Unboxing of My Filofax A5 Finsbury in raspberry!


YES! She's finally here! My beautiful Finsbury in Raspberry! 



 Of Course it comes in a beautiful Filofax box for storage. I LOVE filofax boxes!
 I am SO EXCITED!
 And here she is. My first impression of course was the color. It's Beautiful! There is no filter to this picture the color is exactly the same. 
 I love how it has the little I.D. Window so i can put a picture of my baby in it. I don't use my filofax for my wallet but I can see how it is very useful for one to use.
 I like instead of the normal week on two pages it came with the vertical lined week on two pages. 
 Along with the normal a-z dividers (which I never use), It also comes with 5 blank dividers! Ohh the possibilities! 

 To do list. For all your to dos :)
 Beautiful Filofax Note paper!
 Note pad on the back. 
 Note pad pocket. 
 My new BFF! 

 I have her all set up and ready to go! 

I have been using her for a few weeks now and I absolutely adore her, but I must be honest. She is just too dang BIG to carry around. I love how wide the pages are and how much I can write in them but when it comes to portability I just can't seem to get it down. It comes to the point where I go to the mall or the store and I actually take it out of my purse so I don't have to lug it around with me. 

But don't you worry! There is a light at the end of the tunnel!

I've always wanted to use a home binder for my cleaning schedules, organizing, and cleaning and food recipes. So I really thing that is how i'm going to use it. And if i ever do get a big girl job you better believe it will be in my briefcase! 

Until next time!

How do you use your a5? Is it easy for you to carry around? I'm always open to suggestions and ideas!

  1. I tried an A5 binder as my Filofax but it was just too big. I'm back in personal, and happy to stay there. I use an A5 for work, though.

  2. Have you considered using the A-Z (or some of them) to put things other than addresses in ABC. Recipes, menus, cleaning schedules?

  6. I don't use an A5 now that I don't work outside the home daily, but am hanging on to my binder in case I decide to do a household notebook.
