I was just reading Philofaxy's Free For All Friday and someone asked a question about the Ostrich filofax. This reminded me of Ro, who uses an Ostrich and it is her one and only, everything Filofax. For years she has used this and it is beaten up but each scar tells a story. You can read about Ro's Filofax obsession here on Philofaxy's Reader Under the Spotlight.
This is what I would call a One True Filofax (copyright: Me!! I'm coining this phrase and taking out a copyright on it!!!!! OK, not really...).
Mr Ochre Malden here would be my One True Filo!!
So I'm particularly interested in what you guys think about this:
Do you desire an OTF? Do you crave finding the perfect solution? For you, is it a search for the perfect binder- the right leather, perfect colour, pocket layout? Finding the perfect size for you? Or, is it about the insides- finding the perfect set-up of inserts, dividers, planning pages, that will last you through the years. Or even finding the right diary format? I know Jotje extols the virtues of a one-life, one-planner philosophy- and I can see the virtues in this, definitely. Laurie has spent years, and established a wonderful blog, trying to find the perfect planning system for her.
Or, do you like the flexibility of being able to change between different binders, and even different sizes, as your life requires it? Do you value the ring mechanism of the Filofax for the ability to change the set-up of your filo with ease? Do you like change?
I think I am going to turn this into a regular blog feature, with guest posts and even a competition or two!! In the comments, please tell me if you think this is a good idea for a series, and if you would like to do a guest post! It could even be a guest video! Don't tell me about your One True Filofax or One True Set-Up yet, wait for the relevant blog posts :)
Get thinking about what you would like to say!!
