Filofax pros and cons: my A5 collection

After now purchasing another three filofaxes in the last month, I thought it was more than high time to take stock.  So, here we go - a pros and cons (and uses) of all my filofaxes/binders.
First up: A5

Pros
Cons
Current use/location

Red Finchley
Gorgeous leather; fabulous colour
Bit too squishy – feels like the smallest thing might damage it
It was my book-o-fax, but I outgrew it and now it’s holding spare paper etc.
Bottom drawer of my desk
No
Gorgeous leather (though a waxier feel than the red one); interesting colour
Bit too squishy. Colour interesting rather than gorgeous
Holding my filopal letters and paper etc.
On the bookcase next to my desk
No
Red domino (1)
Great colour; sturdy cover; cheap; 30 mm rings
Non-leather; weird smell when new
Book-o-fax volume 1
On the bookcase next to my desk
No
Red domino (2)

Mulberry ‘Big Indie
Gorgeous leather; beaten up look; sexy as hell
Um, none. I’m in love
Currently holding a print-out of a book I’m halfway through writing
It’s also on the bookcase next to my desk
Ha ha ha ha ha
No
Mulberry ‘crocodile tummy
It’s a Mulberry
It’s not in great condition and the leather is an interesting rather than beautiful colour
It’s my work binder – stays at work; holds my work diary and notes
No

Eek. I hadn’t really thought about the fact that I have seven A5 filofaxes and two A5 Mulberry binders. But at least they are almost all in use!

Which is more than can be said for the personal size binders... walk of shame coming next!
