My first Filofax was an A5 Apex which I started using in January 2013 but after six months I was tempted into moving down to a personal size binder. I thought A5 was too big and bulky and I was smitten with my sleek and stylish yellow Original.
The persuasive little voice was now telling me that A5 wasn't big and bulky it meant I would have more room for my notes, reminders and to do lists, plenty of space for my ideas and doodles and what's more I could use my Kokeshi girl dividers from Cute Organizing again!

I knew what I wanted, an A5 Original in fluoro pink. I had enough prize money to buy one and they were in stock too! There was nothing stopping me... except for one thing. The voice of reason who said to me if I moved back up to A5 then all of my personal size filos would suddenly be redundant. I wouldn't be able to chop and change between them when the mood took me and they would all be sat on the shelf being unused and unloved.
The voice of reason continued, why mess with my current planning system? It was working wasn't it? I was getting things done, just because we were about to start a new year didn't mean I had to change things up. What if I ordered the A5 and then missed personal size? What if it messed with my system and hindered me instead of helping me?
In the end I ordered the fluoro pink Original in personal size and I am happy that I did. I am going to continue using my current set up for as long as it works for me. I also realised that if I got excited about using my Kokeshi dividers again I should probably just order a new set of them in personal size!
Did you have a new year wobble? Did you change your planner or planning system for 2015 or have you stuck with what was working for you? I would love to know!
