My favourite Travellers Notebook – Cori

Today we start the first in this new series with Cori from ‘

Q1. What is your favourite Travellers Notebook cover (Make/model/size)?

My favorite TN cover is my Foxy Fix Marina Le Petite #5, the B6 size.

Q2. How long have you owned it?

Since July 2016, but I was participating in #onebookJuly2016, so I didn’t actually set it up or anything until August. But I’ve been using it ever since.

Q3. What is it that you like about it so much?

The B6 size, 7″ x 5″, is the perfect size for me for multiple reasons. My local stores always have notebooks in this size and they’re pretty cheap. I love that I don’t have to rely on ordering online and WAITING (I hate waiting) for the inserts to show up.

Q4. Do you use it all the time?

Yes, it is my EDC. I have my blogging insert, a dashboard, a folder, my monthly/weekly combo insert, my daily/journaling insert, and a brain dump book in the back.

Q5. Do you think the design could be improved in any way? How?

Design improvements depend on the designer. I wish there was more flexibility in terms of choosing pockets for the TNs. I don’t care for the card slot style pockets in the front of the TN. I would prefer secretarial pockets in the front and the back.

Minimalist Every Day Carry

There are quite a few times I don’t want to carry my usual planner and ‘man bag’ such as one day this week when we were going out to lunch.

So I adapted what I really needed for a short trip out of the house for a few hours.

So I grabbed my Gillio Intelligent Wallet, this holds 6 cards and has an internal storage slot for paper money, my iPhone 6 and my Filofax Flex Leather Slim Notebook cover.


The Filofax Flex has a gusseted pocket on the front inside cover which will take my iPhone 6 easily still with its case on too. Tucked in there it wouldn’t be a distraction during our meal! The pen is my usual Uniball Vision Elite rollerball

The Flex Slim takes notebooks that are 15cm by 8.5cm not a common size. You can of course buy replacements from Filofax but I made this one myself with a simple template and followed the instructions by Ray Blake in his video. I kept the number of pages down to just 12 pages and added a card-stock cover, it keeps it fairly slim and compact. I used Clairefontaine 80gsm paper for the notebook.


The three together fit easily together and fit comfortably in my jacket pocket.


I will be using this combination quite a lot more for short trips out, if I think of something I need to remember I will have a notebook ready to hand every time.
