I decided this year I was going to take my journal and diary writing more seriously. Deciding what to use was a bit of a nightmare, I bought so many different Journals, Diaries and Filofax inserts, it was shocking! I finally decided to write my journal in a Moleskine Diary, then I had a separate notebooks in my Midori Traveller's Notebook for my Reading Diary and Health Journal. I had another diary going to note down the weather, my food intake and how I was managing my time and finally I had my Crochet Journal. I was also contemplating on starting a Spirituality/Tarot Journal.
As you can imagine, in the evenings when I write in my Journals, it was a bit of a haul pulling out all these different journals and diaries. It got me thinking, I just needed something where I can write down all this stuff on one place. So, do I use a Filofax and have different subject tabs or can I get all this info down on one page ???
First I needed to decided on a Filofax. I recently swapped a A5 red Finchley, so I put my 365 Day Journal into this Filofax, then took my favourite A5 Finchely in Imperial Purple and made some inserts for it.
The first inserts I added were, the Monthly divider tabs. The A5 Finchley doesn't have huge rings so I can only get 4-6 months in it at a time.
Next I needed to make the inserts I wanted to use:
So now I have all my info covered over 2 pages and I don't have to keep so many different journals.
I've been using this system for just over a week and it's working out really well, plus I get to use my lovely A5 Finchley every day too. I use 2 four coloured Bic pens so I have 8 colours to work with.
