  1. Bonjour,
    J'ai une question, j'utilise les pages Day planer sans date et c'est moi qui écrit les dates, derrière, il y a une page de Notes, mais, j'arrive pas à me décider si j'utilise la page de notes de derrière ou la page de note qui est à gauche? Comment est-ce que vous feriez? Merci.
    Traduction:Hello,
    I have a question, I use Day pages glide undated and it is I who writes dates, behind, there is a page of Notes, but, I manage not to decide if I use the page of back notes(marks) or the page of note which is to the left? How you would make? Thank you.

    1. Un traduction par Google, peut-être?

      "Hello. I have a question. I use undated Day Planner pages on which I write the dates myself. On the back is a page of notes. I can't decide whether to use the notes on the back, or whether to use the notes page on the left (on the back of the previous day). What would you do? Thanks!"

      I always prefer to have the day - or week - as a single view rather than constantly turning pages over. Some people prefer to have everything about that day (or week) on a single sheet for better archiving.

    2. If my dated page was on the right I would use the page on the left for my notes so the notes would relate to the date. I think it would be confusing to have a dated planner and notes on one view which do not relate to the same time period.

    3. I agree with JanieB63. I like to have any Notes opposite the day I am currently on. Flipping back and forth would not last long with me.

  2. Has anyone set up a Bullet Journal in their Filofax? If so, how? I mean, in a bound planner, the pages are static.
    I'd appreciate anyone's help!

    1. I did a post on this last month http://philofaxy.blogspot.com/2013/09/bullet-journallingplaning-in-your.html
      I would think you could modify the system to suit a Filofax, in terms of page numbering and indexing if you have pages say 26 27 28 and you need to interleave a page say between 26 and 27 number it as 26.1 or similar.

  3. Does anyone know what the initials JFW mean? They are on all my Filofaxes, hidden either under a flap or on the clasp.

    1. It is a quality control indicator, the letters vary depending on the date of manufacture, possibly the the location of manufacture etc.. 'Cracking the code' might take some time... ;) I was told 'You will never crack the code' nothing like a challenge is there!

    2. My Malden says...LBY. I would have never looked and never known...gotta check the rest of them! :)

    3. Initials of the person who did the Quality Control check? I've come across that on other things before now!

  4. I have printed out a few pages in color from limetree and other websites, but I'm not loving the idea of printing out months of calendar pages. Nor am I very good at getting it right - printed on both sides. SO, my question is -- are there pages to purchase, already printed, that are cute or colorful that coordinate with the filofax rings?

    1. Life is crafted, cute organizing are just a couple of stores on etsy. I would do a search on etsy for filofax, there are quite a few sellers that do pre printed inserts.

    2. Check out some of the blogs on the "Links" page. There are quite a few people who create some really nice pages.
