As many of you know, I love Filofaxes, and so I thought that I would make Fridays my day for posting about…wait for it…Filofaxes, hence the name ‘Filofax Friday’!
Because it’s the start of a new year I thought today I would do a quick post on how I’m going to use my Filofaxes this year and which ones I will be using.
This year, I am going to be running three separate Filofaxes. I usually run two – one personal and one for work – but because I have a new business about to launch I will be using a third organiser to keep me on track with that. As I work from home anyway all I have to do is look at each one first thing every morning and I immediately know where I have to be and what needs to be done.
So, the first Filofax I will be using is my personal espresso Siena which I bought last year and I absolutely love. Despite having bought several (yes several) new personal sized Filofaxes last year, the Siena is still my favourite and so I will continue to use it this year for organising my personal life.
My business Filofax this year is a lovely new A5 purple Finchley. This replaces the A5 aqua Finsbury which I used in 2011. Some people who don’t understand my Filofax
addiction obsession habit love have tried to explain to me that I don’t have to have a new Filofax at the start of every year but I have now perfected a blank stare and they eventually give up.
Finally, because of my new venture ‘Handmade by Yvie’ being launched this year (very shortly so watch this space) I needed one final organiser. At first I thought I would use the personal, tomato Bloomsbury that I bought in the Filofax Germany sale but, after thinking carefully about it, I eventually decided on my lovely pink A5 Flex. I also intend to use this as my blog organiser as well. The Flex really is very…well…flexible.
So there you have it. Those are the organisers which will (hopefully) be keeping me on track this year. I’ll explain more about how I will use each one in future posts.
Until the next time,
