Since I bought both my Filos at thrift stores, how do I determine when they were made?
Hi Kathleen, try: http://filowiki.robert-mayr.com/index.php?title=Main_Page it lists every filofax that has ever been made.
Also look on our catalogue pages above. http://philofaxy.blogspot.com/p/catalogues.html
And (assuming it's not more that 25 years old) you'll find a three letter code, the location of which varies from model to model, but under the closer flap is most common. The first letter indicates the year of manufacture.
I really appreciate the help
I drew the January pages for my week insert and like the large equal space on all days. I do not have enough lined paper for the whole year though and probably will not buy more paper. I looked at my unused extra inserts that I bought for previous years like the Filofax personal horizontal diary with appointments. It has a clean layout. I may use a few months of these pages since the dates correspond to the 2016 dates. I can cover the calendars and holidays with labels. I do not prefer the smaller weekend space but I would rather use them.
