As you may have read I have finally ventured into the world of owning an A5 Filofax. The majority of my Filofaxes (5 of them) are personal sized. Why? because I have enough room to write and I can carry them around in my large but not massive handbag.
So here is the dilemma. I am really enjoying my new A5 Filofax which I bought as a desk diary. I am still moving in and developing my colour coding but it is working well. However, as I am used to always having my Filofax in my bag – it is irritating me that it is not easy to take to work and back. I don’t need to have it on the go but it is a desk diary and part of me would like to have it on both my desks even though I don’t use it for work-related stuff. Sometimes it is nice during my lunch break or if an idea just pops into my head to be able to look at my Filofax and when I have one of those moments it irritates me that it is not there.
So the question is – how do I solve this problem? I have tried fitting my beloved Filofax into my handbag (with the amount of other stuff I have in there already) – it is not easy:
So the options that remain are:
- clear out the handbag
- carry it
- get a bigger handbag (and build up my muscles)
- persevere and try not to need it when at work (after all I don’t need it for work – and it has only been a week)
- move back into a personal sized Filofax (and find another use for the A5)
- [any other suggestions?]
Do you take your A5 with you on a regular basis and if so how do you do it?
