Free For All Friday No. 67

This week I revived my Personal Deco Filofax to use as my "everything except my planner" book. My current (bound-book) planner has a page size and layout that I love, but it has no pages in the back for notes. I have some major things coming up in the next several months (like moving to a foreign country) that I need to prepare for, big time.

I'm thrilled to have a major use for this Filofax, because it's gorgeous and I love it, but until now it was underused. Now it will get a real workout! I revamped my tabs, updated my lists, souped-up my goals and am cranking on my move preparation. I wrote about my tabbed sections and how I'm using my Deco a couple of days ago in Tabbed Sections! if you want to read more details.

What's new in your Filofax life these days?


  1. I just bought and recieved new blank section tabs. Hopefully I'll be able to organize my Filo this weekend, with more personal sections. Once that's up and running, I will report back.

  2. I am very pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Paige Paigen line of organizer products for testing at http://www.paigepaigen.com/

    All products are available for a limited time as PDF files under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND License.

    The current line comprises 20 different types of A5 size organizer pages, designed as a perfect fit for your Filofax A5 binder, or any other A5 binder system.

    As it stands, the PDF files are formatted to be printed on US Letter size paper, since it was too difficult for us to find sufficient stock of ISO paper here in the US for prototyping. A5 format PDFs will be forthcoming soon.

    I hope you will enjoy the product line, and that it will add something to your life. Feedback is very much appreciated at paigepaigen@gmail.com

  3. I'm just hopeful that all this talk about filo will bring about my desire for a slimmer a5 available everywhere. i've attempted to make something with posts, but it's just not the same...

  4. Penny, Filofax UK is coming out with new products in March, April and May with the promise of "some things we've been asking for." Well I (and several others of us here at Philofaxy) have been asking for a Slimline A5 for a long time, so fingers crossed that will be among the new releases this spring!!
