Free For All Friday No 497 by Laurie

Steve's recent post on buying and selling on Adspot got me thinking about my own Filofax buying and selling habits and how they have changed over the years.

Way back in the day when I had my first Filofax, I was loyal to it for a few years. Then other models started catching my eye: color, style, and eventually a larger size (Personal to A5). I went through a few years where I bought numerous Filofax organizers. Eventually I sold some, although I have kept the majority.

My purchasing has slowed down considerably in recent years, although I do purchase the occasional Filofax that catches my eye or, in the case of a recent Deskfax experiment, a binder in hopes of it being The One. (Jury's still out for those who are wondering its fate.)

What are your binder buying/ selling patterns? Are you loyal to your one and only? Have you been through a buying frenzy but have calmed down now? Do you rotate through your stock buying and selling regularly?

And as always on Fridays, feel free to discuss anything ring binder organizer related!

Predicting the future

Not everything I predict about the future and write about becomes fact and true.... good job too I guess!

Take my 'spoof' news article from 2012: A glimpse in to the future

At the time Filofax were in talks about merging with Quo Vadis, the merger didn't happen because at the time Quo Vadis were apparently going through some difficult times as well.

If it had gone ahead then may be we would be enjoying inserts of different designs and beautiful paper.

Oh and Laurie would be working for the new combine company.... may be!

Yes the web link in the original article still works! 😀
