Free for All Friday No. 297 by Nan

It's Friday! Time to comment on anything that strikes your fancy, no matter how random or weird.

Speaking of which, has anyone ever told you your interest in Filofaxes is weird?

(For example, upon seeing a picture of a Filofax tower from a meet-up, my brother said "There's something wrong with you.")

    1. Paper Mate PhD Multi is one. It's huge, and it has a stylus also, so those may be drawbacks.

    4. How about this Lamy one: http://www.penshop.co.uk/products/lamy/lamy-logo-twin-pen-606-ball-pen-and-0-5mm-pencil/

      I have the 3 colour plus pencil version for years and it is like new, and I give it a pounding at work everyday.

    7. I have the Zebra Diary multifunction pen / pencil with eraser under the cap. Very slim, nice weight in the hand, fits in the pen loops of both my pocket and personal filofaxes. I got mine from ebay - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zebra-Sharbo-Dairy-Multi-Pen-2in1-Ballpoint-Pencil-/400732979260?_trksid=p2054897.l4275
      You can get refills for this pen from Cult pens.

  3. My hubby told me a while back that I had too many planners. Now he as 4! Still not as many as me but probably more than he actually needs

    1. As far as leather organisers are concerned, "need" should be replaced by "why not".

  4. My kids tell me all the time that my interest is weird. They make fun of me but in a funny, sweet way. I only have a couple of close friends who know about my planner obsession. I'm sure they don't understand it but they don't judge.

  5. I don't talk about my interest in planners and inserts to many people. I told a friend that I wanted to make white dividers with colored top tabs since it seems that the stores sell only the ones with colored side tabs. I explained how I would make them. He said, "Just show them to me when you have made them." I don't think he was interested.

    For the pen and pencil combination, I have used an old Franklin Covey one that has two colors and a pencil. However it is not available now. There is the Franklin Covey Hinsdale pen that has three colors and a pencil. It is a ballpoint pen and you could place two black inks or two blue ones if you prefer just two colors. You could also check a Uni Jetstream pen. They may offer one that has just 2 colors and a pencil but I am not sure. I have an old one that has 4 colors and a pencil and it writes very well.
