I’ve wanted a Filofax since I was a kid (I actually got a WWF planner instead because it had wildlife on) and seeing as my memory is getting worse and my brain more scatty- I didn’t know that could be possible – I decided now was the right time to buy a real one. I went with the Filofax Clipbook £18 at 212mm by 187mm it’s big enough to comfortably write in at length but small enough to fit in my satchel.
I added a little charm I got with a piece of jewellery the bloke bought for me.
The only thing that I find annoying about this is that Filofax don’t do page dividers for the Clipbook so I’m using Post It’s instead – hmm.
5 handy To Do List type of pages.
15 plain sheets and 15 quadrille (graph paper) sheets.
Another thing I like about the Clipbook is that it folds back on it’s self so it’s easy to navigate the rings and to hold with one hand neatly. The rings are quite large so that you can add more sheets and it’s easy to undo them by pulling both of the covers away from each other.
As it’s a year at a glance I’m going to record my MS symptoms and moods here so I can easily spot any patterns, mentally, emotionally and physically but this would be a fantastic planner for anything and everything.
This has the days of the week which are more understandable to me than just dates, so I’m going to use this as a general calendar and mini diary. I love that you can write in the dates so it can be for whatever month you choose – no more waisting the first few months of the year! You can also get stickers signalling holidays, travel, inspiration, dinner and love but I thought the designs were rather plain so I’m going to buy my own.
In conclusion, I love my Clipbook and use it every day. I think it looks really stylish, it’s incredibly practical and yes, there are a few things I would have done differently but I’m so glad that I bought it and wish I’d done so sooner!
