Here is my new Filofax Domino, which I will use as my self-made
The cover has a groove where the strap goes, which is actually really nice because it keeps the strap from rolling around on the cover. At first I didn’t think I would like the elastic strap, but once I realized the potential for sticking papers into it I suddenly do. Also, it allows for nearly-unlimited expansion and stuffing, unlike a snap. This is good, because the rings on the Domino are big so I expect I'll be cramming this book full!
I really like the look of the inside, with the light colored faux suede and the bright pink accents inside the pockets. The faux suede is nice to touch, too. The Domino came filled with a week to view calendar with July-Dec 2009 and all of 2010. It has tabbed dividers 1-6, address tabs and pages. It also has a world map, which is great, a top-loading clear envelope, which will be handy to tuck things into, and a few pages of colored paper and To Dos.
I didn't realize before that the Domino is geared for students. There are several pages included in the organizer that are very useful for students. There is a Timetable page, for writing in your class schedule. I think I will use this page in my daily planner Filofax to show things that happen at the same time every week. Another page for students, the Course Record, is for recording your grades in each class. I'll have to think of a use for this one too because I like it.
There is also a semi-annual calendar which I really like, it reminds me of the ones Quo Vadis planners have. This would be very useful for students to record exams, papers, and projects due throughout the school year. Anyone could use this for any kind of project or future planning. I use the pull-out year calendars for this purpose now, but I like this page style better.
All in all, I am very pleased with my purchase! I haven’t been able to bring myself to take out the pages yet and put in my
