Readers Favourite Organiser - Diana

Thank you to Diana for sharing with us her favourite organiser. 

1. What is your favourite organiser (Make/model/size)?

I have different model of organizer in my book shelf but at the moment I am really in love with my Piquadro organizer.

2. How long have you owned it?

I had this organizer from my parent as Christmas gift. I get the working bag from the same collection as a gift as well when I start my research career with a research fellow at Padua University. Since was really difficult find a binder system that matches with this bag my parent had thought to bought for me a medium binder from the same collection. We order the binder on-line from Piquadro website.
As you see from the pictures the organizer still new. This kind of products, as my working bag, require a lot of use before to start looking loved.

3. What is it that you like about it so much?

From this binder I like 2 features most: the front pocket that is really handy and my name embossed in the intern left side. We could choose position, the typo and the words.

4. Do you use it all the time?

I change my organizer "skin" on the basis of my mood and my bag preference. I definitively in love with my Malden as well and I regret to sold my compact Malden last year. I usually prefer clean and keep my lists really well organized to don't overload the weight on my working bag. I review my lists really often, removing what is not important, planning what has be plan and archiving important information that I need to keep as reference.

5. Do you think the design could be improved in any way? How?

They should reduce the size of the organizer itself in my opinion. The binder is half inch bigger than the others binders that I have and this is something that I do not like. Some people like the extra-room that mean that is possible use FraklinCovey inserts or have the pen well protected by the cover without any interference with the lateral tabs.

And here are some photographs of my favourite organiser

Thank you Diana

  1. What's the poem on the piece of paper in the front pocket? I can only sort of make out the first paragraph: "I may have no house but I will carry you to the end of the world." It's beautiful. Would love to know what the rest says. :)

    1. Hi Jk, is a small message that my husband wrote in my planner when we were engage. I glue behind a picture of us and I laminate the page because I love it so much. It says: "I may have no house but I will carry you to the end of the world. I may have no kingdom but every home I share with you is worth more to me than a castle. I may not come form a prestigious family, but I don't need nobodies else respect, only yours. I ay not be a prince but if you will be my queen it will make me fell like the king of the hole world"

  2. That's a beautiful organizer.

  3. Diana,
    What a fab organiser, had a quick look on the website & very many beautiful expensive items.
    For me @ the moment filofax stretches my budget lol .
    I can keep on dreaming cant I ?????????

    1. I always suggest my readers to save for hight quality binders. I do like this: every time that I see on Instagram a binder from filofax or kikkik that I would like to buy I move 20-30 euro on my paypal for my new Van der Spek that I am going to order as soon I reach the amount that I need.
