The Latest Addition to my Filofax Family

For those of you who have seen my Instagram will know that I finally caved and ordered the Green Original I mentioned that I wanted in this post! I didn't end up getting it engraved as I found it for a much cheaper price on Amazon and I had a £10 gift card for there from completing surveys so I managed to get this beauty delivered for a mere £34.98! I wonder if I sent it to Filofax at some point in the future I could get it engraved, or perhaps a local leather shop could do the same for me? Has anybody ever done this?

Well here it is, my original still in its 'box', I must admit I do miss the old Filofax boxes and whilst I admit that you can see what is in the Filofax in store without damaging it, I can't help but feel that this looks a little cheap when you've spent so much on the organiser in the first place.

I am currently still in the process of 'moving in' to the organiser as I am going to use my original as my handbag organiser instead of the Pocket Chameleon I had been using as I found there isn't enough space for me to write what I want to on the pages and so the process is taking a little longer than usual as I have to physically copy things out but so far I am really happy with the progress and I will do a more detailed blog post in the near future (perhaps accompanied by a video!) I haven't found the closing to be too restrictive yet which is a relief as I had heard several people mention this fault with the Original but he (I've decided its definitely a he!) is far from full yet so it will be interesting to see if I can fit everything that I want to in there. 

Right now I am going to go and carry on playing with my new organiser (much to my housemates amusement I am sure!) so I shall leave it at that, thank you for reading! :)


  1. I am quite satisfied with the 2 planners that I own, but I must admit that every time I open the Philofaxy blog and see that green Original, my heart skips a couple of beats and I run down my old useless list of ways to justify buying it. It IS beautiful! I hope you enjoy it and I cant wait to see some set-up photos...

    1. I myself also longed after the original for several months despite owning plenty of organisers and not actually having a 'need' for it. I have just posted my initial set up on my blog, hope you enjoy it! :)

  2. I do agree it's rather silly not to offer a truly protective covering for Filofax organisers; even the cardboard slip-sleeve is better than the new plastic sheets!
