The moment has arrived! I have officially selected my planner for the year 2021. After much consideration, I have decided to go with the classic, luxurious and practical – Filofax A5 organizer.
The style I selected is called the Finsbury and I went with the vivid Forest Green colour. The planner is a high quality genuine leather in a pebbled texture. I have owned a Filofax organizer in the past, and I can vouch for the quality of this leather. It is durable, top notch and retains it’s colour extremely well. I totally get why people collect these planners!
There are so many planners out there, every year I find myself craving change. This past year I have been using an Erin Condren Life Planner in the Horizontal layout. This planner is great as it is bright, colourful, offers structure and is at a decent price point. Although I LOVE my Erin Condren (and Erin Condren planners of years past)- I felt myself wanting something a bit more polished and also flexible in use.
Enter Filofax! There are a few things I absolutely love about Filofax organizers – their elegant style, the flexibility of use and their truly luxury, high quality materials. Filofax offers so much room to change and grow through their binder rings. You can design your planner exactly how you want to fit your changing needs – something I felt was lacking for my needs in a static planner (ie, Erin Condren). I have not yet set up the “sections” of my Filofax – I am saving that as a Christmas Vacation activity! I look forward to getting into this planner and seeing how it evolves with me as 2021 unfolds.
