Filofax on its way!

05 Jun

Hi everyone! It’s my first post and I already have great news! I bought a Filofax Sketch in Personal size from a really nice guy in the UK. I’ve only had my Metropol for a month, I know, but it was priced ridiculously well so I went ahead and thought: “Why not?!”

I did check whether it was legit, of course. The seller said it was new, never used and came with all the inserts so I wondered why he’d sell it for this price, but then again, the Sketch is a non-leather binder so it’s cheaper than the regular ones. I suppose he couldn’t sell it for retail price, as he’d already bought it. Still, I asked him for pictures of the interior and exterior to check for marks or faulty rings. It looked perfect!

I’m very excited for this because I initially wanted the Sketch, but it wasn’t available anywhere near me so I bought the Metropol instead. Now I’m still getting the Sketch and in the chocolate colour I wanted! I think I’ll swap the Metropol for stationary with someone from the Philofaxy Facebook group, cause those people are really trustworthy.

I’m not sure when the seller is shipping the parcel, and even then I have no idea how long it would take to get here. I’m very anxious to get it, cause I finally have a system that works for me so I can just take my current interior and put it in the Sketch. (Seriously, I need a name for my Filofaxes. Any ideas? I think Metropol is a girl and Sketch is a boy.) I’ve also ordered Pilot FriXion erasable gel pens and I’m very happy I did, cause I saw a review of them the other day and they seem perfect for my needs! There will be other stuff coming in over the next few weeks that I ordered from eBay, but that’s probably gonna take a little longer.

Thanks for reading, see you at my next update xxx

        Cool 🙂 I like the red colour. Mine is amber, not to be confused with orange. I love it so much.

        I know right! Metropol is a good Filo to start with… But I’m having issues with the pen loops (the left one is an odd size..) and the front pocket (it’s just too small!). So I’m upgrading soon 🙂

        The left one is ideal for a BIC four colour pen 🙂 What are you upgrading to?
