2014 Filofax Organization

Whenever a new year rolls around, it is like a fresh start for me. Naturally, planning and organizing the upcoming year’s calendar, schedules and to do lists is important so that I can stay on top of things and start achieving my goals.

How you plan and organize your life is a very personal thing. It needs to be tailored to suit your lifestyle, and be a system that you can keep up with. Last year I tried using an electronic calendar, which ended up being a complete disaster for me. I was missing appointments, my days lacked structure and I wasn’t getting things done. After giving the electronic calendar a fair shot, I knew that I had to go back to the old fashion pencil and paper calendar! I dusted off my trusty Filofax A5 Malden and spent a lot of time revamping my Filofax to come up with the best system for me. This system has been working extremely well and I am excited to share it with you!

Now let's get into the meat of the planner! I made my own dividers with scrapbook card stock cut to the A5 size, got them laminated at Staples and punched holes. It was inexpensive and adds a personal touch to my Filofax.

The first tab is "Personal Information" which includes detailed personal information, general facts, a password log, goals and a weight tracker sheet.

The next section is dedicated to Project Life. This section helps me keep track of my journaling and which pictures I want to use each week.

The list section is next, and I LOVE lists! I have a Master To Do List, a Home To Do List, my 100 Things to do in 2014 List from Leonie Dawson and a Books to Read List.

Now for the actual calendar and planning sections!!
I purchased most of the calendar inserts from the Filofax website, however as of now most of them are out of stock. As for the other inserts, I found free Filofax printables on Pinterest! Check out my Filofax Pinterest board to see them.

The first divider is the yearly view. I purchased the vertical yearly planner from the Filofax website.

Next tab is the month per page view.
Month Per Page

Next up is the day per page view. I use this section the most. This year I ordered the day per page business style. I really like it because the second column is divided into sections, which I find helpful. I used Avery labels to divide each month.

I am also using my Filofax as my blog planner. I like having everything in one place. The next section is labeled Audrey's Wife Life. It includes my blogging goals, blog to do list, post ideas and a few other inserts to keep track of my blog.

Another section of my blog planner is dedicated to my blog posting calendar. I am using the week per page view from Filofax.

The final section of my blog planner is social media. This section includes anything to do with Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram and Google+.

Finally, the last section of my Filofax is travel. I don't have anything in this section other than a world map because I am not planning any trips at the moment. However, as vacations approach this section will be very helpful.

There you have it! A complete overview of my Filofax and it's current set up! I hope you found this helpful. If you would like a more detailed view of my Filofax, please take a look at my YouTube video. While you are over there, subscribe to my channel for more exciting videos!




As I mentioned, organizing your calendar, schedule and lists is a very personal thing. Everyone has different needs. I like to be very detailed, while others may just need to jot down a few notes in a monthly calendar. The trick to staying on top of life is to find a system that works for you! 

How are you staying organized this year?


*In order to print the inserts to fit the A5 size, I printed more than one page per page and set it to landscape. I still had to trim them down to the exact size.*

  1. You have given me some wonderful ideas for my Filofax. I especially like your daily and weekly routine card and created something similar. What a difference it has made! I have accomplished more in the last two weeks that I've been using it! Also, you look beautiful in your profile pic here!

      chém gió
      trung tâm ngoại ngữbộ tuôn ra, phóng tới nạp giới. Trong nạp giới lưu lại đích linh hồn lực lượng cũng không nhiều, cũng không có đến tiếp sau chi lực ủng hộ! Bởi vậy, giằng co một lát, Tiêu Viêm thuận lợi phá vỡ, nhân tiện ký thác linh hồn lạc ấn của mình lên chiếc nhẫn.

      Linh hồn lực lượng dũng mãnh vào, dò xét khởi bên trong đích vật phẩm ra. Ước chừng đã qua nửa phút, Tiêu Viêm đích trên mặt lộ ra vẻ vui mừng. Trong tay Tiêu Viêm lúc này đang cầm đan phương Phục Linh Đan.

      Tiêu Huyền tổ tông, ta nhất định sẽ phục sinh người!

      Tiêu Viêm đem quyển trục thu vào trong nạp giới, chuẩn bị rời đi thì một cỗ khí thế đáng sợ lạ thường hàng lâm tại cách đó không xa.

      "Không xong, vừa mới đánh chết Tiêu Ứng xong thì tên Hắc Thành kia đã cách ta không tới vạn dặm, hiện tại đã cách nơi này không đến trăm dặm rồi! Tứ tinh Đấu Đế, chính mình thế không đối phó được ah!"

  5. can you fit all 365 pages and all your other tabs in your a5 malden? i just received mine and am having a hard time adjusting to the lack of space. my planner that i just moved out of was 2 pages per day. i loved the set up and space, but it was just too heavy and bulky to lug around.
