Yes, it's true. Until about 3 months ago I had never heard of a Filofax. I also had no idea how it would impact my life. I came across them when I was in one of my organizing moods and was looking on YouTube for inspiration. I kept bumping into Filofax decorating videos. I was sold 5 minutes into the first video (by My_Planner). The idea that this planner (or any other) could actually corral all of my favorite things in one place was amazing!

Once I had decided on the right Filofax for me I had to wait until one became available. In the meantime, I had bought a very cute notebook as a substitute until I got the real thing.
Then it arrived. A personal Malden, in all of its purple glory...so soft, so beautiful...but smaller than I am used to. At first I thought it might be too small and I would miss using my notebook, but I adapted and made it work for me. I copied the cover of the notebook and use it as a dashboard right in the front. So after several trips to Target, Staples and Michaels, and experimenting with many different inserts, I have a set up that I am very happy with!
This simple discovery...filofaxing....gave me a renewed sense of excitement and reminded me of all of the passions that I had been neglecting for a long time. I have more energy now than I know what to do with and the creative juices are flowing. I was at the right place at the right time!
