Some of you may have seen my blog post about the latest filofax that has come out. Well whilst at the Filofax event last week I got discussing with one of the ladies just what we used our filofaxes for and why we havent upgraded to technology.
So here’s what is in mine.
- My diary which contains any appointments along with all my deadlines for my degree.
- My address book
- Birthdays, anniversaries and other important dates.
- My monthly outgoings
- My notes section which I use for anything and everything including noting down creative writing ideas and blog posts etc.
Now dont get me wrong its hefty to carry around sometimes and at times does have to get left at home because its just too big but most of the time its with me. It has my life in it. If I lost it I dont know what I’d do.
In recent months my Mum has taken to not using her physical diary so much and now records everything on her phones calender. This is all well and good except for one minor point… What happens when you lose your phone? Your phone is our of battery? Your phone breaks?
Thats all your appointments, phone numbers, etc that have just vanished into thin air. And lets face it how often do we all have one of those things happen to our phones? Quite often if your me! Which is why no time soon do I plan to move on over to using technology to record everything that my mind cant remember.
It may be a hefty chunk but its my personal baby my filofax. I adore it. I wouldnt be without it and dont ever plan not to be! Simple.
Do you have a diary? Is it paper or technological?
