Insert Inventory!

The other day, I decided I was going to buy a 'value pack' of paper for my Filofax so I could fill up my new personal Chameleon and start using it more. Not quite sure what for yet, but that's another post I guess!!! (Hope Hubby didn't just read that...I'll be on the naughty step again...) :-/

After hunting high and low, I couldn't seem to find one of the value packs of mixed coloured plain and ruled paper. I didn't want to pay postage by buying online so I decided to go through all my various inserts and sort out exactly what I had before buying any more.

Well!!! Little did I know I had so much. The following pics are my collection of various personal inserts plus some diaries, although I have more diaries upstairs and a rather large collection of mini and pocket inserts there too!

I use a wooden box to store my stationery/diary/Filofax items downstairs, although I do have a drawer upstairs that contains diaries, Filofaxes and different-sized inserts that are not in use (ie: my minis and pockets). My personals, compacts and slimlines as well as pens, stickers and label maker are all in my wooden stationery box.

So I sorted out all my inserts, put them all into categories and then labelled up an envelope for each category.

I now realise that I don't need to buy any more paper for quite a while! All my Filofaxes are empty now (apart from my main personal).  This contains my weekly and daily 2012 diaries from January to present and my DPP diary for the rest of the year, except for the next week which stays in my slimline that I carry with me all the time.

It's amazing how many inserts you can acquire without realising it!  But I guess that's what happens when you have an addiction to buying Filofaxes...

  1. Too organised! Serious organisation kudos to you!
    But now you know what you have, do you have what you need?

  2. Thank you! Yes I think I have what I need. But there's always room for more!!! ;-)

    I've decided I'm going to get some little expansion folders to put them in now; stealing an idea from this post:


    Thank you Storage Studio!

  3. Wow.. that's a lot of inserts!
    I love how you keep them so organized together. I just chuck them all into a cupboard...

  4. Hi wandrrlust - yes a lot of inserts but I also have loads of pocket ones and some mini ones upstairs too! My diaries aren't even in the pictures either...! It's a waste really; I've got a lot of them from buying new binders when I only actually want the binder and not the contents. A lot of them will get used eventually I'm sure.

    Thanks for reading!
