  1. I keep rotating through 3 of my fav binders, but cannot ever settle on one. If I could mix them together I'm sure I could satisfy my binder dilemma?

    1. We all have that dilemma Trina. None of us can resist buying binders, but most of us really only use one at a time! It's even worse when we have different sizes, because you can't then migrate to another binder so easily.

  2. Does anyone else find Filofax UK 'products back in stock alerts' infuriating?

    I keep receiving the email notifications after midnight UK time, I wake up at 6am, click onto the product links and every item is out of stock! Are these email notifications "fake " emails? Or if they are authentic then Filofax UK should hold more stock. Why send the news alert so late at night do they only wish to attract non-UK buyers? Or am I the only person that sleeps at night whilst everyone is still awake shopping :-)

    1. Yes Jene, I had one this morning about a Yard O'Led pen I had been interested in. I've had a moan already about the lack of Filofax products in general this year, and I wonder what the future holds? I'm glad I've got sufficient binders to go into, and the resources to print inserts!

  3. A lot of junk or mass emails are sent during the night when the companies servers are potentially less busy. Someone will have composed the email and then set a time for them to be sent. I unsubcribe the email alerts from companies that pester me.

  4. Are TMI original sheets compatible with Filofax Personal?

    1. Time Manager (TMI) Original leaves have the same hole spacing as Filofax Personal. However they are 180mm x 110mm rather than 176mm x 95mm. This means they will stick out width wise in most Filofax binders.

    2. Thanks Tim. Actually more interested in the dividers. Filofax USA has not had 6 tab dividers in stock since July! What a way to run a railroad--they are going off a cliff. I
      am sick of them.

    3. Crofter, would you like me to order some here and mail them on to you?

  5. As I was designing by hand my inserts I thought of the Filofax A5 Time Management weekly ones. I like the layout and decided to draw a smaller version that fits in my Franklin pocket binder. I used narrow ruled notebook paper and made some changes to their layout. I wrote each day farther up and I moved the phone section to the left page. My right page has a long column for Priority next to the Schedule one. I have five lines each for Monday and Tuesday and four lines for the other days. I have enough pages for two months and it looks neat.

  6. Very interesting. The Time Management weekly is the main reason I'm using an A5, it is my favourite layout.

    1. Hi Maria. My pages look pretty nice. I used a pencil to draw the columns and emphasize the lines between the days. At some point I want to design my pages on the computer so I can print them. For 2015 I will use either these pages or a week on two pages insert with lines that I bought.
