Another blog already :D.
I have already customized my filofax to my liking and wanted to share the results. Note I took out most of the given pages, as I found I would have no real use to them.
The pages I removed were the A to Z dividers, the 1 to 6 dividers,the starting intro pages, Jan to March diary pages, and the coloured note pages.
Whilst the filofax coloured sheets were pretty, there was only 2 of each colour, I would want more to make it worthwhile. I do like everything matching and wasn't prepared to purchase more filofax branded notes.
The currencies and public holidays seem useful but realistically I would not that as a reference when I'm out and about, especially as I always have my smart phone handy.
And yes as you may of guessed pink is my favorite colour.
I tried to make the filofax as pretty as I could, with bright colours as I believe in colour therapy and besides its nice to look at. :)
Here is my new improved customized filofax.
As you can see I haven't found use for the credit pockets yet, apart from holding stickies in the rear pocket. I created a front page simply by printing out a colourful design and glueing it to cardboard enforce it.
I made a post it page and the perfume page is a cut out from a magazine. The glossy page will prove a good 'dashboard'page to stick 'to-do' notes plus the perfume sample smells gooood!
Heres the side view,in my previous post I mentioned I would use the fluro avery note tabs to create dividers. Which is what i did.
Here is the rear view of the post it note page, I fastened the various post it note pages with double sided tape to secure the notes whilst in transit. As you can see I created a thin to do note slip. This is a handy way for me to use up the scrap paper I had left over from creating inserts.
My diary Just an example of how I have prettied up my filofax. The more stickers the better!
This is the yearly calendar sheet I printed off.Also I have purchased some tiny Korean diary stickers to use with this page, as the the individual dates are too compact to write much. I will use the stickers for key dates such as exams, holidays, exercise and so on.
The end of my filofax. I printed plenty of the to-do notes and they have already started being useful. I put pretty things in my plastic slip as well as important items such as my movie voucher.
Just a bottom view, the bottom tabs are for the months.
Lastly the back view. I took out the filofax note pad as I can just put notes in the various sections in my filofax. I have used the rear space to keep sticky reminders.
Im glad I didn't buy the A5, this personal size is perfect for my uni bag and it is so easy to print off inserts.
I have already planned out my notes and have started using it daily. Such a great purchase.:D
Thanks for looking and I hope I have given you some ideas of how you can customize your own organizer.
