Why I ditched my Filofax and went for Moleskine

It all started with my moleskine notepad.

I really loved it. I loved how it had the days of the week one one side, and room for notes on the other side.

But then I saw this big, tall, bad boy. His name was Filofax.

 I was impressed by his size. He was A4.

Suddenly my Moleskine seemed very small. My eyes started to wander. And soon after that, I left my Moleskine for a Filofax.

At first all was well. I loved it's size. There was so much room to write stuff. But after a week weeks, the novelty of its big size wore off. In fact, its big size started to annoy me.

Too big for comfort

It took up so much room on my desk! No wonder it never looked tidy anymore! It was all hís fault. Filofax. At first I didn't want to admit I had made a mistake. But then I opened my drawer, and there it was: my dear old Moleskine. All sleek, and elegant.

And I decided then and there: even though my Moleskine is smaller than the big A4 Filofax, it's big enough for me.

And I'm sure we'll live happily ever after.

  1. I didn't know what a Filofax notepad was. I had to look it up. 🙂 I have topics to write about stored in my computer in OneNote. I have notepads in my purse and care, should and idea strike that Ineed to write down until I get to my computer.

    I think it's great you found a method that works for you. Smaller is sometimes better, less waste of paper. 🙂

  2. 🙂 Smaller is nice for jotting down notes and quick reminders. And there have been times when I think that my large notepad causes me to be disorganized in thoughts, you know what I mean? Too much room to throw ideas around. I've ended up with disjointed ideas all over the page. I do use a larger Dayminder at work--but my desk is much larger there. 🙂

    I had to chuckle at how you built their little characters, by the way. 🙂

  3. I am partial to Moleskine too, but I usually go with a regular Moleskine (the one with graph paper) not their pre-made planner one. This may sound odd, but I like to draw out my own weekly layout or daily layout and leave a couple of pages extra for notes.
