How’s it going?
This morning I was up and ready very early, which meant I had time to organise all of my May Bill Transfers and other boring banking stuff.
After I did that, I decided to input all of my outgoings to my Filofax Month To View pages. Many of you will know that I find it useful to input everything into a month to view and then transfer over to my week to view so I have an overall picture as well as a close day to day knowledge. Especially where bills are concerned as it allows me to track what’s going out etc… I’m really terrible when it comes to finances so it keeps me on the straight and narrow.
Once I’d done that, I STILL had plenty of time so I got out the old Washi Tae and decorated my month to view, like so:
Many of you know, and Ill keep stressing: I find it so important to make something “attractive” to me… A friend of mine was asking me how I stay so organised, and I answered:
“because I’ve spend time and energy and money into something I love to take out and write in. Everything in my Filofax is there to help me and keep me out of trouble, everything in my Filofax is ‘friendly’. What I mean by that, is that my Filofax is not there to tell me what to do, it’s more of a gentle reminder of upcoming events so I can always stay in control. This little bit of control gives me peace of mind in my chaotic little world. But I need to have invested (time, energy, money) in it to get the best out of it.”
What makes you want to use your Filofax more?
