So a few months ago I did a Calling of the Dog style post (Thank you to Laurie for coming up with this concept) it was over diary layouts and I came out with one winner, and today its still the best I’ve used to far, I probably will go for either a day on two pages or one page but for now its PERFECT!
But here is another situation where this is difficult!
So I wanted to move to a pocket as I have a small handbag now and decided that a Personal is too big to carry, here are the size comparisons between my Personal Crimson Malden and my Black Pocket Special Edition.
It was all made worse last night when I decided to have a look at my to do list and update it, so I did this and updated my Personal sized to do list and my Pocket Size, and I noticed that the pocket just was not as wide as the Personal in page sizing, as I believed they were the same width that was why it would work!
There is a centimetreish difference between the pocket and personal paper width wide, which I did not expect! I know its nearly half its height but that was why I liked it!
I'm not sure if its partly the diary to blame as its stiff, as if I had a Pocket Malden would make this cause any easier? I really just don’t know what to do about it!
As you can see my Pocket seems to be as big as my Personal! I think it is something to do with the design of the Pocket tho, as I believe it should be thinner!
So I will show you the comparison betweeen the different ways I have layed them out.
So first of all is the diaries, I have 2 days per page in my Personal and week to view in my Pocket!
I love the pink ruller I have for the Pocket, I wish they did more pink, and more pink accessories hehe
If I was going to go for a Pocket I would have to go for either a 2 days to a page or whole day to page, I always have a month to view as well.
Then I have my to do lists, this is when I realised how much I need to use a personal as the page width just isnt wide enough or maybe a Slimline A5 (if they existed).
Even the finance sheets the boxes are too small as they have to shrink different boxes! I know its obvious that they would do that but makes them a big too small which can drive you CRAZY!
I need to know from people who have a pocket and use it as their main Filofax if it does work or if they do find it too small and annoying! I would love to know?
Any tips you can give me to make a pocket work as I would love to use a pocket, pros and cons of a pocket too! I want to know everything possible!
Thank you all in advance and I look forward to hearing from you with your advice regarding Pocket Filofaxes
