Free For All Friday No. 94

This weekend is Labor Day weekend in the US, which is the unofficial end of summer.  Also, the academic year is in full swing by now for most students.

With summer at an end, it's time to dive into your autumn plans!  Do you have new routines, a new schedule, or other changes going on in your life?  Is it time to update your Filofax to help smooth your transition to autumn?

And as always on Friday, feel free to discuss anything Filofax-related!

  1. It's also Labour Day in Canada with school (elementary, secondary and post secondary) all starting next Tuesday. A lot of people will be at the beach or, if they haven't planned ahead, manicly buying school supplies. I work weekends from Labour Day to Canada Day so this is my last free weekend. On the upside - Labour Day is also the start of the fall fair season.

  2. Watching the progress of 'Earl' up the eastern coast of North America and knowing that we have readers there I hope you all come through this one safely and it's just a lot of rain you get.

    Stay safe people.

  3. Fall brings my renewed effort to use my A5 Finchley.
    After all the struggles this year with planners, I am making an effort to finish 2010 using a Filofax.
    I figured I will not order 2011 refills until I can convince myself that this is the planner size and style to use.
    Of course, that would also mean ordering a new binder and refills if this works!

  4. Just back from vacation and still trying to recover from jet lag (11 hrs in the air). US Filofax site has free shipping with $55 minimum purchase. Has anyone ever purchased the software? My boyfriend bought me the Filofax A5 computer paper but neglected to buy the software. How is it delivered? By disc in the mail?
    @PA3789, I have a A5 Finchley and use for work - slow start with it but now it's chock full of stuff.
    Steve, I'm on the East Coast and we're on a tropical storm warming, cloudy now expecting some showers but worse East of me. Nan and Kanalt should see more rain than I will.

  7. Last night I finally got around to watch "27 dressess" and investigate the identity of Katherine Heigl's infamous Filofax. Some bloggers said it was a red Domino, others seemed to think it was a red Finsbury. Well, they are both wrong. Turns out to be a Personal red Topaz (no longer availabe btw). The red is a bit orangy.
    BTW: I hated the fact that her love interest gave her a Blackberry to replace her "so 1987" Filofax!!! LOL

  9. hia all, any good tips how to store old filofax pages? I have few filofax storage binders, but they are useless, as you can't list in them. Thanks a lot.

  10. A BlackBerry to replace a Filofax? How could anyone DO that? I have a BlackBerry, and take it from me, it *can't* keep you organised. Its great for reading email on the move (like when I'm in London on business), but an organiser it isn't. I've tried every gadget, every software suite, every piece of kit you can imagine, and there's nothing that beats a pencil (always a pencil) and paper for organising my life. I use two filofaxes and they are the business. Whoever that jerk was who gave her the BlackBerry, she should thank him kindly but recognise the limitations.

  11. Jotje, Davidpopeley:

    My thoughts exactly!! They should come up with a sequel, where her BB decides to crash on her while planning some other life changing event, ditches her guy and dates a new one who offers her a Filofax as a present....

    as of what's going on with me: I'm moving yet again...and my trusted Filofax is helping me out ;)
