paper girl

The thing about being a list-girl is that at heart I like being organised. I love stores like kikki-k that promise to organise me, but somehow all their different list formats don’t seem to work for me. So now I have piles of lists all over the house.

The thing I have found most useful in organising my life, is my Filofax. Yes, I have an iphone and there are a number of apps like evernote that I use, but at heart I am a paper girl and I’ve a feeling I always will be.

My parents gave me my Filofax the Christmas before I got married. Man, that thing got a work out that year, all my dress fittings, appointments for the florist, etc. I guess I fell in love with it then, it kept me organised and on time. So now, 13 years later, I am still using it, and while I do get tempted by all sorts of other organisational tools, in the end this is the one that keeps me on track.

What about you, are you a paper person at heart, what keeps you organised?
