This was fun and has given me lots more things to add to my to do lists (although I think I need to concentrate on my 101 in 1001 first, before trying to fit any more onto my plate).
After reading Laura's list of 105 Uses for a Filofax over on her blog (and before anyone gets clever, no, frisbee is not on there!!!), I thought it was about time that I actually list the plans that I have for my filofaxes, and start to make it happen.
I already had some plans, but reading the list inspired me to plan a few more...
Daily Planner (work & personal, brown A5 Holborn Zip) I posted about this new set up here last weekend.
Craft Fax (A5 Domino, not sure which colour yet)
- knitting info
- fonts directory
- sticker storage (or I may set up a separate Filofax for that)
- washi tape samples
Photo Album of my boys (probably in an A5 Domino) - this will be particularly for photos of them when they were still babies, although I need to try to get some baby photos of my oldest boy from other people as I can't find mine, and all my copies were on my laptop which got left on the train, never to be seen again.
Events Planner (A5 vintage pink Finchley)
- Christmas planning (sheets from Dodo book of Christmas)
- birthdays (including space to put cards/postcards ready to use)
- holidays and travel plans
- names and addresses (these already live in this binder, and I'm most likely to use
them when I am doing cards, rarely any other time)
Face-O-Fax (personal, possibly teal Ava as it's a bit wider) - like an address book, but with photos and information about the person.
Doodle-Fax - obviously I will need to buy a Doodle to fulfil this one, it would be wrong not to :o)
Gratitude Journal (personal aqua Finsbury) - I have started this a number of times, but never manage to keep it up for more than a week.
Greetings Cards Storage (A5 Chameleon, not sure which colour) - to keep special cards that we have received.
German Language (personal navy Portland?)
- vocabulary by type
- verbs and the conjugation of
- tenses and sentence structure differences
Letter Writing (A5 purple Malden or mustard Finchley)
- paper and envelopes
- stamps and mailing stickers
- pen pal info (name, address, birthday, personal info)
- dates written/received
Little Book of Calm (personal pink Winchester)
- 10 minute things to do to help feel calm
- sources of calm
- calming foods
- calming drinks (I often find a large Bailey's does the trick, but I'm not sure that counts...)
- calm thoughts and quotes
Journal Fax (A5 jade Finchley)
General photo albums - personal Dominos
Pin-O-Fax (A5 purple Malden or mustard Finchley), a bit like Pinterest, with categories for:
- mood boards
Religion Filo (not sure which) - I want to learn about lots of different religions (not in huge detail, just enough to understand their main principles and beliefs) and would like to dedicate a filofax to this.
Emergency Grab Fax ( A4 brown Metropol)
- birth certificates
- everything super important (I have a list somewhere of all the things I need to include)
- especially radiation tablets
Filofax of Filofaxes (pocket ochre Malden, unless I decide to include photos, then I will go to the personal size) - this will contain a page for each of the Filofaxes that I have bought with all relevant information about each one.
Bills to Pay and Filing (A5 ochre Malden - just because it's so fat)
School Letters and Filing (A5 black Lyndhurst Zip)
Recipe Filo - I'm not too sure about this one as I bought a Moleskine recipe notebook a while ago, and so should give this a try, but we'll see...
Blog Posts (A5 Domino - although I may be better off with an A4 ring binder)
Wallet - this is my black mini Chameleon, and although I occasionally move out, it's never for very long.
Wow - so potentially I could have 22 in use (well more I guess, because there will be more than one photo album).
I am quite excited now :o)
