Day Planner for your A5 Filofax

Filofax make an undated 'Day Planner' in Personal size. It looks like this (picture from the Filofax UK website):

I've always thought this was a handy insert for people like me who can usually cope with a week-to-view diary, but who have the odd day that requires more extensive planning and scheduling.

But Filofax don't make one of those in A5 size. So I decided to make my own. Broadly, I stuck to the same design, but the bottom section on the front page - "Don't Forget" - didn't do anything for me. It struck me that the 'To Do' section had pretty much covered that. So in my version, the lower third is a place to log people you need to contact where you can note what you want to talk to them about, how you plan to do it (by calling, emailing or meeting them) and to track successful completion.

Here's my front page:

The insert is available as an editable Word file and as a PDFfile. Either way, it is set up as an A4 document for you to print in booklet mode and then cut in half. Mirrored gutters allow space for the holes to be punched.
