Filofax Personal inserts for Letter Paper users

I get a lot of email from North Americans, frustrated that they can't use my A4-based templates. It seems the American government won't step in and adopt the system the rest of the world uses. So Plan B it is, then.

Converting all the inserts will be a long-term project, but to get the ball rolling, I'm releasing three Filofax Personal inserts in Letter Paper format for you to download, print and use. Follow the header links to the original blog posts for each of these if you want more information on their use.

1. Don't Forget pages

Download as a Word file or as a PDF file.

2. Weekly Habits Tracker

Download as a Word file or as a PDF file.

3. Weekly Meals Planner

Download 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 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.

Further inserts will be converted gradually until the full back-catalogue is available in this format, but this won't be a short job.

For those living in the US you can go to for A4 & A5 paper and binders
Also I have had good luck telling printer to "print to size of paper" and setting the paper to 8.5x11
