One of the things I love about my Filofax is that it is re-useable. I have had this raspberry Filofax from Pen Heaven for years now and I love that I get to use it again and again… this year I have even added some accessories to it. I like having a space to doodle, write my reminders and it is handy too as it fits in my handbag. I sit in a coffee shop each week, whilst Isla is at Gymfinity and I doodle away.
Adding the right pens
This Parker Jotter Ballpoint pen is the exact pink and matches my raspberry Filofax. So it was only right I got this pent to match. Pen Heaven currently have this on sale too for £4.99. It is the perfect fit for the pen loops and the clip hooks over the pen loop for added security. It is a lightweight pen and very comfortable for making notes.
Adding an extra pen loop
This pen loop from Leuchtturm1917 is perfect for the Filofax. I can now carry around 3 pens securely, which is great for when I travel with it. It comes in an array of colours so you can match your own journal. It simply sticks onto the Filofax and has been a secure fix since. I use it to carry an extra colour around with me as I like to have different coloured notes.
Getting the right inserts
Every year you can renew your Filofax diary inserts. Or add extra plain paper, dividers and many other styles of inserts. I love the Contacts inserts too, I can write all the addresses I need to know and if people move you can just throw the page away and start again. I have gone through so many contact address books in the past and had to throw them away as so many people moved.
What I love most about these products is that it has made me feel like the Filofax is new… fresh! I do not have to buy a new case and I can recycle the old papers. It is a re-useable journal and perfect for those who are conscious about their footprint on the planet. Do you use a Filofax? I would love to know what you think of yours and how you accessorise it each year. Do you get different inserts each year? Let me know in the comments below. What are you favourite stationery items?

My wife will surely appreciate this one. She wants everything to be documented and loves personalised items like this!

I love a filofax, feels so much more personal than an online organiser/phone organiser
