looking to make DIY Journals, need some advice! Answered

Ok, i'm looking to make DIY Journals, and i want to use 100% recycled paper, but the problem is it seems like its very hard or very expensive to get 100% recycled paper thats over 20lb. Does anyone feel like 20lb paper is too thin? Thoughts anyone?

. I don't think 20# is too thin. Works great for me. . Finding 70-80% post-consumer recycled paper ought to be much easier than 100%. Plus, recycling breaks down the paper fibers and 100% recycled can tear more easily.
