I changed to writing with black gel pen 0.5 mm and enjoy it a lot. I also have a pocket size notebook and write there my to do's and notes and enjoy it also. I take out the current week on two pages out of my Filofax and this notebook and go out without the Filofax itself. And don't have the weight of it! I'm happy!
I also added wider day on a page sheets that I hacked out of another planner and write there my diary - my thoughts, weather, anything that concerns me etc. It is very helpful to calm down my mind this way.
I have bought on Wednesday a lot of scrapbooking supplies and enjoy it. I probably going to make a video on it.
