You'll have to forgive my sudden barrage of Filofax related posts this week. It's just got to that time of year again when I've started thinking about personal organisation for 2013 and how I'll have to do it differently now I'm a mum. Needs change and no longer am I keeping track of shifts at work, meetings & nights out - but Drs appointments, health visitor clinics and play dates (whilst planning a wedding!).
I love my personal sized Filofax, I really do. But the Flex caught my eye some time ago, however back then I didn't really see a place for it in my life. I used to carry a massive handbag to work and everywhere I went, so along came the Filofax. These days that handbag is a baby's changing bag and room inside it for myself is at a premium. Enter the Flex.
I opted for the 'Slim' because as I mentioned I wanted it to be compact and it really lives up to it. I know lots of Filofax fans who don't like these, but the thing is you need to let go of your preconceptions of the brand to embrace it. The fact is - I like it so much I may even get an A5 to use solely as my wedding planner. The Flex is never going to replace my 'traditional' Filofax, but it's a great & compact planner/ notebook to compliment it.
