This was a recent $3 flea market find. I have discovered a couple of brand new Filofaxes at flea markets lately, probably because the greater masses no longer use them. This one is brand spanking new and pocket sized! I am still in my pocket Belmont but if I change or add a second binder to my routine, this will be it.
I do have a personal-sized Tejus in the same colour, though I have never used it. I will definitely use this one if my pocket journey continues. It has a nice layout, and I have always liked the Tejus leather.
Because this binder is old (probably from the early 1990s), it has 4 rings, instead of the newer 6-ring pocket-size configuration. This binder works perfectly well for me though, because the holes in the paper I use are spaced to fit both the old and the new ring systems. All Burde (the brand I use) inserts have hole spacing that works in multiple formats, and I have plenty of older Filofax inserts from when Filofax used to make inserts that fit both. They have stopped doing that now, so if I need extra holes on new paper, I use my personal-sized hole punch to get the holes in the paper right for this size.
Here is a comparison between my pocket Belmont and the pocket Tejus. As you can see, the Tejus is smaller and more compact
So good! TFS Janet
I bought a brand new blue Tejus (pocket size too) about a year ago and I really like it. I appreciate that it is light. I was looking for a red one but they seem impossible to find contrary to green and blue ones.
Your find is great! I hope your pocket journey goes smoothly 🙂
I would love a blue and red one but I have never seen either! I am so happy in pocket because I can take it anywhere!
The green is so hopeful!
It is a lovely colour. Strangely it is a lot more vibrant than the personal-sized one.
That was really a good find fo $3.00 and a beautiful color too. Personally I prefer my binders with a full back pocket for different uses. Can I order that Burde insert on line? I live in Italy. Thanks
You could try! The link to contact the retailer is email@example.com – you can write in English, show them my blog photo, and tell them what size you want. If that does not work, let me know and I will get you some and post them.
That is gorgeous, but having downsized to pocket this year I’m not sure I could give up the back pocket.
I am not sure either, particularly as I am using the wallet pocket in the Belmont to store extra notepaper.
Including that full-length slip pocket across the whole outside of a binder really adds bulk. I’m not a fan of that at all. The Tejus is a much better design.
