Moving into a Malden... again!

I don't know what came over me, exactly...
I had a Filofax fail near the end of February, although it wasn't Filo's fault. I had been using my lavender (personal) Domino faithfully since January 1st, then I just stopped. So in reality, I failed my Filo.
Somewhere in mid-February, I ordered the Malden (black, personal). When it showed up (after being in the post forever!), I found I didn't like it as much as I had hoped. I sent it back.
But then, another change! I realized my life has been bursting at the seams with stress BECAUSE I ABANDONED MY FILOFAX! At that point, I did what any rational addict would do-- I ordered another one!
Well, almost.
I actually re-ordered the Malden. I figured it deserved another chance. Why should it be punished for my fear of commitment, right?! ;)
Presently I am over the moon with excitement as I contemplate how I will move in to the Malden. What I will ditch, what i will take, and in what order I will place my priorities (as they relate to my dividers, lists, notepapers, etc., anyway...)
I am experiencing a great many life transitions at the moment-- and for the next several months-- and I will be relying heavily on my Filofaxes to preserve what is left of my sanity during this time.
For the moment, I'm going to check out who else is experimenting/changing things up with theirs...


  1. Oh my. You are the first person I know to return and then re order a Filofax! But it is beautiful. I could not function without my Filofax. Things would just get too stressful! I am sure your filofax will help you through the life transitions!
    Good luck.

  2. Uh, I have done the same thing, so no worries. A couple of years ago I did this with the Guildford Slimline - it arrived, I figured it was too slim even before trying to use it, I sent it back. Then I had returner's remorse and reordered it. Except that there were two slimline versions - I forget what each was called but one was narrower than the other, everything else the same. So in a mad frenzy I called the company, had a long chat over which was the one I should get, still couldn't decide, and so ordered both with the idea that I'd return the one I didn't want, which is what I ended up doing. But that was after I had ordered the first and sent it back. It was a very confusing time in my life.
