    Does anyone know where you usually go to buy those little recipe cards (blank) in a box?

    I really need to write these all down and have in the kitchen.

    Any stationery store will have them, I think I got mine from Officeworks. You'd probably find them at Big W or similar too.

    I have some templates for microsoft word and publisher? I usually print them off and write in them. I can email them through if you want. I have those clear plastic folders and I use those for the cook books - just wipe clean

    I have all that on my computer, but never even gave it a thought! Of course, Angela, I've even got tons of different coloured cardboard printing paper here.

    You are soooo good.
