I suddenly got the urge the week before last that I really could do with an A4 Filofax for work!
As you know my collection includes the Pocket, Personal and A5, various in each size, but I have never ventured larger than A5 as I just thought it was WAY too big!
With work I tend to work off lots of printed off emails, lists etc, from various systems and I need to be able to keep them in order, as well as have a notes, to do and diary! Filofax really seemed the only option.
I did go to Staples and look at their A4 Conference folders, but good lord they are huge! I was there comparing the Filofax and Conference folder in Staples and looking at the pros and cons, and Filofax won!
So home I came and Ebay I stalked! I found a brand new A4 Graphic Filofax and I won it! £36 incl postage, not bad I thought!
Here it is :-
Isn’t it lovely? It is a microfibre cover, which really is quite practical really considering how much it is going to be carried around and left open! Talk about open, it lies perfectly flat when open, which is great!
How have I got it set up? Well here goes :-
Tab 1 – To do lists section
Tab 2 – Week on Two Pages diary for 2010 that came with the filofax
Tab 3 – Notes section
Tab 4 – Aged Debtors Analysis, Product code information, pricing structures etc
Tab 5 – Supplier orders
Tab 6 – People I need to chase
A – Z section has details on all the customers I am currently doing work for.
The one thing I really LOVE about this filofax is I can print out an A4 page, and punch it and bamn it fits, right way, no adjustments needed, and I can now store all the papers I work on!
So would I recommend it, yes as a work fax, but I certainly wouldn’t be carrying it around with me every day!
p.s. Sorry Steve, I forgot to say, No other Filofax papers fit the A4, without having to repunch all the holes!
