Should I upsize or do they have a Filofax with a larger ring size?
My personal size Aston and a little card case that hold about 6 cards nicely. I went to the University bookstore and found the little card case for only $6. I really like it because I don't really need to carry much more than it holds. :) But the first day I had it I found out that is doesn't really hold its shape too well when sat on, so it stays in my coat pocket with my lip balm. Oh back to the topic, ha ha. I use my Filofax for everything. I am a very forgetful girl so I write down everything. I even write down when hubby and I are intimate, shh don't tell him I told you that.
Yes my Aston is really full. 172 pages as of 27 September 2012, not including the many accessory items that I have in there. Since I have been adding and taking out multiple things.
Here is what I have in mine:
~ sticker page/stickers
~ sticky notes tab
~ calendar/schedule which i use for most everything...
~ tab sections that takes up most of it I have made my own little tabs within each major tab
~ shopping list
~ tic tac toe my daughter and I play while waiting to pick up my son
~ travel plans/ideas
~ To Do this is where I keep extra to do pages
~ Storage a list of things that are needed in the storage unit or to bring home from
~ Daily time schedule
~ Cleaning schedule right now it is a basic idea of what I do or need to be doing
~ TV shows I sometimes forget what channel or when they are on
~ Filofaxes that have the full width pocket I want to get one to use as a wallet
~ Things that I want/need
Then I have a flyleaf so that if I need to make a new list I can flip right to a blank page
~This is where I have my 365/30 list from Philofaxy
I have tabs for my two kids and each vehicle and things that need to be done as well as a record of what has been done like for a vehicle it would be when the tabs are due or when the brakes were last done
~ Extra cards
~ top loading pocket I have Canadian $5 and two $2 which are kinda rare :)
~ envelope for cash
~ slant pocket for receipts from day timer
~ finance pages with tabs for different accounts We keep our grocery money separate from bills and spending money. And I help my dad keep track of how much money he has.
~ Under this tab I keep a list of insert pages that I want to get, local Filofax retailers, and in my A-Z tabs I keep local business listings with address, phone and hours.
There have been many times that I pull up to a business and have to find out when they open/close. It sucks to get in there and find out they close in 5 minutes.
Phew that was alot. Time for a break... :)
