Unstuff your Filofax with an undated monthly calendar

Who else has a Filofax that is straining at the seams? If you're like me, part of the problem is the almost completely blank diary pages from 6 months hence. I started thinking about this and realised that I only really needed to have a detailed view of the next two months or so. But I was reluctant to just carry those because now and then I have to note down more distant events.

My solution was to produce an undated monthly calendar page. I printed, punched and filled in a set for the rest of the year and slimmed down my binder quite considerably. Here is an example sheet:

There is a column next to the dates. You can either write in letters for the days (M, T, W...) or you can do what I've done and shade the weekends.

Now I can capture appointments and events several months out without overstuffing the binder. As the month comes nearer, I can transcribe these details onto the main diary sheets for that month and insert them.

You can download this double-sided page in either editable Word format or PDF format. Either way, print double-sided and trim using the printed crop marks.
