filofax photo challenge | #planneraddictspotd

I kinda sorta have a crush on the bright yellow, sunshiney color of my Filofax Finsury and I love that I can use my cardstock and washi tape and vellum to create pages that make organization even more fun. Having a daily plan, in written form, has been such a help to our family. I reference my planner several times a day and even carry with me in my purse as I run errands, go to the Post Office and pick up the girls from school.

Another month, another daily photo challenge featuring my Filofax Finsbury planner. Take a peek and see what you think about my little ray of sunshine!

1 | Cover

Filofax Finsbury | iloveitallwithmonikawright.com
Typically, I would go with an understated, classic brown for a planner. But, when I saw the yellow Filofax Finsbury, I just had to have it. Originally, I purchased the Pocket size for 60% off and needed more room...hence the Personal size and it is perfect. 


2 | Where I Plan

On this day in October, it was still nice enough to sit on the much porch after picking up the girls from school. Oreo's and milk and a little planning, too!

3 | Orange

Using a free download I designed, I added my Halloween countdown calendar to the front and fancied it up with a bit of washi tape.

4 | Dividers

Made my own top tab dividers with clearance priced plastic side dividers and trimmed to size. The yellow washi tape hides that the dividers are pink.

5 | Planner Case

I don't use a planner case. At home she's on my desk. On the go she's in my purse.

6 | Around Town

We were hoping to finish up the house painting and had plans to be "around home" all day.

7 | DIY

How I keep track of my deal site coupon codes. For Filofax Personal size, trim your paper to 6.75" tall and 7" wide. From the left edge, where you would punch your holes, score and fold at 3.75". You should now have a flap to fold over and hide all the messy notes. A permanent Sharpie marker will write,  without smudging, on washi tape.

8 | Festive

Made a divider out of Christmas cardstock to hide our plans for our Advent Calendar. I used graph paper and outlined a square before the activity so I could fill in the date in pencil as I decide which day has which activity or holiday event.

9 | Dashboard

I don't like to see sticky notes when I open my planner, so this is the third page back. Made from the leftover plastic that I made my Dividers with on Day 4.

10 | Menu Planning

A free download I designed so that I could finally get on board with a meal plan. Prints on one page, fold in the middle and punch holes.

11 | Bookmark

Just a simple paper clip to hold together my past weeks and point me in the right direction.

12 | Cleaning Schedule

No schedule here, just do it as it needs it.

13 | Holiday Planning

Making a list of things to document for our December Daily album.

14 | In My Bag

In town running errands with my two favorites...Coach and Filofax. It was key for me that the Personal size fit into even my smallest purse.

15 | Planner Collection

Small, but mighty. The Pocket size I initially purchased sits patiently next to her big sister.

16 | Checklist

Getting t done and checking it off my to do list today. I draw circles next to the task and when it's complete color it in. If it's in progress, I draw only half the circle in and move it forward to another day.

17 | Spooky

Googly eyes that were left over from our Halloween goody bag project.

18 | Creative

Lucky me, it's my job to be creative every day!

19 | With My Drink

20 | Pretty in Pink

My dividers are pink, a DIY project, but I covered them with yellow washi tape to coordinate with my Finsbury better.

21 | Pen Loop

Although I use a pen to write my lists, I keep a pencil in the pen loop and use it most often.

Filofax Finsbury | iloveitallwithmonikawright.com

22 | Washi in Use

Made a bottom tab divider today for my 2014 calendars and it was lonely without a little washi, this time blue.

23 | In Your Car

Car pick-up lines and planners just seem to go hand-in-hand. A few minutes here and a few minutes there do make a difference.

Filofax Finsbury | iloveitallwithmonikawright.com

24 | Where It Lives

On my nightstand. In my purse. In the car. Next to me while I create and work.

Filofax Finsbury | iloveitallwithmonikawright.com

25 | Quote

...and a reminder for me to see. It's a free printable and it's sized for Personal, Pocket and also as a 4x6 to display in a frame if you wish.

26 | Stickers

I don't use stickers in my Filofax, but a chevron heart on my third baby's upcoming birthday is perfect.

27 | Birthday

Today is my Dad's birthday.

28 | Supplies

Using the business card sleeve for on-the--road Post-It note supplies.

29 | Polka Dots

I ripped out my registration page by mistake, so I reinforced it with some polka dot washi tape, of course.

30 | Favorite Pen

Love it because it writes super fine. Love it because it has a thin barrel. Love it because it doesn't bleed through the page. And it's erasable. Good thing I accidentally ordered a box instead of just one, Gordon and the girls love it, too. Now if it just had a clip.

31 | Halloween Page

Happy Boo to You!

  3. Ah! So many fantastic ideas here! I just started using a paper organizer again (I have a DayMInder from 2002) and I'm getting it ready for 2014. Thanks for sharing.
