PostSubject: My Purse/Wallet Planner   30/04/17, 10:02 pm


At the moment I use an mini orange metropol as a purse. Mini filofaxes are now very hard to get hold of as Filofax over the last few years have reduced their selection.

This orange metropol I had to send to Hungary to buy as it had completely been discontinued by filofax and everywhere else in the world had sold out and were not getting any more in.  It actually cost me more in postage than the filofax cost me.



I added the green lanyard so that I can put it on my wrist when shopping. 

I have 3 separators only in this, which I made myself because I wanted to have the tabs at the top and not at the side as the separators are that came with it.

The first section is a note book for jotting down what I need to buy.

The second section has an in case of emergency page along with notes of the size or types of things that I have to buy, such as light bulb sizes for different lamps and the product number of the ink I have to buy for the printer and so on.

The last one holds my bank cards and loyalty cards.

Then at the top is a wallet section for paper money.

I made this video about it last August if you want to take the time to watch it.

I love your video's about the FiloFax Smile

As lovely as the mini is and looks I personally find it just too small and prefer the next size up; forgot what you call that one.

Thanks Martha.

The next size up is the pocket, which is my absolute favourite size.  I use that size as my normal on the go planner but I have used it as a purse/wallet.

The majority of people that do use a filofax as a purse do use the pocket size for that.  Trouble is when I use the pocket size as a purse I then start thinking, "why am I carrying 2 filofaxes when I could just have everything in one".

So then I will put my cash and cards in my on the go pocket size with everything else and end up with at thick, hard to close filofax.

It's all the store cards that make a filo fat if you have it all in one.  I suppose one could have one of those little wallet things that are made simply to hold cards and shove all the store cards in that and then include one's cash and bank cards in the everyday planner that one uses.

It does seem though that the mini size is being fazed out.

Ahh I just looked it up here http://www.filofax.com.au/size-guide and my favourite one is the Personal Size!

That is the only one I use regularly Sandy but I also have a A5 sized one for other important files and notes.

I do like the personal size but find it a little too heavy to carry around all the time in my handbag.

Mostly the reason I like it is that because the rings are bigger it can hold a lot more and of course the pages are bigger.

I would try going back into one of that size but I don't have a 2017 diary for it. I never bothered to buy one for this year.

I don't use the diary anyway so I never buy that. Other pages I do use I create myself or I buy and download of Etsy.

Yes I like the page size of the personal one the best as I struggle with the smaller pages.

What do you use for a daily appointments diary then?

I don't use a daily appointments dairy at all to be honest and if I need to keep track of anything as such, I write it down on my wall calendar or have it set as a reminder on my phone.

I found that I was not using the calendar enough to warrant having all those pages taking up space in my organiser/filofax.

I couldn't do without my calendar.  Every little thing gets marked down in it.

I find it great for not only appointments but also reminders.  Such as when the electric bill is due in or to remind me when I next need to have my eyes tested.  Mark when I have paid my credit card bill.  I also mark down things like the last time I phoned my younger Sister, or when I last saw my elder sister, as they are forever accusing me of not seeing or hearing from me.  Those two have convenient memories.

I also put down in advance roughly when a next series of my favourite tele series is due to appear so that I don't miss the first one or two episodes.  And also if I see an advert for a brand new show starting.  They always advertise it a couple of months before it's going to start.

I use my phone for only phone calls and as a quick grab to take a photo.  I also use it to read an e-book when waiting at the hospital or doctors.

I use my phone all the time and for a lot of things lol.

Jeremy put a few apps on mine that help with everything and one of the apps is a health one. It has all my health info recorded in it that would be of help for say the ambulance officers in case of an emergency. Actually when I had to call in an ambulance last year the ambulance officer was impressed with the app and info and it has now been noted in the ambulance training to look for that app on people's phones!
This reminds me I could do a post about that in my health section so I'll leave it at that here Smile

I probably would use my phone a bit more if I had one with larger buttons.

That app sounds very interesting Martha.

That app is called Medical ID and is available for iPhones and Android phones and it also has a section within that app to put your ICE contacts in.

ICE stands for "In Case of Emergency".
