I have owned quite a few Filofaxes over the years, but tend to keep a pretty small collection as I usually sell one if I purchase a new one. This has enabled me to try out a good variety and I've realised that my preference is for older models in red, brown or black colour. I think that partly I like the layout and design of the vintage ones, but it's occurred to me recently that I also prefer owning something with a bit of character. It also needs to be in a darker colour, so that it doesn't show wear and tear so easily. As a recovering perfectionist, I can absolutely understand why someone would want to keep their binder in pristine condition by keeping it in a pouch, but for me personally trying to keep things like new just caused me stress. I think that nowadays I probably enjoy using them more as I'm not worried about damaging or marking them with use.
Do you keep your binders in a pouch, or do they get shoved into bags (like mine)?
And as always, as it's Friday please feel free to discuss anything organiser related.
