After struggling for a while with trying to maintain my schedule and tasks on a combo of my phone, iPad, and work computer, I'm giving a paper based system a go. I've had diaries in the past but have always ended up with bits of paper going everywhere, so I've decided to try a Filofax. Well, to be fair, I don't actually have a true Filofax yet, I've got a debden-Collins (which I think is mostly found in Australia and New Zealand) in the equivalent of pocket size. If it works for me then I'll shell out and get a Filofax, probably a personal chameleon I think. I need to know if it's a good option for me before I spend all that money, they are not cheap, although if it's a good system for you then it seems like it would pay for itself compared to buying a new diary each year.
Side rant - the prices in NZ compared to the states or the UK. We're used to things costing more here than overseas, but an organiser that costs $69 on the filofax USA site costs $169NZ on the Filofax NZ site, which is the equivalent of $132 US! Nearly twice as much! Why so much more?! Anyway, rant over, I'll find somewhere else to buy it.
I'm a very visual person, and I like my everyday items to look pretty, so the plain dividers weren't really doing it for me, so I made some new ones, which I like a lot better.
These are yet to be hole punched, as we don't have a hole punch at home so it'll have to wait until I'm at work. I used the address tabs as a template but I think next time I would use larger/longer tabs.
