Back to Filofax I go…

Hi Everyone!

As yo may or may not be aware, I’ve been in the Traveler’s Notebook for about a month.  I loved it, for notes etc.  NOT for a diary or schedule planner.  I couldn’t get my brain around it!  I longingly looked to my trusty Ozzie Osterley time and time again, but thought I’d stick it out in the TN.  I couldn’t do it.  My creative juices were in full swing, I wanted tabs, dividers, today markers, laminated pages, RINGS!  The itch was too great.  I began some point the end of the week and Saturday evening saw me not on the dance floor, but laminating and cutting dividers out for my new setup.  Not much different to my usual Filofax setup either, I just tweaked it a little…  here’s my current setup that I’m working with.



I found this little postcard in paper chase – I love it!


Haven’t you seen this divider before?  It’s been recycled from my old stash of dividers 🙂


On the back of the diary tab I have a “clipboard” printout, I’ve popped post it flags on.

You’ll also see my event sticker flyleaf.


Then we have my week on two pages (printouts from Philofaxy and My Life All If One Place).  I still use the colour code system but instead of different colour frixxion pens, I’m using one black pen and highlighting with a corresponding colour (green – bills, orange – appointments, pink – reminders, yellow – social).  My today marker I made myself by cutting out photographs that I liked from the internet – the first is a Swim Deep Lyric (a local Brummie band, the song is called Honey).  The second is a coffee cup, the third is a Courteeners photo and the last one is just one that says “dream”.


This is perhaps the main addition I have to show you today – My A-Z tabs have been remodelled into Jan-Dec & Year tabs.  Behind all tabs I’ve stuck the month to view…  like so:


Again you’ll see I’m using the black pen and highlighters 🙂


This is a printout from Philofaxy – the year view of 2015 so I can plan ahead if need be.


Another recycled divider – my personal section has made a reappearance.  Behind this will eventually be a personal information section (something I’ve not got around to yet!)


You’ll see I have 3 top tabs after my personal divider.  The first is my bills tab:


With a postcard taped to the back of the divider.


Then I have my Lists – christmas present list, favourite things I like etc.  Just little things that make me – me.


Then I have my Notes section.  The song is Talk Tonight by Noel Gallagher.  I loved the Noel and Gem Archer semi version they did in 2006 :).  Notes is purely a catch all for my brain.


Then we’re back to the side tabs, my matrix coding printout perfect for my Passwords tab.


Passwords page.


And finally – my travel tab – hold my maps, tube information, world time zones etc…


There we have it!  My setup – pretty simple, huh?

Have you tweaked your setup lately?

Lots of love
