Free for All Friday No. 121

Today's FFAF is brought to you by the letter...F!

Some Filofax leaves are all FUN and GAMES. For example, they have games like Noughts and Crosses (Tic Tac Toe), word puzzles, and so on. The City Dweller pack contains some game leaves.

Of course, printed games aren't the only way you can have fun with a Filofax. When my nephew was a toddler, he thought it was fun to pull my Pocket Filo out of my handbag and bang it on the floor.

What's the most FUN you've ever had with (or because of) a Filofax?

Of course, this being FREE for all Friday, you're free to be inspired by other F words as well.

  1. I used to have hours of fun with ny Funfaxes when I was a child - that's where my Filofax obsession started!

  3. F for fantastic! I have acquired an amethyst Deco in pocket and personal sizes with colour matched papers fro maudiemade on Etsy (found through this site). The pocket is my book filofax and the personal is my everyday one. I love both of them.

  4. Hey this is slightly off the Fun topic, but if you haven't seen this month's Carnival of Pen Pencil and Paper yet, go check it out!

    Steve's excellent post on Time Management - Diary Options is featured, as is my recent post about my Moleskine weekly notebook. There's loads of other great posts about paper and writing implements, something fun to read on a Friday! :)

  5. My F is for Fashion. Since I have apparently found a home with Filofax Pocket, all I do now is change out the binders for color/texture based on what outfit or handbag I will be wearing!

    That sounds horribly vapid, I know, but it has been FUN accumulating Pocket Filos (of which my collection was lacking) to switch in and out of : )

    Lame. But that's how I'm rollin' today!

  6. F is for frustration! I am not sure if I should be posting this on FFAF or as a question on Wednesday!...but here goes. I am really really bored with the BORING week to 2 page view from Filofax. I love the layout, blank pages, big blocked sections for each day BUT hate the boring font and colour. I have been using a Filofax for over 20 years now and that is a long time with exactly the same pages. I have checked out DayTimer which are heavenly with their colours and font/patterns etc but I don't like the lines or times printed on them. Are there any other sites out there that offer different diary refills? I use a personal size btw. Thanks!!

  8. Surely F is for Vive La Filofax France Steve!!!!

  9. Yes Viva la Filofax France... indeed..

    But my F is for Fascination. I've become fascinated by the way our readers all use their Filofax organisers for different things. You are a great source of ideas and inspiration to others I think.

    But to sign off I would like to have some thoughts for any of our readers in Japan today. I know at least one reader there and I'm pleased to say that she and her family are safe.

    My thoughts are with everyone there at the moment, hoping you are safe and well.

  12. F is for fabulous, like the Deco and the lovely Philofaxy community :-)

    My prayers go out to those in Japan who are dealing with such tragedy.

  13. @livelovelaugh There are lots of options for the Personal (B6) size. Check out our Links page for some of the manufacturers.

  14. Livelovelaugh, I have used the Serenity from DayTimer and although it does have lines and times, the lines are very faint and the times are down the left side where they can be ignored. I love the Flavia inserts, but don't like the times right down the middle of each day. I solve it by having my monthly and address sections from Flavia -- then it doesn't matter what the weekly is since I have my color "fix"!

  15. Laurie- I love it. Indiana Jones goes to Indonesia. I'm happy that you like it and hope this portable little cutie serves you well.

  16. I too would like to add my prayers and thoughts to the people of Japan today, and those who have relatives, friends and colleagues in the earthquake regions.So glad that Philofaxy friends and their families have checked in safe so far Steve.
