My Filofax Collection - UPDATED!!!

Here are some updated pictures of my collection of Filofax Organizers. 
My plan was to collect as many PURPLE Filofaxes as I can. I don't think I'll get very far, but I will do the best I can do.

Here is what I have so far:

 From Left to Right:
  • Personal Holborn in Wine
  • Compact Osterley in Plum
  • Personal Finchley in Imperial Purple
  • Personal Songbird in Purple
  • Personal Metropol in Lavender
  • Personal Domino in Ultra Violet
  • Personal Apex in Fucshia
  • Pocket Adelphi in Damson
  • Pocket Malden in Purple
  • Pocket Malden in Grey (not pictured)




Currently, I am using the Imperial Purple Finchley and the Ultra Violet Domino combination. 

My dream is to own a Violet (Vintage) Winchester, an Amethyst Slimline Deco, and a Personal Baroque (even though they're not purple, they are beautiful)!

Some people unfamiliar with Filofax wonder, "Why have more than one?"
My reasoning, is like shoes/ purses. It's a collection. It depends on my mood, on my outfit, the seasons. There are lots of factors. A particular model may be hard to come by. There are those who stick to a particular model and own every color of that model -such as the Maldens, Finchleys, Finsbury, etc. 
It has become a hobby. Yes, an expensive one, but just like all hobbies, it is just something we like doing in our spare time. Not only do I jot down my to-dos and schedule my life in a Filofax, but I do it in a way that is mine. With cute stickers and tape, and stamps - so that my life doesn't look like a boring checklist of must do this and must do that. Find what works for you! If it's having 5+ planners to plan each aspect of your life (Work, Home, Kids, Health & Fitness, Books & Movies, etc.) then so be it. Some people are one planner, one person. 

This is what works for me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But that's life! 

Thanks for visiting.

  1. I think the black Baroque would still look good in your color scheme since you have a grey in there. Good luck! I'm on the hunt as well. :)

    1. I'd really like a Black or Turquoise one. Either one. Those things are so hard to find in Personal size.

  2. Oh wow, that pocket Adelphi is gorgeous! Now I want an Adelphi, lol. Such a great colour too! x

    1. Yes it is a great color. Adelphi's a tricky. Some people hate them because of snap pocket on the inside.

  3. I'm surprised, given your favourite colour, that's you're not interested in the Aston in Orchid. I have one even though I'm not really into purple in particular. I'm really happy with it.

    1. I have thought about the Aston in Orchid, but I'm hesitant on getting it because 1) It's too much like a Finchley, which I already have 2) the price - I would rather save my money for something better/different. I am glad to hear you are happy with it. If I ever find one at a good price, I would probably grab one to add to my collection!

  4. All those purple planners are simply scrumptious! I'd never be able to stick to one for more than a day at a time!
