I mentioned this purchase a few months ago in a post when I had just bought my Slimline Finsbury. Well since then it's been in use everyday. As there have been a few comments recently about how to use a Filofax as your wallet I thought I would do a post with some pictures.
This first picture shows the inside front, which has six card slots and a further full height slot behind them. I use a Pentel 205 mechanical pencil in this organiser, as the diary section is used for my appointments.
Note how it lays flat... no bluetac!
I'm using a page a day which is more than enough space for the number of appointments I have to keep. I jot things down in here on a regular basis.
I keep track of my car share too, who is driving out of the three of us to work each day.
I use To Do lists and lined paper quite a bit, occasionally slipping either adjacent to my week, so I have the week and the todo list in view at the same time.
I'm not heavy on GTD, but this works fine for me.
At the back I have my contact phone numbers again entered in pencil so that I can make changes to these easily.
The back cover pocket holds my drivers licence, any paper money, a book of postage stamps, and when abroad my passport. Note how the back cover doesn't quite lay flat, it doesn't have the additional weight of all of my cards that sit in the front cover pockets.
The only thing I've not found an answer to yet is loose coins. Any ideas that would compatible with a slimline?
[Update] I've now added the Change Holder for coins, see this post
