I saw a few people mention my declaration where I said I would use the Osterley Personal for the whole of 2013.
Well I said I will start from 2013 and then in theory I have until 1 January 2013 to make any fine tuning whether that be change to a pocket size Filofax or choose a different diary format! It is not set in stone until 1 January 2013. Therefore if I really wanted I could buy a Pocket Osterley in Plum and use that from 1 January 2013. But as it is not a set in stone event until 31 January 2013 I therefore am able to change my mind.
A few people mentioned I should use two filofaxes have one as a main home binder and have one I take with me.
Well I am unable to do that as I would forget to update the other. BUT I am going to update holiday's overtime etc, (important things) in both in case for any reason I HAD to change)
The idea of the "test drive".
This is what I intend to do, I have ordered a Filofax Cross in Pink (I believe as it is an older model it may be better quality, leather and rings wise)
I do not actually use much room in my diary, I have been trying to fill up the space with Washi Tape but it looks a bit excessive!
See that is all I write in, then I turn it in to this...
Therefore less room in a Pocket Filofax will make it easier to use as less prettiness needs to be done! :)
What about your beautiful Osterley?
A lot of people are saying this..... What about peoples spare Filofaxes they have they do not use? I am not the only person in the world guilty of committing this crime! I am still using a Filofax, just my needs require a smaller Filofax!
My beautiful Regency is still unused, but I am ok with it. I am sure I will go back to using the Osterley soon, but for a different reason, maybe somewhere to write recipes... that would be useful!
Snarling gave me a wonderful tip!!!
Use A6 notebooks or Midori Notebooks, therefore I may use one of those just for lists or something to save on pages!!!
If it doesn't work I have 2 weeks to decide and use the Osterley and sell on the Pocket!
I hope that answered everyone's questions over my decisions towards Pocket!
