It's something that I'm mocked for by older relatives and my friends alike. Despite being a Gen Y baby (and one is more addicted to the internet than most) when it comes to organisation I'm very much a pen and paper girl. I pay up for a high end Android smartphone each time my contract needs renewed, however no matter how many calender apps I've tried I always keep coming back to my Filofax.
A Filofax for life!
If I could develop a way to organise my life through a smart phone, I would. However I'm sticking with my pen and paper. And when it comes to pen and paper I consider the Filofax to be in a league way above a basic diary. It will be five years this summer since I made the jump to a Filofax, and I don't foresee myself switching to anything else, ever. I'm very loyal to my Filofax, and not just loyal - brand loyal. When purchasing my recent Filofax I did consider purchasing a binder diary from Paperchase or WHSmith, but Filofax is still a cut above. There's a ton of inserts available on the Filofax website but if none of them take your fancy there's shops upon shops on Etsy dedicated to quirky and alternative options.
A Filofax is beyond customisable and the possibilities are endless. There's people who use theirs to budget, parents who use to keep on track of their household and bloggers who have organisers just dedicated to their blog. I've got a basic way of organising mine, but everyone is different!
How do you use your Filofax?
