  1. What's the best way to discern what colour the different Filofax makes and models look like in real life? The official photos on the Filofax website seem wildly different in some cases to reality (e.g. Filofax Original Dark Aqua). Are there any sources of more 'true to life' images/footage? Thanks!

  2. I have several Filofaxes for different uses (everyday planner, brain dump, travel, courses etc.) now I have fallen in love with the red original and bought the personal and A5 with the intention to use it for my plotting (I am a published writer). But I just can't start. Plot as usual on scraps of paper sigh... Does anyone know this problem trying to keep the Filofax box pristine?? Silly I know, but maybe someone can give me a hint how to start and not taking out all the written bits once something is crossed out.

    1. Just idea but could the plotting be done on post its you then stick into your filofax? Just to start you off until you get used to using a page? Or slice up some A4 rubbish paper and use that hole ounched to fit

    2. many thanks, that is a good idea. But also that way I tend to get rid of pages that are not pristine. I admire all those people who use theirs for everything and have it stuffed with notes. Maybe I should stick to scrappaper ;)
