Planner comparison: Malden vs Aston

A quick comparison between the Filofax Malden and Filofax Aston, both in personal size. Have had the video up on YT for a while now, but am only getting around to doing the chart now. As usual, I hope this helps anyone in deciding which planner would suit them most.

PS: excuse my nails! You will be seeing them in a few videos. I really needed do something about them, but had wanted to get the videos recorded, before the light outside faded completely.
