I’ve just recently jumped onto the Filofax bandwagon!
There are a number of different kinds of planner systems out there. My whole life I’ve used a planner system called Complete Utter Chaos (it’s free). Then I discovered the Filofax fad on Pintrest and I’m all like ‘seriously? this is a thing?’. I’ve always wanted ways to decorate and do cool things to my planners at school, but I grew up in Nelson New Zealand where an iPad is a crayon drawing on a bit of cardboard.
I was originally planning to use just a regular binder as my planner and set it up similar to a filofax because I preferred a $10 big binder to a $60 Filofax that could fit in your pocket. Until I found a Filofax in the bargain bin for $30. It was probably in there because the cover was scratched, but it’s in my fave colour and if it’s going in my handbag and everywhere else it’s going to get scratches anyway. I’m happy with my planners looking used!
The calendar is for 2014 so I can’t use it yet LOL. I had what was supposed to be a brilliant idea to solve that problem which I will show you later.
The cover is purple! My fave colour! And it has a nice big elastic to close it. The scratches are visible in this picture but I’m not at all worried about them. Everything else works perfectly fine. And maybe I will stick things to the cover in the future.
Day 1. I got the pen from a church event, and that’s what I’m sticking to because it sounds a lot better than “I can’t remember if I stole a pen from a church”
Shame I can’t use this calendar till 2014.
Some-how ended up with two refills of lined notepaper.
I did them out of order and too small 😦
Of course no-ones bought them yet. They’re still all too busy trying to figure out cellotape!
Update 19/11/2013 :
OMG! Philofaxy put this on one of their Web Finds posts!
