Is this what they call Planner Fail?


Here we are again, pondering what am I going to do next...over the last few weeks I have suffered horrible headaches, which lead me to spend most days in bed avoiding any light.

Over the last few weeks I haven't been doing much, because of this and I feel like my filofax is a little negleted because of it. However, as much as I love my A5 finsbury, I feel like I am not using it in the way I had designed the set up simply because I do actually need that many tabs or that much space.

I thought I could slim it down, but I'm still finding it too bulky to carry around each day, lugging folders and textbooks make it hard enough then lugging an a5 on top of that isn't fun.

I have started using my black slimline as a 'to do' list keeper, I have added in my monthly pages I had in my metropol but I feel a bit strange not having an actual week in there.

As much as I love my new filofax family members I feel like they aren't working well enough for my liking.

I think I may have to go back to my metropol for a while, I really do love that blue colour!

Hmm, I think I will move back into my metropol for now and see how we go with that.

Week 11

The weeks seem to go so quickly!

I haven't used my Filofax all that much this week, but I have been playing around with my slimline as a place to keep my to do lists. So much easier to carry!

As you can see by the photos it was my birthday on Thursday, we headed into Sydney on Saturday for lunch and clubbing in the evening. Sadly it was also the same weekend the Sydney Filofax meet up was :( I hope everyone who attended had a great time, I will be at the next one!

I think I will do review of my birthday weekend, we encountered some great service, at the hotel, nightclub and bar :)

I also thought I would thrown in a photo of our at home family celebrations, I recently got my hair done and I love it so much I thought I would add a pic here :)

Week 10!

We are at week 10 already, my gosh time flies!

This is my first proper week in my a5. I think I have settled in quite well. I am starting to notice everyones pain about lugging and a5 with sorting a new systen to try and combat that issue.

I found a use for my Martha Stewart bubbles! I had 2 quizes due I am using a different colour for each subject :) (and I was bored and turned them into ballons)

I had a few sticker sets arrive from my ebay purchasing frenzy. Pics below.

Hope everyones week was as fabulous as I felt mine was :)

Week 9!
If you have been following me, you can see I have upsized to an A5!

My a5 arrived mid week so I re wrote my tasks in so I could have a full week.
I have discovered that if you cut the bottom of the personal pages they fit in an a5 perfect size to create a to do list :)

A very pink week to go with my pink diary. At the moment I am loving pink things.

A few pics below, I still can't find my camera so the quality isnt the greatest. I'm sure no one actually reads my dribble so I guess it doesnt really matter :)

Two NEW filofaxes!!!!


This week I have spent a fair amount online shopping. I scored myself a few bargins, 2 new filofaxs' and a few sticker sets which I might post about later on.

So do you want to meet the new family members?

Welcome miss A5 Finsbury in antique rose :)

She is so pretty, I purchased her for a steal online at the organiser shop. I have wanted one for a long long long time, but with a price tag of $216.00 I couldn't justify the purchase. I scored her for $142.00 - with free shipping, and from an Australian Retailer!

A tiny bit upset that she didn't come with the colunm pages that everyone seems to hate, but I love! However, I am loving the week on two pages in the a5 format, there is just so much room to write! I might stick with it.

The next new family member, isn't new, she is an ebay find but in top condition...please welcome the lovely Aldelphi in black Slimline!

another impulse buy, not 100% sure what I will be using this for as I am very happy with my a5, and will be retring my metropol to be my goals, projects and password binder.

I may find use for this one when it comes to summer school, at the moment I have way to much on my plate (hence to upsize)

Here are some pics!

Sorry for the terrible quality pictures, I was using my ipod as I can't find me camera, my room looks like world war three!

Has anyone got some ideas of how I could use my slimline binder?
How many binders do you have running in one go?

Antique Rose set up will be happening over the weekend, stay tunned for an update :)
