I have a love/meh relationship with Filofax at the moment. A few weeks into February and I moved out of my Filofax and into Erin Condren Life Planners and Notebooks.
And it seems foolish to have loads of Filofax sitting in my cupboards unloved when they could be put to good use somewhere else, so I decided this year I would pare down my collection substantially.
Now, it occurs to me that I’ve never sold anything second-hand before (online or otherwise) so I never worried about what the process entailed. I thought the hardest part would be to decide which organisers I wanted to sell but truthfully, for the most part, that was quite easy.
I am not a big fan of personal size organisers and I think I’ll use them even less now I’ve got my iphone and Midori for my handbag. Still I’m holding onto a couple of Finchleys and a Malden just in case.
I’m still undecided about some of my pricier Filofax, namely the Luxe and Deco
but I really can’t see myself using these on a practical level so I probably need to make the break.
The hardest part for me is working out where to sell them and how much for.
My first thought was obviously on Philofaxy Adspot. But it seems better geared for people who know how much they want and I can’t work out the best selling price, specially where the Filo is discontinued.
There are various Facebook groups which allow sales but I’m too new to them to feel confident they’re the safest choice and I don’t think they have the widest reach.
A blog sale is out because I don’t get enough traffic to make it worth the effort.
And I think that leaves me with ebay.
I don’t know, it all seems like such a lot of hassle and I’m in no desperate need to sell. Perhaps I’ll just leave it for a while.
