Free For All Tuesday No 9

The answer is Filofax... now what was the question?  As usual let us have your questions.

By the time this is published I should be back home in France. This was posted ahead of my trip just incase I forgot/got delayed!

  1. Do you know when the new catalogue will be out?

  2. So many different options in the various webshops of Filofax:
    I´ve noticed that there are a lot of variation between the various countrys and their respective webshops.
    Could Philofaxy and its followers create some sort of archive in which you could get an overview of what sort of diary refills, colours of binders etc. are available around the world?

    For instance, a A5 refill is available in the danish webstore that I´ve not found anywhere else: http://www.filofax.dk/store/diaryrefillsdetails.asp?productId=2487&atb=1

    As well as the Finchley being available in different colours (some of them are on sale right now).
    It seems strange this, as I thought the internet had sort of broken down the national boundaries as far as shopping is concerned...

    Just a thought early tuesday morning. Good day to everyone!

  3. Hi
    It would be possible to put together such a file, basically expand the Filofax file that is on the Files page. But to do it properly it would need the co-operation of at least one reader in each 'Filofax' country. That way we could just update our own country on say a monthly basis for prices, what is available etc.

    I will do a post about this idea and we will see what take up we get with such a project.

    Thanks
    Steve

  4. Well, my personal amazona is about to come into it's own...

    I have broken my ankle, which means I am on crutches for the next six to eight weeks. I have a bound notebook for work, but I can't carry it and use crutches (it's A4). But, my filo will fit in my little backpack handbag, so I shall take that to meetings and put my notes in it.

    This is a warning to all Philofaxers - don't go running, people may say it's good for your health, but it isn't!!

    :)

  5. I really love this diary layout on the Danish site. It's so frustrating because the UK site do so little choice in this size. It would be great to see all the options with hyperlinks to the pages? However I can't really contribute much as I am UK based which is where we have the most info!

  7. they've just put new filos up on the filofax website, including a beautiful vintage pink personal malden just when i had bought a red one (in pocket though) i wish i had waited!!!! grrrr!

  8. Just received the Filofax newsletter where they introduce the Spring Range. Why is the Apex starring? In addition to being ugly it is badly made and cheap looking! Nothing like the Domino or Metropol or even the Mode unfortunately.

    Kateb I recommend you see the vintage pink Malden before buying it as the colour was quite different from the pictures on the website. I was quite disappointed. As I said before it was more pepto bismol and less vintage. If you are a grey person, the grey Malden is beautiful though ;-)

  9. Thanks for the heads up @kateb !
    I am waiting for the Vintage Pink Malden personal to be available online soon.
    I've just discovered a hole in my Pink Finsbury Zipped where the zip fabric and leather meet. :( I've had it for 3 years and it makes me sad to find a hole.

  10. Steve, I`ll be happy to cover Czech, Slovakia, Poland and even the Baltic (EE,LT,LV) :o) in case it would be interesting for you.

    I just order Guildford Compact from Sweden. Let you know when it arrives. Must say, swedish filofax person was very nice and very helpful.

  12. @Nellie Sorry to hear of your injury! Doing healthy things gets one everytime... ;) Take care of yourself.

    @Allison The US site has even slimmer pickings. Did you see the Danish site's lovely cream with spot color vertical personal inserts. Want!

    http://www.filofax.dk/store/diaryrefillsdetails.asp?productId=2475

    How early do you order your calendar inserts for the following year? And, do you wish they were made availble sooner than later?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yeah, the Danish site has quite some nice stuff. The A5 refill I mentioned earlier seems to me like the perfect refill. Week on two pages with room for notes for each day!!!

  14. I think filofax UK has sent all the interesting binders, colours and inserts to other countries!

  15. Last year I did some digging around all the global Filofax sites for interesting inserts and I think the Danish Filofax paper offerings used to be an entirely different company, which was bought out by Filofax. So, the Danish inserts are a lot different than what Filofax makes elsewhere, since they are essentially selling a different brand (at least w/r/t paper).
    Can't wait for the new binders to show up on FilofaxUSA (or at the very least, Filofax.fr) so I can snatch up a gray Malden and maybe one of the new compact models (which I don't see on the UK site yet).

  16. Grey Malden A5's are now on the FF DE (Germany) website, but not on the UK or FR site.

    And a question from me....

    Anyone know of a source of the Personal size notepads? Now I have a personal size Malden...

    My A5 and A4 like others came with a pad

  17. @nellie wow! i am so sorry! also, i will take your advice to heart. i just stared that couch to 5k program which i am doing in conjunction with some very slow conditioning for a triathlon. it is raining here in ny and i always get anxious about running in the rain and falling down and hurting myself.

    @stirwise: interesting info about why the danish site is so different

    @steve: no idea but i wish i could convert the back of my piccadilly to hold a notepad.

    Questions:
    1. anyone convert the back of their filo or an index tab to accommodate a notepad? my filo has a zipper pocket in the back instead of holding a notepad.

    2. anyone track their training/running/conditioning in their filo? if so do you have some pics or advice?

  18. For all you joggers, runners out there, I spent 15 years training for 11 months of the year to play American football. Now, whenever I get the urge to jog, I just set down till it passes. Do ride a bike, just keep track of the miles as a daily entry in my Filo. Goal for this year is 3,000 miles.

    Notepads are sold separately by Filofax UK (as well as FF Germany) - you may choose between ruled, quadrille and yellow.

  20. Thanks Iris, couldn't see beyond my nose!!

    Added to my next order shopping list. Thanks

  21. Oh Nellie, I am just so so sorry to hear that you are on crutches and in pain. How miserable for you. I send you get well wishes. I broke some metatarsals in my left foot, many years back, falling down the last few steps of a spiral staircase. Silly me!! And it hurt!!!! More annoying was not being able to carry anything, as you say, except on a back pack. Hope you are soon back up on your feet and back Filofaxing away. xxxx

  22. @crofter....i must not understand the slang there. what do you mean by "i just set down till it passes" are you saying you prefer to bike instead of jog after all that football conditioning?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks for everyone's good wishes! I will be fine, but it is very annoying.

    @colie Keep up with the running, it is a great thing to do. I did the couch to 5k too, and am now aiming for a half marathon. I don't think I will run in the woods again though, road running only for me - no tree roots to fall over!

    I find it much more enjoyable than jogging. I ride a recumbent, extremely comfortable, and I get the same cardio benefit that I would from running with out all the impact damage you get from the pounding your joints take from running.
