Kickstarter Gold: What’s For Dinner Notepad

$43,520

A while back, tired of cooking the same thing over and over again, we created Foodie Dice—a set of 9 dice that you roll to get cooking inspiration. They’re a great way to answer the question “What's for dinner?,” but they’re even more useful when you plan ahead.

That’s why we created the What’s For Dinner Notepad. Using this notepad, along with a set of Foodie Dice, you can plan creative meals once a week instead of having to think about it every day. The notepad is universal, so you don’t need to use Foodie Dice every day (or at all) for it to be useful. Roll the dice when you need inspiration, and fill in your favorites when you don't.

Features

It might seem obvious, but planning your meals will help you: 

  • Eliminate last minute stress
  • Avoid unhealthy choices
  • Save time and money. (The average shopper spends 40% more when shopping without a list.)
  • Reduce food waste (The average American family wastes ~20 pounds of food per week, amounting to $2k per year)
  • And of course, never have to answer the nagging question “Mom (or Dad), What’s for Dinner?”, again

  

Two sisters from the Midwest, we launched Two Tumbleweeds on Kickstarter in 2013 with Foodie Dice. We were hoping to raise $7,500—enough to fund a small production run—but weren't even sure that would happen. We made it more than halfway to our goal in the first few days (we were ecstatic!), but then Kickstarter selected Foodie Dice as the Project of The Day, and it really took off. By the end of the campaign we had raised $156k, and Foodie Dice were featured on Wired, Fast Co Design, and other outlets. The excitement and interaction from our backers was amazing, and our favorite part about running the campaign was connecting with them.

Since then, we’ve created Mixology Dice (also launched on Kickstarter), several more sets of dice (including Dessert dice, Asian Bowls, Paleo, and Salad Dressings), and some other accessories like muddlers and cutting boards.

Mixology Dice not only provide inspiration for making craft cocktails, but they’re also a clever system for learning the art of mixology

Most recently, we created Hatch—a Notebook for Makers & Entrepreneurs, with the hope that it would guide and inspire others to bring their own ideas to life. Ok, also because we needed a place to keep track of our own ideas!

More than just a notebook—a simple system to help you take your ideas from concept to reality.

“Tumbling” around between different types of products (dice to notebooks) has its challenges, but it also keeps us engaged because we’re creating things we’re truly excited about.

 

If you already have Foodie Dice, you can pledge for just the notepad. If you don’t have them and you want to get a set, we’re offering a special package deal for this campaign.

 

 

 What's on Foodie Dice?

Foodie Dice include both a meat & vegetarian protein option (added after our original campaign), and can be gluten-free or Paleo if you substitute the pasta or grains

To make this campaign extra special, we’ll be including a mystery bonus die for every backer that pledges for a physical reward.

Special Thanks!

We’re so grateful to have the opportunity to be part of Kickstarter Gold, and for the support of all of our backers and the community. Thank you!

A big thank you also goes to Chris Robb and Ryan Burbank for helping us bring this video to life!

 

 

We're planning on using BackerKit to collect shipping info after our campaign ends. You'll also be able to add items onto your pledge, if there's anything else you'd like.

 

Risks and challenges

This is a pretty simple project—we have a printer lined up, fulfillment systems in place, and we have a great track record successfully completing Kickstarter projects. However, there is a possibility of delay with our printer, in which case we'd be transparent with our backers.
