Filofax Compact Pennybridge Review

This post contains LOTS of photos My new Filofax Pennybridge arrived this morning from the lovely people at City Organiser
I must first thank them for their first class service. I ordered it at 3.37pm yesterday, it was dispatched at 3.44pm and arrived today. Fantastic!!!!
This is where we start to get photo heavy :)
So here is my package.

The pennybridge doesn't come in a box so was well wrapped in bubble wrap

Then you have the protective wrapping.

Am I building the suspense up yet????
Then we finally got to the Filofax itself.

This next photo probably shows the colour off better.

Filofax describe the Pennybridge as "A classic Filofax design is given a modern update in the Pennybridge. The secure zip-around fastening and closure is well suited for those on the move. Contains a fully functioning purse/wallet area within the organiser. A grain pattern leather-look organiser with a zip closure. Width 123mm, height 208mm."
It features:
Ring mechanism size: 6 rings of 15mm
Left: 14 card pockets, zipped purse/wallet with full functionality
Right: one full depth pocket, elasticated pen loop
Exterior: Full length pocket
So here are some photos of the interior.

It is a gorgeous colour!! I love purple. However, it doesn't lie flat and will need a bit of training.
I will blog once I have got set up in it. Many thanks once again to City Organiser for their service.
I'm off to go and play Filofax.
Thanks for reading. :)

A5 Dodopad for Personal Filofax

A few of us Filofax fans love using the Dodopad. I have the A5, but as I'm currently using Personal size find my dodopad going to waste. A few of us have tried in vain to get a decent grid for the personal size dodopad. It's just not possible apparently.
Tonight, the Dodopad/Filofax fans have hit back with a Dodopad hack plan.
Why not cut down the A5 size Dodopad to fit the personal size Filofax. WIN!!!!! We get a decent sized grid then for writing in, which the current personal size doesn't give us. I can't fit my lectures and other duties in that.


We have decided to hack the current month of March to see how we get on.


The weekly pages. You lose a column off the edge, but I rarely used the last one.

The notes side. Yes you lose the text, but surely Dodopad could work around that in future????

So there we go. Please Dodopad, listen to us. I shall blog again once I have filled it all in and it is in my Filofax.

Thanks for reading.
