A Peek Inside My Filofax

I have always considered myself a lover of stationery. School supply shopping is my favourite (even when I am not in school), picking out a new agenda is one of the highlights of my year, and I can never have enough cute sticky notes or interesting coloured pens. I didn't even realize I was only at the tip of the iceberg, until I discovered the world of the Filofax. I have heard of Filofaxes before and have had other six-ring agendas such as DayRunners and even Lisa Frank planners (I had a black glittery one with colourful aliens on it.) This, however, was years ago, and I hadn't thought much about it since. Then about a month ago, I stumbled upon the hashtag Filofax on Instagram. From that moment on, I became instantly addicted and had to get a Filofax of my own.

Long introduction aside, Preston noticed my constant refresh of #filofax and ordered me one of my birthday (after "subtly" asking me what design, size, and colour I wanted.) So here is a peek inside my Filofax Saffiano Personal Organizer in Aqua (Yeah. I knew what he was up to.)

For more Filofax related pictures (along with pictures of nail art, NYC, & cats. Definitely cats.), you can follow me on Instagram. My username is @kdalve or you can click on the icon on the right side of this blog. I'm loving the Filofax system as a way of organization. It's completely customizable. Decorating the pages makes it fun and something you want to constantly check. Plus, it gives you an excuse to buy copious amounts of sticky notes, stickers, and more.

How do you stay organized?


  1. Love the binder and your stash. It becomes addicting!

    1. Thank you! It so is! I can't leave a store without stickers.... :]

  2. So many people use their phones for organization, but I LOVE using these types of agendas! It's fun and I find the act of writing something down sticks with me longer!! Great post!


    1. I definitely agree! I love having a physical agenda & writing my lists down!

  3. Creativity + Organization = Filofax Love!!! :D

  4. I love this organizer, but can't seem to find it in the pretty aqua :(
