I have just recently revived my interest in Filofax. A few years ago, I abandoned the concept of a paper organizer in lieu of the tech-savvy PDA. The PDA was replaced by a smartphone and then by an iPad. Even though I wanted to use these gadgets to track my contacts, lists, calendar, and other aspects of my life, I found I missed the comfort of a fountain pen moving over paper. Please allow me to introduce you to my Filofax A5 Cuban in black….his name is Tennyson.
With all of the Filofax colors available, some of you may be wondering why in the world did I purchase a black organizer. After all, the Cuban does come in Chilli and Chestnut, in addition to the black, but I wanted an organizer that would match my man bag and other leather accroutements from Saddleback Leather Company.
A couple of weeks ago, I set about in earnest to set up Tennyson in a way that would best suit my needs. As part of my reasearch into the best set-up method, I scoured Philofaxy and Youtube. I really enjoyed Judith's (aka Jotje) video on her A5 Adelphi and I implemented some of her ideas on my own. I was using the 2PPD calendar but she convinced me to switch to the W2P in order to save valuable oragnizer space. Yesterday, I visited Staples and bought some Martha Stewart inserts for my Filofax. I am in the process of setting everything up and I will post a video tour to Youtube when I have finished.
