Filofax minimalist page per day diary - now in Personal and Pocket to download

When Steve and I published the minimalist A5 diary, more than one person asked for Personal or Pocket versions. We are making both available today.

Pocket version - click to enlarge

As in the A5 version, there are no time slots and no visual clutter, just a clear date block and light, ruled lines.

It would be ideal as a diary, but might work well alongside - say - a week to view being used as an appointments diary, where this new layout is used to record notes or to log date-specific information.

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 2013 Personal set as a Word file or as a PDF file.

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

Print these 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 or Pocket 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. For Personal size, you'll need this Word file and this Excel file.  For Pocket size, you'll need this Word file instead (the same Excel file drives both Personal and Pocket versions.)

If you want to know how to go about using the source files, this post will help you. If you look at the 'Free Diary Pages' link in the navigation bar above, you'll find some videos which explain the mail merge process for different generations of the Office application, too.
