I had previously been quite happy with the setup of the Filofaxes I used as a wallet. I tried them all -- a Slimline, a Compact, a Personal, a Pocket and a Mini. I'd say the best format for me would be the Compact because it was really the 'Goldilocks', just-right, size. A Pocket works quite well too, having a smaller footprint in my handbag.

And that frustrated me no end!
So I fixed the problem.
This time, I chose the pink personal Baroque as my wallet. It was a pity that it was languishing in a dark box somewhere so I took it out and started stuffing it.

ID page in case (heaven forbid!) I lose it.
I kept the original major sections in the previous wallet. I re-did the previous tabs and used some plastic folder material to make them more durable.

But I transported some sections from the home binder that I reference often, namely, the Blog, Shop, Media, and Business sections. I used the Martha Stewart note tabs. What remained in the stay-at-home binder were mostly just very personal and/or financial items.

|I still keep 2 pens: one in a Leuchturn pen loop, the other in the notepad.|
I have also stopped keeping two Calendars. As of this writing, I took out January-June leaving only the 2nd half of the year in. Since I took out most of the lists, the Personal Malden, which used to hold EVERYTHING, has gained some ring space so I moved the Household Binder into it so that everything really is in one place.
And as a parting shot, my Filofax Team of the moment. In the pretty fanned views.
I should know in the next few weeks if this'll work out for me. This is the 1st major Filofax re-jig I've done it quite some time so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I may also just find it's too big to carry around all the time, but I'm willing to test it.
What Filofax do you use as a wallet? How has it worked out for you?
Thanks for visiting!
Update: I was waiting in a coffee shop (with my dog) for my family, and was soooo happy with my new setup. Lists were updated and items checked off while killing time. It's obviously a little bit heavier and thicker but I didn't really notice the weight on my shoulder. So far, so good! (:
