I've written about my love of Filofaxes on my blog before. Diary Love, It's Here and A Tour Of My Filofax Crimson Malden are a few of the posts in which they've been mentioned previously. Although I love my crimson Malden Filofax, I've been coveting the Malden in ochre and when I saw it for sale at a bargain price, I just had to have it.
I'm ashamed to say that I've now had it for quite a while, yet it's still in the plastic sleeve in which it came. I haven't yet thought of a use for it as all the information I need is already recorded in either my crimson Malden or my A5 red Chameleon. I obviously didn't really need this new Filofax, especially as my favourite is, and I'm sure always will be, my crimson Malden, but I just couldn't resist it. Here it is, taken out of its plastic sleeve.
There's so many different Filofax models but I've definitely found my favourite in the Malden. I love the feel of the leather, its rugged looks and the layout of the inside pockets work for me.
Here are my Maldens side by side. The crimson looks much bigger than the ochre but that's just because it's so stuffed.
You can see the difference from the top. The ochre will fill out as soon as I start filling it up.
Here's my whole Filofax family. I use my A5 Chameleon as a household file, recording finances and household information, and my crimson Malden holds my diary and my day to day information. I tried using the pocket vintage pink Malden but it's just too small for me and I have to say that I'm not that keen on the colour so it isn't used any longer.
I'm definitely putting a stop to any more Filofax purchases now, I've got my favourites.
