GLOSSette here! In my Filofax Week #2 post I mentioned about having issues with not having enough spaces in the weekend to write my to-dos. I decided to try and make a day per page and see how I like it. There is a site where someone made a whole bunch of Filofax diary inserts in all sorts of layouts for all sorts of agenda sizes that you can print out and use for free. I don’t have a printer… well I do but it broke ages ago. I would recommend using those to try out some layouts before you commit to a certain one.
SOOOOO… I made my own sheet using the note sheets that came with my agenda. I like how the sheet has a margin on the left side that has half an inch shaded in grey. It helps me to put in the times for the scheduled items and for me to check mark of the things I’ve done in the to-do section.
The only problem is that a pad (whole punched) comes with only 30 sheets for a hefty $5.26 CDN. I’m only using it for the weekends so I would need 1 sheet per week –> 4 sheets per month —> 7 weeks in total. Not bad cuz 7 weeks is equal to 2 months. Still this calculation is pretty pricey. For just normal lined paper in 5.5 x 8.5 size 100 sheets is only less than $3. HOWEVER it doesn’t come with this lovely margin/shading thing (no margin at all).
So far it seems to work. I will try this method for couple weekends to see how much I like it. I still love my week on two pages view for the rest of the week. There is enough space for me to write my appointments and to-dos. Another thought is to buy undated day per page sheets, but the undated sheets can only be purchased as samples when you by the whole agenda (not just the inserts). Anywhoo, I’ll keep ya’ll updated nonetheless.
