A Peek Into My Life: What's Inside My Filofax!

________________________

Ever since I bought my very first Metropol Filofax in raspberry, I have been hooked. Remember when I wrote about my Filofax mania? I still have it! After using my Metropol for a year, I decided to upgrade to a Classic Filofax in pink. After several days of impatient Fed-Ex stalking, my brand new organizer arrived in the mail. I quickly scooped the contents of my old Filofax and re-organized them inside my new planner. 

I have received several requests through email & comments asking for a post about the inside of my Filofax. One of the things I love the most about my Filofax besides the amazing quality & vibrant color is the versatility. I also adore how customizable these organizers are. It's effortless to personalize your Filofax    and set it up to meet your organizational needs. It's a phenomenal product that fills my life with colorful glee & keeps me on track. I'm definitely smitten with Filofaxes!

I use the front pockets of my Filofax to store stamps, post-its, sticky tabs, and important notes. I created the front page with some of my favorite pictures, a sheet of scrapbook paper, and some colorful stickers. I love to open my Filofax and see a burst of color. It's very inspiring.

I have a small pocket pouch that I put inspiring pictures in every week. Sometimes I put small momentos or little reminders inside the pouch. Right now, I have a Instax pic of Apollo, one of my favorite pictures from Pinterest, and a card from my best friend.

I'm completely obsessed with sticky tabs & post-its. I use them like they are going out of style.

I have several pages filled with important business cards from my contacts & favorite businesses. It's very easy to look up a phone number or website just by flipping through my business card section.

I use the to-do section of my Filofax the most. I make weekly & daily to-do lists, especially during busy weeks. I just ordered a new package of to-do list sheets because I use them so frequently. It has really helped me stay focused & productive.

I love to write down my favorite things of the moment in the gratitude list section of my Filofax. Whenever something makes me smile or laugh, I quickly jot it down. I use the gratitude list section to help me compose my "Thankful Thursday" blog posts. It's also fun to sit down and write out an entire page of things that make me happy.

I use the calendar section to write down all of my important (& not so important)appointments & schedule out my time for the week. I make my own schedule for work, so I usually document my school schedule and fill in the blanks with work times. I also write down dates with my friends and reminders.

I journal about my struggles with feeling anxious in the anxiety section of my Filofax. It has been very helpful in quelling my anxiety, especially when I start feeling anxious during the day.

The very last page of my Filofax has my favorite pictures that I have taken myself. None of them are photographic masterpieces, but they all have sentimental meaning to me.

I adore the colorful note paper. I pull out sheets of this to jot down grocery lists, reminders, and notes to my friends.

Wow! Your Filofax looks AMAZING! I am totally going to check them out now! I wish I was as artsy as you, but sadly, I have no creative talent whatsoever... :( I'm scared that my filofax will never look as attractive and inspiring. Well, I'm just going to daydream for now! :P

My iPhone is my 'filofax' but I love love love yours!! I love having something physical like that to use instead of just my phone to organize. Loved this post!

Samantha Jenkins said...

Thanks for sharing! Your last post about filofax-love helped to inspire me to create my own (http://thesoulstudiouk.blogspot.com/2012/01/getting-organised.html) ...and this inside peek has given me some more food for thought! :)

There should be MORE PINK FILOFAXES in the world!! Your set-up looks great.

Ellie said...

I love your set up, so inspiring!
Where did you get the insert for photo graphs, at the back of your filofax? Been looking EVERYWHERE on the internet for something like this!

I never buy any planner, binder, or anything. I always make my own, but looks like it's time to step out of my independent-girl life. I'm going to try filofax for 2014, I hope mine looks as pretty as yours!

When you I saw your idea I thought this is perfect I need this. Then I saw your Cork and Pig business card and thought how cool, I know where that place is and I am from there too!! That is my home town!! I was feeling home sick then after seeing this and your cards I feel so much better. Really neat, thank you for the idea.
