I actually have a binder of recipes - total cost $.99. Most recipes I collect come from websites or emails, so I can't see rewriting them, by hand, into a book, when I can easily print and stick in a binder. Sure, this is prettier, but I'll bet I could upgrade my Staples binder for way less than $45!

I really like this! As one of the people out there without an iPad or NetBook and who always forgets to bring my laptop to the kitchen, I think this is a great solution for me. I love that the pages lie flat and there is plenty of room to write in each page. I think I would use the photo section for a photo of the dish itself, not the meal with friends/family. I would re-purpose the 'shared with' section with a star rating system or wine and dessert pairings. Overall: I'm loving this!

I love a lot of the uncommongoods' journals - this one could be useful to some who still prefer to write things down - but they are ALL overpriced. None should cost more than $25 (or $30 TOPS), which is more in keeping with the cool and unique journals you can find at your local bookstores. They must sell since you still have them listed, but you'd probably sell a lot more if you put more reasonable prices.

Dumb. Our family has always taken pictures, and written notes in a school binder with the recipe. I have the notes from my grandmother, my mother, me and now my daughter is adding notes. I put them in archival plastic covers to preserve them,($24.00)- and the new 3-ring binder cost $2.00 at the office store. That's $26.00 for 3 generations of recipes, events and notes. How do you come up with $45.00 for something that won't stand up to kitchen spills?

I could make this for under $15. Digital is the way I agree, but sometimes I like to flip through the real thing. I would go digital first, print, and collect that way.

Too expensive for what it is. Could make this yourself with a nice ring binder and a photocopier.

loved the idea of knowing who might have given me the recipe, etc but way to high and not good looking and I really dont want to rewrite anything that might have been given to me--I would want to keep the thing that they wrote it to me on--or if it is a clipping, I would want to keep that...

Come on, Uncommon Goods. What is with your prices? $45 for a cheap looking binder with some pre-printed pages? You guys need to realize that people are getting more and more thrifty these days because most people don't have $45 to drop on a recipe binder when they can get a 99 binder anywhere and just drop in some pages of their own. Get with it, guys. You need to reevaluate your pricing structure.

Nice idea. Would be a lovely wedding gift - to pass down family recipes. However, it is too expensive.

Though it is priced a bit too high, as a person who loves to scrapbook and journal and pass things through the family, this is really nice. My daughters love recipes they are both in their 20s, and would LOVE this, esp. with all the journaling that goes with it

Yeah, that price is out of control. Cool concept, chronicling your life through your recipes but way too pricey for the fact that it's essentially a bunch of papers bound together.

My grandmother used to write down information...sometimes more "fun" to read or "remember" such as the event, who was present...and then even sometimes the food...not so many recipes, but that is now gone somehow. I like passing down info in this way. Many people still appreciate the written words by hand

Great for an extreme foodie, but I am not sure how practical it might be for most people, especially at that price.
