Hey guys! If you’ve seen any of my recent planner posts, you know I’ve been using my Erin Condren Life Planner in conjunction with my A5 size Aqua Saffiano
Filofax. I haven’t shown a tour yet of this planner because it has been a little bit of a process getting it all setup just how I wanted. However, as with all of my planners, I’m sure this one will change over time so I’ll try and do occasional updates on how I’m using it! So, here’s my current Filofax organization…
I have been doing a sort of ocean theme with both of my planners. I have the sea cover from Erin Condren, and I LOVE the color of this Aqua Filofax.
Here are the sections I have my binder currently- budgeting, weight loss, meals, goals, etsy, and blog. I’m not keeping a ton of stuff in this planner, just the essentials. I’m using my Erin Condren to keep track of my daily schedule and this binder as more of a way to track things and plan different aspects of my blog and business.
I made the polka dot vellum cover page with paper I purchased from Michaels, as well as the dividers which I cut & laminated myself using scrapbook paper. Then, I made the section labels and cut them with my silhouette.
I used a couple of Erin Condren quote stickers to spruce up my dividers. I plan to make some more eventually and use scrapbooking elements and doo dads to make them pretty! But for now, these are perfect!
Under my budgeting section I keep this monthly budget planner page. I took out the ones I already filled out for the purposes of this post 😉 I also keep my debt management worksheet to track debt we’re working to pay off and my savings plan worksheets.
In my weight loss section I keep track of my weekly weigh ins, monthly measurements, and my weight loss goals worksheets from my fitness planner.
Under the meal planning section I use this month of meals sheet to plan out an entire month’s meals. This way, we don’t repeat a ton of meals. It makes it easier for me to sit down and plan the month ahead of time. We typically only shop for a week, but I really like having this all done at once. I’m planning on working on some lists of our favorite meals, too.
Under the goals section I keep my goals for the year and my monthly goals that I set. I plan to start leaving each month’s goal sheet in here with the goals I reached checked off so I can look back and see my previous month’s goals and see all of the goals I set each month and what I accomplished at the end of the year.
In my Etsy section I use a few printables from my home business planner– the yearly planner page to create some basic plans for things to accomplish throughout the year, supplies to order/that have been ordered, expenses, mileage, etc…
In my blogging section, I keep track of my editorial calendar, yearly blog plans, giveaway plans, my blog stats that I track each month, etc..
I also am working on a running list of blog topics which is super helpful when it comes to brainstorming blog posts.
For filler paper in my Filofax I use paper from Kiddy Qualia on Etsy!
Also, if you are looking for A5 inserts, I have lots in my shop! I have printable & even some that I am printing & shipping right to your door! 🙂 If you see a page in my shop that you’d like me to print + ship to you that I don’t already have available, be sure to message me!
