Hmmm, I thought....could I bear to part with one of my babies.....no, absolutely not! lol Already done that for hubby, but I recalled I had a "Filofax" copy I bought from Argos in 1996, so I dug it out along with my Filofax stash of inserts and we started to put something together.
The binder is just a little wider than the personal size Filofax but it looks the part.
Next, we added some Filofax inserts. Kieran's Bus Pass, Medical Card and Lunch Card, fit in here lovely. We also added some Sticky labels to the inside front cover.
On the flipside we have more Medical Cards and a Hall pass. Kieran is Type one Diabetic, so these medical cards are perfect in here. We also have the registration page, though I'm hoping, if he ever lost it in school, it would be handed in to a teacher.
His first page is a picture of our late German Shepherd Dog, Shadow. He passed away 2 years ago yesterday and we still miss him very much. Kieran adored Shadow, so he made this picture of him a little while ago.
This is his planner when he goes back to school in September, as you can see, Kieran has decorated the page marker with stickers.....but what 12 year old doesn't like stickers!
More stickers used to decorate the dividers.
One of his drawings.
The back inside cover has a pocket so he's placed his spare stickers in there.
Behind these Sticky labels we have emergency contact information.
Then because this Organiser does not come with a pen holder, we wondered how to attach a pen. Looking through my pen stash, we found this little pen with a ring on it, they come in packs of four from staples and cost £1.99. I found a clip and added it to the pen.
As you can see, it hooks onto the rings very nicely.
So this is Kieran's "Filofax! (well almost). I've explained that if he takes good care of this one, then I will buy him a "real" one, or even give him one of my own...I think my personal Chino would be a good one for a student! I've noticed more and more Filofax users, Children are getting into them too. Maybe this generation will bring them back like they were in the eighties! It would be good if Filofax brought out a "student" refill pack!
