Filofax

I never thought crafting can be so addictive---- and expensive!

First it was rubber stamps, washi tapes, mod podge then Project Life. Now I want Filofax! Hehe 

Meron na bang filofaxers here? Saw in instagram it's big in US and other countries.

I ordered one from totandmom in instagram. Can't wait! I bought washi tapes, colored pens and other stuff for crafting before.  Buti di na masyado magastos pag start na with filofax.

Share your pics if you are doing filofax na sisses.

I have 3 Filofax. The first two pina-order ko then yung last naman nakita ko kay Hobby Depot sa IG.

1. Personal Metropol in Pink
2. Pocket Amazona in Almond
3. Compact Saffiano in Raspberry

While I like the Filofax, I have a hard time with it kasi nakukulangan ako sa space. Marami kasi akong To Do. Lumalabas pa dinadagdagan ko yung pages to suit my needs. Now, bumili ako ng Erin Condren Life Planner. I like the idea na personalized talaga siya down to the stickers and naka-breakdown yung day into Morning, Afternoon and Evening plus may To Do and Goals list! Inaantay ko nalang dumating yung package.

Hello girls, happy to know na may mga planner addicts din pala dito :D
Here's how my story goes ---
Started with Compact Nylon Franklin Covey last year as my planner. Really sturdy with pages similar to Filo's Personal.
Then the addiction kicked in. I got a Personal Purple Domino -- got addicted in watching youtube videos on various set up -- wanted a real leather planner, but since a Malden is way to costly if I ship it from the US or Europe, opted for a proudly Philippine Made FINO Leatherware in Gray Croc Embossed Leather (Compact / Personal Sized).
Few weeks ago, my prayers were answered -- I saw a Purple Personal Malden on stock -- so syempre, pina reserve ko na -- and yes, I will be getting it next week. Yahooo!!
So you ask, what do I do with all those planners? hehe.
Share ko lang sis.

The Franklin Covey Nylon Compact has the following set up :
1. Prayer Tab
2. The Feast Notes (I take down notes sa sessions I attend to and cut out fave parts of the weekly newsletter as inspiration)
3. A to Z Tabs (To compartmentalize my notes and thoughts ala-Filing Cabinet)

The FINO Leatherware (Medium Sized) Croc pattern: My Agenda
1. Month on 2 Pages
2. Week on 2 Pages / Daily Planner
3. Project Tab (for current projects I'm working on)

The Filofax Personal Purple Domino:  My Fitness Planner
1. Fitness Goals Tab : Weekly Objectives, Motivational cutouts, etc
2. Workout Tab: Pictures of Workouts in proper form to further motivate, Workout Log (Date, Type of Workout, Routine, Reps, Sets, Notes, Time, etc)
3. Weekly Measurements / Stats Tab: (Body [textspeak!], Body Fat %, Muscle Mass, Body Age, Visceral Fat, Notes, etc)
4. Food Log / Nutrition Tab: (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner / Water Intake / Vitamins / Sleep Time)
5. Grocery List Tab:
6. Notes Tab : (For references, etc)

I hope this helps..

Oh, I also have a small LV Monogram Agenda which I use as my wallet and Daily Expense Tracker.

XS. When my Personal Purple Malden comes, I bet there would be another overhaul for my set up... Most likely, I will be using it for my Personal Growth Goals, Motivation, Vision Board / Notebook,  and what have yous..

I actually was contemplating on getting the Red A5 Metropol for my work planning -- pero sobra na. tama na muna :D

^My gosh! You're like me! haha When I got my Filofax, naubos oras ko sa YT kakatingin ng setup nila. Now naman sa Erin Condren ako nanunuod ng mga videos.

The Malden is to die for! Check mo Philofaxy, Malden ang favorite ng mga hardcore Filofax owners dun plus you can print various inserts and see their setup. They even have a Filofax meet!

Sis Heatherette ,
Torn nga ako sa Malden Personal o Metropol A5 eh..
Parang magandang work binder si Metropol and magandang dalhin sa mga meetings kasi mas marami kang malalagay at half lang sya ng A5 sheet --
nga lang, sabi nila, mabigat daw ang mga A5 at hindi basta bastang ma bitbit?
What are your thoughts on it?

^Hanggang Personal lang ako kasi nalalakihan din ako kay A5 pero ayun nga marami ka malalagay at malaki ang space ng weekly page which I find lacking sa Personal.

Do you use your compact and pocket as a wallet? How's your metropol? Sabi not easily scratched daw? Si domino naman, yung suede nya prone sa dirt and yung gilid ng covers, nag ninisnis :/ mas gamit ko tuloy yung Fino black gray leather ko :/

^No. I don't use them as wallets. Ang wallet ko kasi maliit lang, like kasya lang bills and cards haha Di ko rin ginagamit ngayon sila kasi I received my Erin Condren and the layout fits me perfectly.

Metropol was my first Filofax, yes, it's not easily scratched kahit smooth ang exterior.

^Yes, they transfer it to an A5 Filofax.

No, I don't plan on selling them. Medyo mahirap din kasi hanapin yung Filofax kaya I keep them nalang :)

Hi sisses. I'm busy watching videos din and waiting for my personal malden that i ordered. Got an aqua.  Hay..can't wait. Glad there are filofaxers here. Do you do swaps too? Saw in instagram that users swap stickers, biokmarks etc. that theu use for their filofaxes.

Dun sa group na sinalihan ko for my planner they do this RAK (Random Act of Kindness). They send stuff for free sa mga members. Ikaw bahala ano gusto mo ipadala - washi tape samples, stickers, cut out scrapbook paper, etc...

Yehey! Dumadami na tayo! Last week I got my Personal Malden Ochre. Was originally eying the purple malden but the classic look of Ochre won. Happy to use it for my Project monitoring via A to Z tabs and Calendar.
Member ako ng Plannernerds and Philofaxy :)

Grabe ang leather ng Malden. Sulit talaga sa price. As in yung first few days, kayakap ko pa matulog at super labot mas prefer ko sa unan ko. Hahaha!

Joining  ;D

These last few days lagi din ako nagwwatch ng YT videos. Gusto ko sana bumili ng Erin Condren life planner then nakita ko yung Filofax.

Gusto ko ng A5 size na Aqua color sana kaso wala naman :-( So A5 Malden in Purple na lang, kaso out of stock :-( Sana lang hindi masyadong matagal mag ka stock ulet.

Excited na ako mag personalize  ;D

^Maganda si Erin Condren sis. That's why ililipat ko lang siya sa Malden. I don't like the Filofax paper kasi, mabilis mag-bleed ang fountain pen ink sa akin.

Malden Aqua was discontinued na. Sayang, maganda pa naman yun. Maganda din si Antique Pink kaso discontinued na rin. According to some websites, mid-April dadating ang Malden. Some are doing pre-orders na :)
