Filofax Friday #1: initial set-up

A few weeks ago, I started noticiting more and more videos on Filofax planners on Youtube. First Rhomany did one, and then Courtney did one, or the other way around, I forgot... They started me off watching many, many videos on the wonderful world of Filofax, and in the end, I just knew I had to get one...

After much research and keeping my budget in mind, I had my eye on a Finsbury on Amazon, so I ordered it. It was set to 'shipped' quickly, but a week later and just as I was about to contact the seller asking why my Filofax was taking so long, I got a note saying that sadly it was no longer in stock, but I could order another model for just £12 extra.... Hmmmm... fishy!!

So off to Staples I went and picked up the purple Saffiano in personal size instead!

In the video, you'll see me go through my Filofax, explaining things along the way. Enjoy!

For now, I'm happy with this set-up. I like the sections I have, and how I'm using them so far. I do not colour-code, but who knows, I might find myself using the same colours for the same items over and over and hey presto!, I'm colour-coding! We'll just have to wait and see what happens, as things have a way of developing on their own, so it seems.

And before I forget: this is where I got my little box of sticky notes, and the idea of Ta Da!-lists came from Mellamenia.

There. I think that's it for now. I'm sure you'll be seeing lots more Filofax Friday updates in the next few weeks.
