Free For All Tuesday - No. 372

So what questions or discussion points have you got for us today?

It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a more experienced user of organisers, we want to hear your thoughts, questions, opinions etc.

Make today the one day you post a comment or a question.

It is Tuesday after all so fire away.


  1. I’m happy to post a comment on fee for all Tuesday. Trouble is one always has to log in and it’s a faff to remember whatch account I use. I see below that even here I have to say which google account I’m going to comment as! Generally I surf and use the net not logged in as I hate the way the big boys track and collate your activity. I’ve stopped using FB for example. It was much easier in the days when I started using a Filofax for example. All my comments on daily life past present and future where logged there. I never lost my ‘fax but that was always a worry. Now though each post is effectively lost and immediately owned by the electronic data gathering bots and and marketeers. Happy to be in the Philofaxy Group though. Happy days for a 2b pencil, quality paper with a doodle or two.

  2. I lived in Brussels in the 1980s. There they had, what I believed were called agendas Petit Francais. Do you know anything about these?

  3. Can anyone tell me why Filofax discontinued the maldens in black? New to planning and I would really like to find one in pocket size.

    1. Filofax doesn’t make any of its own organisers and hasn’t for 25 years. It commissions a factory - usually in China or India - to make a batch of a particular model, size and colour. When they are sold out they either discontinue that type or order a fresh batch if they think the demand is still there. To limit the amount of colours available, sometimes a colour is temporarily discontinued until sales of less popular colours have reduced stock levels.

  4. Thanks for the information Tim...I appreciate it.
