This post is literally a month late, but oh well! I received two very nice binders for Christmas, and now I’m suffering from Binder Indecision.
My Every Day Carry is my Day-Timer portable Rose Gold planner. It goes everywhere with me.
Other notebooks in use: my Mini Flex and a 3-3 format notebook from my MIL.
Newcomers to the picture: Day-Timer desk size Malibu in Teal/Aqua and my cousin-in-law’s vintage (20 year old) A5 Filofax Finsbury. The Binders I received are A5/Classic/Desk size. So I can use the same size paper in both binders.
Dilemma? Love the color of the Malibu, but the A5 Filo functions better.
- Personal inserts fit the rings for the A5.
- A5 and personal insert holes fit the rings of the Mini Flex.
- A5 holes fit the holes of a standard 3-ring binder.
Now that I have the A5 in my hand, I have a better idea of what I’m dealing with.
12/26/2015-morning: Philip has given me the okay to return the Malibu. I’m looking into an Electric Blue A5 Finsbury on Amazon.
12/26/2015-afternoon: After a trip to Hobby Lobby, I believe the universe wanted me to keep the Malibu. I found packs of 100 sheet, 7 hole punched paper, for $3.99 each. So the Malibu will be used for my Spring class.
1/3/2016: During a trip to Walmart, I found more packs of 7-hole punched paper!!! Why have I know seen this before?
In conclusion, the A5 will be used for my writing notebook and the Malibu will be for class notes.
