Week 21/52

I moved back to FF! Couldn't stand the weight of Franklin Covey binder! Moreover, I plan to go a size down, and move to a pocket size! I don't have a pocket FF yet, I have a replica of it, I plan to use it until I buy a pocjket FF. I'm still deceiding which one to use, but you know which one is my vaf, right? :)

week {20/52}★

This week I have changed to writing with a pencil completely.  It proved to be the right decision. I like that I could transfer my to dos or appointments to anither day or to another place
 What do I mean by a different place? I use GTD context lists and I write them underneath the columns with hours. Here I write things that I have not scheduled the day or the hour yet, my to do's for hime, things to buy, places to go, and my spendings. Initially there are signs "tasks" written there, I wanted to white them out, but then figured out that I could just write before them without having to take out the whitening pen. (Yes, i'm just lazy! :)
     I have also added to do pages in front of the week -you can't see them here, of course.
     You coukd see also the paper flag sticked on Monday up. This means that I have accomplished/done this to do. I started to use paper flags and found them very useful. I can put them anywhere and relocate them to any page and place. The only inconvenient thing is that they are too big to be placed horizontally on vertical week on two pages. This could be solved by cutting them or folding them- again, I don't want to bother. :)

My week 19/52. I moved to Franklin Covey!

I wanted to insert more pages, and no matter how many pages I took out from my Filofax, it was always full. I even figured out how to slim down pages in Filofax and wanted to make a video for my YouTube channel  about it. No luck!

I have completely changed my set up, and want to make a video about it too! But my days are so full right now (do you have aVERY BUSY may, as I always have?), that I am putting off making videos every day!

I also can't figure out how to put my photos from Instagram to my blog. Do you have any ideas? Is it possible? :)

Finally, my picture is here

Hope you enjoyed!

week {18/52} ☆

Here is my week 18 of 2013. I have switched to a week on two pages inserts that I downloaded from Philofaxy blog.
 I wanted this layout for a really long time, but thought that the columns will be too narrow and I won't have the space to write my to's. I thought this layout work only for an A5 size, but gladly, I was wrong!
If you want to try it, just try it! No guessing needed!
There is enough space for appointments and to do's on the bottom of each day. I could use these "Tasks" columns on the bottom for:

1. tasks that I need to do on each given day or
2. for tasks that I need to do for the entire week, divided into context, as "to buy", "to go", "ideas", "to research" etc.

This depends on how much I need to do.

I also tried to write on the very top on the page, where 6 am is supposed to be, three most important things to do for the day. Sometimes it didn't work because since I have started to write them, I needed to write EVERYTHING without thinking at the same time about what is the most important of the day. So,  I switched to writing  them on the bottom. Then to plan my day hour by hour, I needed to write at which time what I'm going to do!
This makes me writing everything  twice, on the bottom,  and on the hours of the day! Waisted space and time! I need to do something about that!

I'm going to submit this post to Amgela from to participate in the week round up.

Filofax and my bag match!

My bag goes together with my Malden Filofax very well! They both have the same very soft black leather that is squishy to touch. Love them both! Both made a very long way. The bsg is from Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I have bought it, and the Malden came to me from US.
