion, but I have paid as much for the index cards. The quality of this little journal makes it worth it. This size is going to fit nicely in the cupboard with my other recipe notes and books.
By the way, I'm using some lined and tabbed sticky note style dividers to label and organize the recipes in the journal. This makes a great little homemade recipe index for me.
