The box I chose was only a dollar at a flea market. It's kind of rustic, but it is BIG.
I added the word with a vinyl stencil & watered down white paint.
The box contained a few index cards, when I got it. Including two social security numbers! Yikes! That's not a good thing these days. It also revealed the origin of the box. Apparently it was used in some sort of book keeping in Winnebago County.
Now, I should have ample room to go through my cookbooks & copy down my most commonly used recipes. I'm sick of looking through 5 books trying to find that one certain recipe.
