Moleskine vs. Filofax

First off I'm going to say, ever since I found Gala Darling (I don't remember when) she has influenced me. That's why, for the last 2 years I've been using a Moleskine Planner, in 2009 it was a hard cover black daily planner, this year I'm using a soft cover weekly notes planner. After this year, I've decided to go back to a daily planner, because I like having the day on a whole page, it means I have more room to scribble all the important (and unimportant) things. But I have recently read, that Gala has moved on to Filofax. I had a Filofax, it was sky blue and huge, it was very bulky, but it was one that I had purchased in town, and I didn't know there was so many different types to choose from. Like these two:

Moleskine's are expensive, but these Filofax are even more so. But you can reuse a Filofax every year, but with my style and likes changing regularly I don't want to be stuck with something expensive that I'll use once and then put in a box somewhere (like my sky blue Filofax)
Maybe I should find my old one and give it another try.
But sitting here and thinking. I'll probably end up with a new Moleskine Daily Planner, maybe this time in Red.
Now I'm going to watch Bored To Death.
mmm... Jason Schwartzman.

Edit - July 14th
When I get paid I'm going to order a 2011 Red Moleskine Daily
They're on sale at Fishpond.com.au
Hopefully they will still be on sale.

  1. Ahah, okay, so, I ciould have written this post, because these thoughts have been going on in my head ever since Gala's filofax post.

    My first moleskine was a day to a page, and I'm currently using a 16-month Weekly notebook, but have decided next year i'll probably go back to the day per page.

    I've always loved filofaxs, however, they are probably out of my pricerange. I do love Moleskines though & even though its only July, i'm alreasdy getting excited about the prospect of new stationary!

  2. I think I'll go for the red daily planner, because you get stickers with it (and I looooovvvvveeeee stickers)
    I love buying stationery :) almost tempted to study some more just so I can purchase stationery. :)
