F is for… Filofax
Anita – I have owned a Filofax for over 20 years. The first one I owned was a black leather personal organiser bought in the last century. In 2006, I had to get a new one as the coin purse split from carrying around too much change. I replaced it with another one exactly the same but this time in brown and I use a separate purse for coins. Inside I have a week per two-page diary, an address book and lots of lined paper. I also have a filofax ruler to mark the day.
Although, most of the things I used my Filofax for I now do on my phone. I still tend to carry it about in my handbag like a security blanket.
Jo – I have always been fascinated with Filofax, but totally failed to use one. My phone acts as a filofax for me but I need to update it with addresses from a very ancient and much scribbled in address book.
