I am now 3 months on from original setup of my Filofax and so far it seems to be going really well!
In case you had forgotten, my 2011 setup was in a Personal Raspberry Metropol with the Day Timer Flavia page per day lay out!
So how has my current setup been working for me? I have to say, remarkably well!
The front of the binder, stores my stamps, business cards, passport photos and general pieces of papers that I need to keep!
The right hand side has the plastic cover, then a rough printout of how my days unfold along with a picture of my son.
This is the page per day layout and it seems to be working well for me. I do sometimes think I would like day on 2 page layouts, but then I think I would have too much space! I love seeing my days really full! So I shall carry on using this layout a bit longer, like 9mths longer! The one thing I really am missing is my weekly layout view, but I just can’t justify writing things in 2 places!
I then have a month on 2 page layout. I started using this to list my day in 6 words, but then in March I have decided to try and see if it would working putting my appoints that are happening during the month in. So far so good! I do like being able to see my month in full!

I hope you have found this interesting? I am well on my way to reaching my goal of using the same layout for the entire year! Fingers crossed it continues as well, so I can get my reward in Dec ’11!
