Year End Stock Check - A Work in Progress

I am a bit lax when it comes to organisation, hence I have not yet got my set up for 2012 planned yet. I have been meaning to do this for a while now, and sort out my collection of filos to see which ones I want to use for what...

Getting my two new beauties for Christmas has given me the prod that was needed, and so on Boxing Day I started to go through all the FFs and take out all the inserts to see exactly what I have. I have been saying for some time that I need to get myself some more inserts so that I can have a box of them to raid whenever I feel the need for new bits and pieces in my FFs (and just to look at occasionally as just seeing a box of various sized and coloured papers would make me smile).

Oh my word, having taken out the inserts from my personals, pockets & minis, I now see that I actually already have quite a lot of stuff - admittedly quite a lot of it is made up of 2011 and 2012 diaries, but that is fine, I am sure I will find a use (or a new home) for most of them. I still need to package the subject indexes as I couldn't even think what they were called, and then have to pull the inserts from the A5s, A4s and the slimline, but as there are fewer of these they won't take as long.

Here are a few pics of the work in progress last night.

OK - a few more than I realised

The Ben 10 jigsaws are not mine :o)

Maybe I need to get a bigger table...
And then I labelled some and packed it all away ready to carry on today after I have taken the boys into town and worn them out.



  1. Just an idea, but some of those spare 2012 diaries could work as standalone diaries if you use this trick from Vanjilla's blog: http://vanjilla.blogspot.com/2011/12/filofax-storage-vs-sleeping-beauties.html?showComment=1324708706362#c8815527341157419645

    How about one for each boy - either for them to keep or for you to keep school term and event details in? Or, thinking back to my own school days, what about using them as homework diaries?

  2. Wow!! That is a big table of filofax inserts!!! lol


  3. @ Ray - now that is a cunning plan. If I can think of people to give them to then I could be onto a winner :o)

    @ Tracy - thankfully I had the extension leaves in for Christmas, or there would have been no hope. lol

    I really must start on the other sizes so that I can get it all finished and write out a full inventory of what I have - it is so exciting!!!

  4. Love the pictures! Nearly as bad as me... I have to do this sort of thing before I have a buying spree in Neal Street to make sure I don't go buying stuff I have got already... learned that lesson last year... I really should keep a 'stock list' in my Filo!


  5. Just a few more A5 inserts to bind and then I can write my list to see what I have got...
