New Filofax Personal layout - Landscape week on two pages

This one began as a request from a Philofaxy reader who asked for a version of the Filofax Week-To-View Horizontal layout that wan't quite so discourteous to weekends:

The obvious enhancement here would be to put four days across the page rather than three, but we worried that then the columns would be too narrow. Our reader agreed, and came up with what Steve and I thought was a fantastic idea. See if you agree:

Weekend days are afforded as much respect as those in the working week, while each week's layout ends with a 'Notes / Next Week' space.

You can download this layout as a prepared set or you can download the source files to adapt the design for yourself.

Pre-prepared sets

You can download the 2012 set as a Word file or as a PDF file.

You can download the 2013 set as a Word file or as a PDF file.

Print this double-sided. If you have a duplex printer, set it to flip on the short edge. If you don't then you'll have to print odd-numbered pages and then refeed to print the even-numbered pages on the reverse. You might have to experiment to find out how to refeed the paper.

On one side of each sheet you'll find crop marks. Use a craft knife and a steel ruler to release the Personal pages and punch them. The templates are set up with mirrored gutters to accommodate the holes.

If using the PDF be sure to set it to print at full size as explained here.

Source files

You can also roll your own using our source files. You'll need this Word file and this Excel file.

If you want to know how to go about using the source files, this post will help you.
