My Filofax Setup

I’ve been pretty open about the changes that have happened in my life recently, so it should come as no surprise that my Filofax has made some changes, too. My current Filofax setup is a bit different now and I wanted to share it with you.

Vision Board

This is my vision board and it’s the first thing I see when I open my Filofax. I keep it in a transparent top loading envelope so that it’s protected. I can also change it out should my vision change through the year.

Sections

This may be a bit difficult to see, but these are the sections in my Filofax. I ordered the dividers from Plannerfancy on Etsy and I love them! I used my label maker to create the labels for each section.

Schedule

This section is where I keep my day on one page inserts. I ordered the business inserts from Habercrafts on eBay. This is my second year using them and I love them!

Daily Page

This is what the business day per page inserts look like. I love how there are different sections on the page. My tasks are even more organized than ever and I always feel like I get so much more done! I also color code my tasks so I know at-a-glance what needs to be done and for whom. At the top of the page, there’s a TODAY section. This is what I use for our meal planning and paying bills. Today, for example, I need to pay my Walmart charge account and spaghetti is for dinner.

Daily Schedule Insert

After the daily pages, I have my daily schedule insert. I created this one and laminated it so I can re-use it every day. These are the things I have to do every Monday through Friday and I didn’t want to take up space on my daily pages. I use a fine tip dry erase marker to check off the ones I’ve done.

Cleaning Schedule

On the back of my daily schedule is my cleaning schedule. This schedule makes keeping up with the housework so easy and I don’t have to do it all on the weekend. I actually have more family time on the weekends now and that’s so important to me. After this is a photo holder I bought a very long time ago that I can’t find anywhere these days. It was made for Day Runner. After that is a business card holder page that I keep appointment cards and stamps in.

Flags

This is another business card page that I use for page flags and labels. Behind that is some damask velum paper that I found at Michaels, I think. It’s my favorite pattern so it’s only natural to find it in my Filofax. 🙂

DIY Folder

I bought a pack of file folders from Staples a while back. I watched Alexis’ video on YouTube about making a folder for an A5 Filofax. And, this is the end result.

Monthly

This is my monthly section where I keep my month on two pages inserts. This comes in handy when I’m making appointments because I can see the entire month at once.

Monthly Calendar

I ordered these inserts from Filofax USA and started using them this month. So far, it’s working out great; I love seeing the whole month at once!

Self Love

I found this gem on Pinterest and had to include it in my Filofax setup. It reminds me daily of how I need to treat myself. Unfortunately, I no longer have this pinned to any of my boards so I can’t link to it. Let me know if you want to download this image and I’ll see what I can do.

Blog

This is my blog section. It helps me keep my blog ideas organized and it gives me a place to write down any ideas I think of.

Blog Topics

This is the insert I created to keep track of my blog posts. I write down a potential title and the check boxes indicate if the post has been written, edited, images, and scheduled. Behind this page is blank note paper so I can jot down any random thoughts or ideas that may turn into blog posts.

Money

This is my money section where I keep track of our finances. Although it can be stressful, it’s my favorite section.

Expenses

This is the page where I have all of our bills listed with the due dates and amounts. It’s a quick glance sort of thing so I know what’s due on what day and how much it is.

Monthly Bill Tracker

This is my monthly bill tracker so I can check off the bills we pay each month. Our bills are also on this page with due dates and amounts. I left room for 2 added bills should the need arise. This insert is available for free download here.

Credit Inserts

Also in this section are ledger-type inserts I created to keep track of the balances we have on our credit and charge cards. Each time we make a purchase or a payment, I write it down and update the balance; just like balancing your checkbook.

Flag Marker

After the money section is this beauty. I love having it within reach at all times just in case I need to mark something for later or jot something down. It’s available on Amazon and Filofax USA.

Books to Read

I’m an avid reader, or I try to be, and I often come across titles I want to read. Instead of trying to remember them all, I created this insert to write them down. While I was creating it, I added the titles I already had written down so it was nice and neat. 😉

Notes

This is my notes section and it contains colored lined paper. Some of the paper came with the Filofax and other paper came from KiddyQualia on Etsy.

Contacts

The last section is my contacts. This is self-explanatory, but, just in case, it’s where I keep all of my names, addresses, and phone numbers. 😉

Storage Pouch

This is an awesome storage pouch I found at Staples. It already had holes punched in it but they didn’t line up with my Filofax rings. So, I re-punched it. I keep stickers, labels, and flags in here so they’re all in one place. It closes with velcro and it’s not bulky so it doesn’t over stuff my Filofax.

Shew – that may seem like a lot but it’s really not. If you’re wondering why I don’t have a health section anymore, it’s because I keep everything in the Lose It! app. I found that logging in Lose It! and writing it down was too much and I was forgetting one or the other. It just wasn’t working so I took it out. Oh, if you’re also wondering what pen I use, I use a Pilot Hi-tec-c Coleto 5 Color Multi Pen Body Component – Clear Pink Body & Multi Pen Ink Cartridge – 0.3 Mm – 10 Color starter set.

Want to download my inserts? Let me know in the comments and I’ll make them available!
