Free For All Friday no. 479 by Anita

I have a confession... I haven't read all the posts on Philofaxy!

From time to time, I go back and re-read specific ones I found useful, or look for some that I know I missed due to life being too busy.

With all this in mind, I thought that I would go back and share some of the older posts that were published on the 19th January over the years:
If you are looking for a particular topic, there is a search box in the right hand column of the page, or you can click on a label further down on the right again.  

And as always on Fridays, please feel free to discuss anything ring-bound planner related.

Have a great weekend.

Tell us about...... 20

It is about 3 years since we first started posting about A6 organisers and inserts. A lot has happened in that 3 years.

So I've set myself a task to research and update my original A6 in summary post from 2 years ago, and republish it soon.

There are some dead links and some information that needs updating in that post.

Whilst I no longer use an A6 as a planner, I'm in A5 fairly exclusively now. I do use A6 for notes and things. The A6 size is very compact and easy to carry around.

So I'm interested to know:
  • How many of you have moved over to using the A6 size? 
  • How many of you have tried it? 
  • What inserts do you think would be useful in A6 that aren't already available to purchase or download?

Tell us in the comments below.

Filofax at 100 Years

Filofax will be celebrating 100 years in 2021.

For the 75th anniversary they produced a very special duplex organiser in a presentation case it was called the 'Grace Scurr' edition.

Our dear friend Janet has a great post about this limited edition which they made 1921 examples of in 1996.

This photograph is as close as I have got to seeing one for real! This was at our evening visit to the Filofax offices in Burgess Hill back in September 2013.

For the 85th anniversary they produced a limited edition of the Filofax Eton organiser and a matching wallet. Once again Janet has a great post on this limited edition too. They produced 200 of this model.

I was wondering what will the 100th year Filofax be called? I came up with a couple of ideas

  • The Century Edition
  • The Centennial Edition

And what will it look like?

We have had 'The Original' and 'The Heritage' both of these are still in volume production of course.

Personally I think they will struggle to match the quality of the 75th Grace Scurr which was 'Made in England' at Ilford I presume, which was still in operation until August 2000.

I can think of at least two makers of high quality leather organisers in Europe.... but I really don't think Filofax would sub-contract to either of those, but I would love to be proved wrong!

So your thoughts on celebrating the 100th birthday of Filofax?
