Free For All Tuesday No. 71

Tuesday is the day when you get to ask questions and we do our best to answer them... When I say 'we' that is all of the Philofaxy readers, they often beat me to answering some of the questions!  But that is the great thing about Philofaxy, we all help each other.

So what ever your question, no matter how obscure it is... Can I fit my Mini Filofax pages in my new A5 Filofax (yes you can!) or where can I buy xyz in purple in pocket size... then this is just the place to ask the question.

So don't hang back, fire away, and remember you can keep asking questions on this post even after Tuesday.

  1. Recently I bought a Cuban Zip A5 and am very pleased with it. This made me determined to go back to the Cuban Zip Personal that I cast aside almost as soon as I bought it. After reading Imsy I decided that I was not going to let it beat me and it WOULD sit flat because I wanted it to. I am happy to report that it is now sitting flat and although it is not yet in use, at least it is doing what I want it to do. I will keep working on it and it should be nice and compliant by the start of the new year.

  2. I am thinking of buying a Personal Baroque Filofax at some point in the future when I can afford it, to use as a work diary..... of course I need to get that job of my dreams first!!! My question is.... do they come in just turquoise and pink?? I seem to remember that there may be a teal one.... or is that just in my imagination?? I have seen them on the FF France site, which I can cope with ordering from, but want to get the right colour.Thank you for any advice. xx

  3. Not just a question but a personal observation....

    Just when I thought I had finally got my system fully settled down and running 'just-so', I seem to be having planner fail with the diary section of my Personal Malden (which I love). Basically, I just can't abide the week-on-two-pages 'standard' layout diary, which is the *only* available layout in cotton cream (as ever, thanks, FF). I really *need* a 'grid' format diary to be able to effectively see how my week looks at a glance in terms of committed/free time.

    I have in my refill store a week-on-two-pages landscape diary with appointments on standard, poor quality FF paper which is a possibility, and also a day-on-two-pages diary (also on FF standard paper) which I find gives me next to no perspective on my committed time due to the 'up close' nature of looking at a day at a time. *However*, I often find that the amount of information I need to carry around with me in respect of meetings etc (agenda lists, post codes for Tom-Tom, etc) can be best accommodated within this daily format. I *know* I could carry the agendas, and even the post codes, around on a separate 'agenda' list GTD-style - but I just like to be able to open the binder and see all of that information, for my day, in one place.

    So far I think I have a few basic possible solutions to this, as follows:-

    1. Bite the bullet, move up to A5 and put up with carrying a house-brick around with me all day.

    2. Use a combination of daily and weekly plans, with only the current week and a couple of 'future' weeks of daily plans in place.

    3. Use FF day plan sheets when I need to, to carry the extra meeting info for any given day.

    4. Look around for possible alternative diaries, which have a 'grid' arrangement, and which come on decent quality paper.

    5. Put up with it until the end of this year and then look across the hopelessly un-joined-up FF websites worldwide for a diary solution.

    6. Finally abandon FF altogether (I seem to spend so much of my time 'fighting' the system in any case) in favour of a properly-thought-out solution such as Time/System or TMI (a large quantity of which I already own).

    If anyone has any ideas on this, I'd be interested to hear them. What diary format do you find works best for you, how do you use it, and do you combine two formats to get perspective?

    Hope y'all are well out there....first day back at my desk here, after a week and a half off, so catch-up ahoy!

    1. Day planner sheets interleaved in your WO2P have a few advantages, I think. For instance, you can archive each one when the meeting's over, which will lighten your load but still keep the info for future reference. The process of moving the day planner sheets from your carryaround FF to a desk-bound archive binder might also be a good end of day ritual, and allow you to write any notes or reflections on that day's meetings.

      I like having several calendars interleaved in my FF - day per page, month on one page, and year planner, because I also need to see 'the big picture' as well as daily detail. But I also take finished daily pages out every few weeks, so the FF doesn't weigh a ton. That may not be an option for you.

    2. Well a Dodo pad uses a grid system and they have a new sized grid in the 2013 ones coming out although I have not seen them so don't know how much bigger that are but they are certainly on decent paper!

      I have found that a month to view followed with a day to a page works really well for me as I can see the overview for the week on the month page and then can add lots of things to my day as I need. Was using as my teachers planner so need quite a bit of info there per day (although I have just upsized to A5 purely for work so I have a bit more space and I bought a new zipped Holborn and had to use it!) worked ok in my personal but not with lesson stuff included as there was not enough space.

      Failing that, how about tweaking one of the templates on here - eg a month page, and making it for a week as would then be a grid system?

      Hope you find a solution :)

      Hm. I might have to try that set-up even though it sounds a bit messy. Both you and Steve have mentioned that layout... and I really want my personal size filofaxes to work.

      Delete
    4. Now David - you know you won't last more than a week in the A5!!!

      Have you thought about using the Day Timer diary inserts? They fit the personal and there are several layouts and styles to choose from. Also they do what they call 'hot lists' which are either punched or like a sticky note - the page size is much smaller than the personal page so you can use it to keep a list or other details for a given day, but you can still see your week to view.

      Delete
    5. Hi Alison :)

      Yes, you're quite right, of course, about the A5 - much too big to be a carry-around tool.

      Yes, I'd thought about the Day Timer inserts. Do they do quarterly start dates? I'm not going to buy a year's supply and throw half away.

      The other alternative, which I've reflected on elsewhere, is the possibility of re-tooling the TMI binder, inserts and system to a more GTD-oriented function, and I think this might b the way to go. As you know, I'm pretty much uninterested in appearances unless there is good solid functionality to match, and the TMI binder, while bigger than the Personal Malden, is nowhere near the bulk of the A5, and is usable. Also, it has that rather beautiful detachable wallet-thingy, which I previously speculated about dumping, but which I how think might make a good 'capture tool' (to use GTD-speak), while the main binder remains on my desk at all times.

      I might give it a go for a month and see what happens......

      Any London dates coming up for you? Time for a mini-meetup if you do!

  4. Week per page with notes is working great for me, but depends how much you have to write in daily slots.
    If I had busy days like you, adding day planner sheets would be my first approach.

  5. Hi everyone,

    I want to buy a Compact Chameleon to use as my carry around filo during the summer (I use an A5 for teaching during the school year). I love the personal size but not the weight it brings with it so I think a compact would be perfect for me.

    Can anyone advise me on the best place to buy one? I know Filofax UK don't stock them. Or does anyone have one they're thinking of selling or trading?

      I'm working on an adspot-post. But the ones I "remember" (still not decided about some, but I do need to sell a lot. I'm a one filo in use-type of person and switch between personal and A5...) are:
      Mini - Chameleon (spring green)
      Pocket - Finsbury (red), Malden (ochre - someone on FB has first dibs on this one)
      Slimline - Cuban (ink)
      Compact - Chameleon (red, Lady_Tamlynn has first dibs)
      Personal - Amazona (almond)
      A5 - Malden (ochre, the same person on FB will get the offer first) and maybe a Chameleon (black)

      All of them are in "as new" condition as I'm very careful with my Filofaxes. The almond has one pair of wonky rings if you close them in the wrong way... =/

      Sigh... I keep on trying to thin out my collection... But I also keep on bidding on more and buying new ones in search for that Filofax dream-team. *bought a new one on Saturday and another one today* ... In other words: I'm the perfect enabling victim! XD;

    7. Oh this is looking hopeful - does anyone else like to have the same set in different sizes or like different types for different sizes.( will be looking out for a mini and personal orchre Malden soon)

      I can sense this is becoming addictive - I thought I had gone over to the dark side of iPad and iPhone but the lure of paper and pens was just too much - hence my name

      So glad I found this site

      Delete
    8. Well, I have Malden ochre in pocket, personal and A5... and the black personal one and a grey A5. But it's ridiculous to have that many in the same style, so (as you've noticed) I'm selling some. I hope to add a purple Malden when I'm in London in a few weeks. If I like it, either the personal ochre or the grey a5 has to go. XD; My three favorite styles are: Malden, Luxe and Chameleon. I suspect I will add Baroque and Osterly to that list pretty soon. Not even going to think about the Temperleys, because I'm pretty sure I'll just end up ordering one if I do. T^T

      And stationery has a very special allure, doesn't it? :3 <3

  7. Hi there
    I'm quite satisfied with my black FF Classic A5 but I've always had a thing for the Caramel/brown Finchley A5 and now they have one on sale on the Danish store.

    How does it compare to the classic and the domino (both of which I own). I like the classic but find it a little too shiny and stiff - is the Finchley softer? How are the sides in terms of thickness? Any other thought that could convince me to spring for the Finchley only a week after I bought the classic - I got it at a super price on a thrifting-site (only 14 pounds)...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Finchley is much softer. Some have kind of "dry" leather, though... (nothing that can't be fixed). I find the Finchley A5 to have a slim feel to it (at least my imperial purple does). ^_^

      Delete
    2. Finchley's are very soft and beautiful - they pass the strokeability test with ease :o)

      Delete
    3. Thanks Yu. That means that the Finhley doesnt have the "chubby" feel of the Classic? How about the mesh pocket on the back? Is it ok or does it feel cheap and gonna break at some point?

      Delete
    4. Precisely. It's not as slim as my Luxe A5 that is more of a true compact. I don't use the mesh pocket very much as I don't like the look. But it's perfect for receipts, stickers, paper clips etc. I thought it felt flimsy at first, but I've changed my mind after I put metal paper clips in it and they didn't massacre it. :) can't say what would happen if you stuffed it full, though. I would ask organizedlikejen about that if I were you. ^_^

    5. Sorry about all the typos and weird grammar. (My iPhone hates me.)

    1. The malden just came out with a zipped version ( http://www.cityorganiser.co.uk/acatalog/Pocket-Malden-Zip-Purple-by-Filofax---incl.-2012---2013-contents.html ) why yes I have been eyeing it. Zips closed, has elastic pen loop, comes in pocket, sadly a little above your ideal price range (on sale for 61 at the moment, but there is the discount code that we get for an additional 10% off philofaxy10 so nearly there). This is the closest thing I can think of, and hey if you get it you can tell the rest of us if you love it.

  12. The topic of FF paper quality comes up a lot on here. Just wanted two add my two penn`orth (A quaint British English saying which I am fond of and use to vex our cousins ;)

    I just found a stack of my original FF coloured paper in an old binder from the late 1980s. One set is red, one is green. I compared it to a pack I bought last month in Neal Street. The difference is unbelievable. I know a lot of you are fountain pen addicts here, I:m not, so I used a cheap parker fountain pen to test it. Perfect. No bleed through. Thick, high-quality paper. I have to ask.........Filofax, what on earth were you thinking of when you changed suppliers? cutting costs is one thing, I accept that. But to reduce the quality of paper to such a degree is unforgivable.

    I wish they would listen to their dedicated users and take note. Most companies pay a lot for market surveys. Filofax has everything it needs right here. If I knew how, I:d measure both and post the difference. Rant over.

  15. We were promised new Flex covers, including leather ones. I've not had much time lately to research/ contribute but I notice that the USA "Pens and Leather" website is showing no less than 18 new different PLASTIC covers as available from next month. That's 7 in A5, 7 in Pocket and 4 in Slim:-

    Lizard Print Black, Lizard Print Blackcurrant, Lizard Print Ruby Red, Smooth Black, Smooth Grey, Smooth Purple and Smooth Red.

    No lizards in slim and no sign of any leather (yet). These are all additional to the existing First Edition models.

    The USA Filofax site isn't showing these but is offering 20% off the First Edition models.

    Anyone any news on Flex arrivals into the UK and the leather models?

    1. According to the German catalogue I received yesterday, "Lizard Print" will be made of leather. There will also be a black "Nappa" leather one (Slimline + A5), and a "Natural" in a colour called "Veg Tan" (Slimline + A5).

      Delete
    2. Interesting. At $80 they certainly ought to be leather! However the Lizard description on Pens & Leather is: -

      "Leather-look vinyl. Sleek textured cover with a subtle two tone effect, contrast stitching and double turned edges"

      Delete
    3. Just suddenly - I wonder how the Flex notebooks will look, function and fit in the Slimline? I don't have access to Flex out here, but maybe someone out there has tried to do this.

      Delete
    4. The images on Pens & Leather website for the Flex 'Lizard Print' look the same as the Luxe which in their new brochure is described as snakeskin print. Could have sworn it was listed as Lizard print not too long ago?

      Delete
    5. Hi Doris - the notebooks, pads etc. work exactly the same way - whatever the size. Naturally you need a slim pad to fit a slim wallet. Flex Slim is not the same size as Filofax Slimline but, as it's smaller, pads should fit in a Slimline Filo.

      Flex is a direct copy of Time Manager's (TMI) "Planner Wallet" from the 1980's (and still available from Denmark). However, Filofax have produced theirs in different sizes and added features such as the pen card holder.

      Saffy - I expect they've had a fancy focus group report that lizard print sounds more marketable than snake print!

      Delete
    6. The description ("leather-look vinyl...") is exactly the same as for the 1st Edition - maybe P&L has just copied it?

  16. Hi all - I just placed an order for my FIRST Filofax! An A5 Domino in Ultraviolet, on sale on the FF website. :) Can anyone tell me if some of the DayRunner or DayTimer branded Desk size accessories would fit that? i.e. plastic storage pockets and the like.

    So excited!!!! The decision on size & style has been WEEKS in the making. I was strongly considering a Personal Malden, but realized ultimately that I'll need the space, and Domino was lightest weight.

    This place is amazing. I've been addicted to the entire FF blogosphere for weeks. :)

      I was literally you like 2 weeks ago, lol. Obsessed with which Filofax to get for 3 months (Crazy? - maybe a little). Now I'm the proud owner of a personal Chameleon in Aqua and an A5 Finsbury in Aqua (and still feeling the euphoria of my purchases). 2 in less than 2 weeks.

  18. Thanks everyone, for the welcome & the question replies. Yes, I am very happy & excited to be joining the Filofax love club. ;) I just realized that if I'm honest with myself, I'm probably going to be ordering that Personal Malden also, more sooner than later, and just use the A5 Domino for work. Don't tell my husband... hehe.

    About the first question though... does anyone know if DayRunner/DayTimer desk size inserts will fit the A5 Domino? Just wondering what my options are.

    The buyer's guide on this site is really helpful too; I just discovered it. And I could look at everyone's Filo photos all day long... I LOVE seeing how other people set up their planners! Filos look even more attractive to me when I see them customized with colorful stickers, homemade dividers, colored pens & highlighters, etc. It's so much fun! :)

Coloured acetate lenses can work magnificently well.... even if he doesn't normally wear glasses, they can be prescribed.Some pupils I have taught have come on leaps and bounds as a result, but he needs to be tested by an eye specialist who knows about dyslexia and the coloured acetates.It may sound daft, but the redder acetate lenses may help him.... explaining why he has a preference for pink and the redder side of the colour spectrum.Hope your children have fun setting up their new filos. xx

    1. Hello Debimoje and welcome! :D

      I think my next filofax purchase (like after the summer... um yeah. I will never be able to keep that... XD ) will be an Osterly of some sort, so I'm a bit biased. ;)

    4. Thanks for that. I am slightly leaning towards the Osterley. I notice that Amazon has the Osterley personal at the moment for £86, which is a bit of a steal I reckon. Just trying to come up with justification for such a purchase as I already have my fair share and a use for them all. lol

    5. XD; I know what you mean. I haven't counted how many I own recently as I've been buying and (mainly) selling for the past two weeks. But I usually justify the purchases by telling myself that what other girls spend on make-up, fashion, bags/shoes/whatever, I spend on electronics and filofaxes. XD;

  24. Sorry it's technically Thursday now!

    I've just had a look on a certain auction site for an A4 or A5 filofax but they are all £50+ unless I want a bright pink one lol.

    I was wondering if anyone had one for trade - I have a couple of smaller ones that I can swap or might be able to discuss alternatives.

    1. Hi Hannah
      It's never too late to post a comment... although it's best to do it before the next FFAT comes out!

      We can put a wanted ad on our Ad Spot page for an A4 or A5 if you can't find something you like on there already.

      Details are at the top of the page.

      Regards
      Steve

    2. @ Hannah J,

      I' may be interested in a swap. I have an A5 Finsbury Aqua that I have recently acquired from a reader on Philofaxy but I'm finding that the personal size may be for me instead. You can email me @ kandygi1rl@msn.com.

      Regards
