I have been a very disorganized person practically ever since I moved out of my mothers house.
Up until my children were around 8 years of age, I have been, shall we say, 'messy'.
I don't want to be. I've never liked it. Always wanted to change that about me. Alas, I have never had the dicipline to follow thru. I have begun many times to 'clean up my act', only to give up before it becomes a new habit.
I have kept organizers in the past, even made some myself. However, I've only used them for a couple of months at a time tops. Towards the end of last year I started to look for a new organizer. Then, when on YouTube, I searched 'organizers' and up came lots, and lots of Filofax videos. Before this, I had never heard of Filofaxes, didn't know they existed. There is such a huge community for Filofax lovers out there, I decided to see what the fuss was about.
I purchased this Vintage Pink Personal Malden from a wonderful lady in the UK. It took almost a month from the first contact with her to getting it on my doorstep. So worth the wait. The funny thing is that two days after paying for this Vintage Pink, I saw a black one on eBay for sale for only $45. I had to buy that one too. It arrived in less than a week. I used it for about 2 weeks before this pink one arrived. Now, I am in the process of buying the A5 in Vintage Pink also.
With this new found love, I have decided to start a new series here, where (hopefully) every weekend, I will post a picture of how my week went. With this, I hope to be more consistent with publishing more often, and making myself be more organized with my life. Giving me a bigger reason to keep up with my Filofax.
I had several things to do on Monday, however, I didn't have enough time to finish them.
On Tuesday, I got a call from my boss, telling me I got the job I had applied for. So, I got promoted.
Wednesday was the first day of my new resposobilities within this company, and my feet were aching! I was in so much pain I decided to not do anything else that day. This was also the day I received this lovely Filofax in the post. A happy surprise after a long day.
Thursday I felt pretty good in the morning, finished cleaning my room and the bathroom. All before 6AM. I was on a roll! Both my brother and sister came for a visit and played Loteria (a Mexican Bingo).
Friday was the livingroom's turn and well, let's just say TGIwasF!
I was so tired, I decided to wake up really late on the weekends.
Though it was a difficult week for me, I've also have to say, it has been a very productive week. That makes me happy.
I will be posting a video of my Filofax setup in a few days so come back to check it out if you wish.
