My Filofax Collection - Filofax Friday - Week 14

So last week I did the perfect planner tag and I said that I would show you another time my Filofax collection and what I use them for, well here you go... the time is now lol!

To some it may be a large collection and to others it will be teeny tiny. To me it is my collection and it makes me happy and warms my heart. To me they are perfect and I love using them (bar one!).

Will this be it, forever. Oh no don't be silly! Every planner has a use and there are two more that I would like to get. Last year I used my main A5 Apex and added Christmas to it, this year I am thinking of giving Christmas its own section. Well I think anyway. Whether that will be adding too many to the cooking pot and giving me more to look at I don't know but I really like the idea of making it all Christmassy and I already have a lovely charm for it. The other planner I would like to get is for my veggie patch planning and logging. I am still developing the inserts and am giving them a good trial and testing which is how I came to making and selling my inserts in the first place. Of course I would love a Malden in personal and A5 size too but then that would probably make my others redundant. I don't know.

Some of these you will have seen before and some you will not have but I thought it was quite good to put them all together and to put them into context.

So I will take you on a mini tour of my collection in size and age order not in preference. Are you ready?

So in the pocket range, my first ever Filofax that I purchased in 2002 when I graduated from University at 18 is the pink and brown 'Botanic'. It served me well bless it's little heart and I used it loads and loads. It has really held up to the use and abuse over the years and has very little wear to it. I am now using this as a notebook for my handbag so all it has in it is lined paper.

Next up in the pocket range we have the green and pink 'Petal'. I bought this online, well I bought two actually and one ended up being a giveaway prize. The only downside was it had out of date inserts. I really don't know what to do with it but it is still in my collection for now.

In the personal range I have the purple 'Saffiano' and I am using that for my weight loss and eating diary. If you missed the tour of that you can see that on Filofax Friday Week 9.

Also in the personal size I have the 'Domino' in ultra violet. This is used for my fur babies health, logging when they need check ups, when they last had their claws clipped, health log just to make sure that they are in tippity toppity health.

Moving on to the A5 size I have the 'Apex' in black and orange. This baby is my daily. My everything gets stuffed in their daily. I did a tour of it on Filofax Friday Week 12 if you are interested or missed it.

And then last but bu no means least I have the A5 'Finsbury' in black. Can we say hello darling! Now hand on I said I wouldn't call favourites didn't I lol! Well yes but it is lovely. This little beauty I am using for my written journal.

So that is all in my current collection. I used to have a personal black 'Identity' but I sold that recently as I just didn't like it. Poor thing but I am sorry, we just couldn't bond. It was all in the feel of the plastic-y cover!

I talk much more about these beauties in today's video:

So I hope you have enjoyed my little show and tell of my collection and it has given you a bit more insight into why and what I use them for.

No homework for you this week folks - you get the week off to catch up and if you are caught up, get out there in this lovely Spring weather and enjoy!

There is no download for this week but I wanted to remind you that I never delete for download links so please do feel free to go back through past weeks and download any that you may be missing. There will be more downloads in the future I am sure of it, just that not all weeks require it or it is relevant. Please note that the inserts that I am offering as freebies as part of this series are different to the ones that I sell, so if you have already purchased a set of my inserts these are in addition for you. If you haven't purchased any of my inserts and would like to or just have a nose at them you can view them in my Etsy shop here. Please note: These inserts are entirely free and a gift from me and only the inserts provided are free, I say this because I know some people might prefer one of the other designs that I offer but it is only the ones in the freebie set on offer at this time.

Coming Soon...
I am in talks at the moment with some lovely ladies who own Etsy stores themselves and we are going to be collaborating together to bring you a massive, no wait, MASSIVE giveaway and lots of advice if you are just starting out in the day planner world. As a sneaky peeky, there may just be a filofax included in the giveaway so stay tuned for that and tell all your friends too!


Thank you for watching / reading folks and enjoy your planning.

Remember your planner will only work for you and help keep you organised and on track if you use it.
