Caught with 2 different sizes
Damn. What should I do? I've had a personal-sized Filofax for ten years, but when I started this job, it didn't feel quite enough. I kept it for personal purposes and made my own A5-sized for use as a researcher. One reason was that there are more forms available here in A5, another that as I get many papers in A4, it's easy to just fold them and store them in the same folder. (I actually made course notes there too.) I'm using a standard punch and folder for it, no special one from Filofax or the like. (This is a very practical choice - I don't have to carry my own punch around...)
Well, then I started to keep a diary. In A5, which proved to be a good size - the filofax would be too small for really relaxed writing which is important in this case. Also for other uses A5 would be good - actually at least for work I find it much better of these two. But, now I am quitting here, and the diary will be the only use for this folder... Still, I would like to carry it with me most of the time.
What is good about the personal, is that it is just small enough for my hand bag. No A5-sized folder fits there. Not that I use that bag even every week, but... For other uses the than the diary the personal sixe is quite ok, I'm used to it and I've come to the conclusion that privately I can live without that many self-made forms. Actually the ones found it the shop are good most of the time. (Cutting A4 -> A5 is fast, but A4 -> nxpersonal is much more work...)
But - 2 different sizes is NOT a very practical situation. How in earth could I solve this?
