Filofox Clipbook flip through

Long-time readers will know that I'm a sucker for a nice bit of stationery, so I was very excited to find what I think might be my dream notebook.

I've known for ages that my ideal notebook size is A5, plenty of space to write, but also not too big to fit in a bag.

I've also known that being able to swap pages around is important, because I'm often working on a few things at once and never know how many pages to leave in between, so some kind of ring-bound book.

The book couldn't be too heavy, again because of carrying it around.

To be honest, I'd come to the conclusion that a Filofax would be a possible option, but I'd discounted it because of the weight issue... And then I discovered the Clipbook.


Soft plastic cover and not too thick, with plenty of lined, squared and plain paper. There's also an undated diary (year, monthly and weekly pages), that I've decided to use for my business appointments and planning.

The other thing that I love is that the rings don't get in the way in the Clipbook like they often do in classic Filofax.

I've used the Clipbook for a couple of weeks now, in lots of different environments and I'm loving it. I really do think I've finally found my dream notebook.

Disclaimer: I purchased the Filofax Clipbook and extra inserts using my own money and these are my unbiased thoughts on the product.

Reasons to be cheerful - 5th October 2017

It's a quickie this week... I'm still loving my job and really glad that I made the move. I submitted two commissioned articles to editors and they were happy. I'm off on a trip, a couple of nights away (more on that next week). Hope you've had a great week too.

Reasons to be cheerful - 7th December 2017

1) After a day of sawing, drilling, cutting, etc, etc, and then a new bit in the boiler...We have gas! Yes, our heating, hot water and cooker are now working - the gas is fixed! SO happy after 12 days without it.

2) This morning Boyzilla was greeted by a dead RAT outside the sitting room. Whilst yucky (but not as yucky as if I'd had to clean it up), it makes me hugely proud that my cats are, well, cats.

3) The two planning tools I ordered for 2018 to help me move forward with my plans to do more writing have arrived and I'm looking forward to spending big chunks of the next four days exploring them and planning for a fantabulous year.
