My Household Filofax


Hello everyone, I'm back!  Nearly 2 months since I last blogged, but  I've being busy with my other hobby...Crochet!  Anyhow, here we go......

My household Filofax!  Some of you may recognise a lot of the contents from this blog I did back in September, but I've switched organisers, I am using my A5 Malden for something else (blog to follow soon).  I am now using my A5 Zipped Wine Holborn.  It's a lovely Filofax, I only wish it came with bigger rings like the Malden, this one only as 25mm rings, but saying that, it does hold a fair bit.

So this is the inside. Lots going on as you can see.  The bottom pocket is ideal to hold a calculator and as I use this Filofax to manage our finances, it's ideal to have a calculator in there without having to use valuable ring space with Filofax's own calculator.

On the right is a  Martha Stewart Dry Erase Label, I have an erasable pen so I can write quick notes on this, then wipe them off.  It's stuck on a clear plastic flyleaf and is removable too.

I use 2 lots of A-Z tabs and covered them with stickers so each tab as it's own letter.




















This is my Christmas section, I have used another Avery Pocket Tab to hold Christmas present Receipts.


I love the free Diary inserts from Philofaxy. 


I also had a monthly fold out calendar to help with my planning.  You can find my 2013 version here.


There is a lot more in this Filofax, but I've reviewed it on my Malden Review, so you can see more on the video should you wish to.

My A5 Zipped Holborn in wine, beautiful isn't it.

Thanks everyone for reading, more blog posts coming up soon, still have lots to write about!

    1. Thanks hun, good to be back! I could blog loads, it's just uploading and changing photo format that takes me ages to do, so it puts me off a little.

  3. I love seeing all that you have done with your filofax's. Do you have a crochet/craft filofax? I also love to crochet and would like to see how you would set up a filofax for this. I have ordered my very first filofax and expect to receive it later this week - exciting! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hiya Yarniegirl

      I did used to have a Crochet Filofax going. I printed out all my finished projects and added them. I also had a list of printed stuff I wanted to do. I don't have it anymore though, I needed to use the Organiser for something else so got rid of the stuff in it.
