I’m trying to get myself into a better state of organisational mind and being more prepared mainly for my book blog Swept Away Again because I always forget when I should be posting reviews that I’ve received a copy of. As I like posting them on the release day or the day before but I tend to end up posting them a week later because I’m so scattered brained!
To help me do this I’m thinking about buying a pocket filofax. I’m quite in love with the Finsbury, but it’s rather out of my price range (£43) right now so I’m more inclined towards the Metropol which is more reasonable £24.

I think a pocket filofax would be great because I would mainly use it for the calender/diary section and also my notes and to-do lists which means that I wouldn’t have scraps of paper littering the flat and never being able to find my most recent list or note.
Last year I had a personal size filofax which I loved and adored but I couldn’t fit it into my bag along with my notebook and texts that I was reading, along with the necessarities such as a water bottle, purse, phone and pencil case etc.
Most people would see this as a sign to buy a bigger bag but I didn’t, instead I kept my filofax as my at home diary and instead bought the moleskine colour a month diary’s which while cute and thin really annoyed me when I needed to plan in advance or check something ahead of the month I had. Although they do contain a notes section at the back and a mini calender of a year to view at the front I got sick of writing out the same things every month.
