I’ve really got back into Filofax organisers this year – despite the fact my main planner is an Erin Condren Life Planner.
I did sell quite a few on Facebook or Philofaxy, I’ve yet to try selling on eBay. But it’s safe to say my collection has actually increased rather than decreased.
I prefer the A5s and, since portability isn’t a concern for me, A5s definitely make up the majority of my collection. Since I don’t see myself buying any more A5s (unless it’s a caramel Finchley) I thought I’d share my A5 collection. These don’t include my Finchleys which will be the subject of a later post.As you can see, I’m a big fan of The Original.
From L to R I’ve Fluoro Orange, Fluoro Pink, Black, Fuchsia, Brown, Pillar Box Red, Nude, Navy, Dark Aqua, Yellow, Green and Purple. I think the only ones I don’t have are the new metallic colours and the monochrome. I love having a huge choice of colours to suit my mood.
Next to those are my Finsburys
I have the electric blue, grey, raspberry, black and I think the tangerine. I understand there’s also an orange which is a much deeper shade. Amazon indicates I have an aqua Finsbury due this month but I’m not holding my breath for that.
And finally rounding off my A5s I have purple and aqua Maldens and a brown Hamilton. I used to have a vintage pink and ochre Malden, but I’m not a big fan of the Malden so I sold them knowing others would love them more than I ever could. The Hamilton is one of my oldest Filos and the first one I bought when I had a proper job.
Okay so technically these aren’t all my A5s. I have some Dominos and Paperchase organisers which I use for archival and storage purposes. I also have a Malibu Daytimer from when I was playing around with inserts.
The tangerine Finsbury and fuchsia Original are currently in use but I do change colours often. The beauty of swapping to a binder from the same range is I don’t have to worry about the internal pockets and detail or contents not fitting in.
My non-A5s will also be a future post.
