As most of you know, I'm a bit of a Filofax fanatic. I'm not one of those people who have loads of binders but I love the ones I do have and I'm one of those rare people who has found the exact style of planning which works for them and who are happy with their set up and the binder they use. The Filofax I have for everyday use is a Malden in crimson which is a personal size and I also use a red A5 Chameleon for household planning and finances. I do have two or three other binders but I don't actually use them.
I was looking at the Filofax website not long before Christmas and I came across the Illustrated Diary Packs. I hadn't seen them before so I think they're fairly new. They come in Stripes, Geometric and Floral designs and I thought how lovely one of those would look in my Filofax. I duly wrote it on my Christmas wish list and I was lucky enough to receive the Floral pack, the one I preferred, as a Christmas gift.
I usually spend a lovely time between the Christmas and New Year period putting new pages in my Filofax and setting them up ready for the year ahead but owing to everything which was going on with my dad being in hospital at this time and feeling ill myself, I didn't get round to setting everything up until after 2017 began. I found an hour or two on Wednesday to get everything sorted out.
I'm very impressed with the diary pack, the diary pages themselves are adorned with a pretty floral design and they're lined too which I much prefer to plain pages.
Included in the pack are monthly dividers and on the back of each one is a monthly planner.
The pack also contains ruled notepaper, plain notepaper and to do pages.
I'm really pleased with the pack and how attractive it's made my Filofax look.
If you'd like to read more about how I use my Filofax, I did A Tour Of My Filofax Crimson Malden post back in 2014 and though I've changed a few things round since then, removing some sections and adding others as things change, it's still essentially the same. That's the great thing about a Filofax, it's so versatile so as things change in your life, you can swap things around in your planner.
How about you? Do you use a planner? Have you ever used a Filofax? I'd love to hear what style of planning works for you.
