My Filofax Week

My Week

Week Ending 14th June

Yet again I've had a quiet week.  I was expecting to be busy but at the last minute people cancelled appointments and unfortunately so did I.  That said I hope you find My Week interesting.

 The First Half Of My Week

The Second Half Of My Week

Hopefully this week coming will be a little more exciting than last.  Not necessarily busier but certainly a little more interesting.

I hope that you've all had a good week.

Until next time

A Going Away List For My Metropol

A Packing List For Going Away

I don't go away often but when I do I hate wondering if I've forgotten to pack something. To help try and overcame this problem I've created this packing list to keep in my Red Metropol.  

I'm sure my list will always need tweaking depending on the reason why I'm going away. That said I'm sure I will have plenty of extra pages for adding anything extra.

Until next time

Another Planning List

New Dividers

Now that I have my new A5 Finsbury (post definitely coming soon) I need to make some dividers for it. I'm just at the planning stage and have created a planning list to put in my Personal Metropol.  Not only will I be making dividers for my Finsbury but also my Metropol where some of the dividers are getting a little tired.  Here's my list and I hope you find it interesting.

As you can see there is plenty to keep me busy.

Until next time

My Filofax Week

My Week

I can't remember the last time I did My Week but below is my most recent one from my new A5 Finsbury.  Not a fantastically busy week as you can see. One of the highlights was the arrival of my new Finsbury. Hopefully I will be able to do a blog post about my new Finsbury shortly. Here's My Week and I hope you find it interesting.

My Week - Week Ending June 7th

I hope you all had a good week.

Until next time

A New Bag For My Filofax And Other Bits And Pieces

A Second Bag To Lighten My Load

Often when I go out I put way too much 'stuff' in my bag.  To balance the weight I treated myself to a new bag this week.  The bag looks very similar to Cath Kidston bags but came from an inexpensive store called Shoezone.  Here is the bag that I bought.

My New Flowery Bag

Love To Shop Vouchers

Last week I did a 20 minute phone interview with a company I deal with and they gave me shopping vouchers for my time.  Some of the vouchers helped pay for the bag.  The cost was ten pound in vouchers plus £2.99 from me.  I think it's quite a nice bag for the price.

Plenty Of Room Inside For My Red Personal Metropol

I Can Also Fit In My Tablet & It's Case

Space Inside For My Pen/Pencil Roll Which I Bought From Amazon For About £1.35

The Outside Of My Pen/Pencil Roll

I can also fit in a clear plastic pencil case with glue, small scissors, washi tape and a Sharpie pen.

The second bag definitely makes carrying extra bits and pieces around much easier.

Until next time

"Live A Life You Will Remember"

(Nicholas Furlong & Aviccii)

While I was out today I put together a list of goals I would like to achieve. Nothing ground breaking but some list items will probably test my endurance.  Here's the list I created.

My Goals

Keeping it simple I used Paperchase paper suitable for a Personal Filofax. Washi tape and a Sharpie pen for the heading.  I like to create and print off my own lists but I also like to create ones with pen and paper.  

The Filofax I'm using at the moment is my red Personal Metropol. 

I hope you found my post interesting but also hope it's given you ideas for creating your own simple lists.

Until next time

Bullet Journal Pages

Making Pages For My Filofax

Firstly apologies for my blogging absence which yet again is down to health reasons, I never intended my absence to be this long.  I could explain what my problems are but there simply aren't enough hours in an day.

Now that I'm back my new post as you may have guessed is about my bullet journaling.  I've started using bullet journaling to try and simplify my life even more. My bullet journaling covers many areas and is not exclusive to my Filofax.  Hopefully I will be able to show you exactly what I'm doing in these other areas when I put up future posts.

Here is the basic template I've created for possible blog posts bullet lists.  Some of you may remember I did a post in 2014 called Keeping It Simple, I made small lists for some pockets which were made using OneNote. My blog post bullet lists are very similar to those.

Bullet Pages For My A5 Finsbury Filofax

The main page is from a 6 part A5 notebook from Paperchase.  The page edges were trimmed as the two punched holes didn't fit my Filofax.  I then used a single hole punch to put the six holes in the correct places.  I rounded the page corners of my lists with a small punch. The bullet list was then glued to the Paperchase page.  The Washi tape keeps the list firmly attached.

Possible Blog Post Bullet List

This is what my first possible blog post bullet list looks like.  Having the template to work with makes creating bullet lists much simpler.  If I need to tweak the template for other projects it shouldn't be too difficult.

I hope to be posting again soon with more ideas for my Filofax and my bullet journals.  I hope you've found my post interesting.

Until next time
