Philofaxy and stationery-nerdiness

As mentioned in my previous post here, I've got a bit of a thing for stationery. On my way home from secondary school, I would often visit a local store to window shop all the lovely pens and notebooks. I thought this was normal behaviour, I guess...

I haven't bought a notebook (for the sole reason it was yummy) since I discovered filofaxes a couple of years ago. "What do you mean, a notebook where I can move all the contents around and add to??" I know I get way too excited (to be normal) over filofaxes, pens and the such, but I figure it's a pretty harmless addiction and relatively inexpensive as long as I browse more than I purchase!

If you're a stationery or filofax fan like myself, you should get yourself over to
The first posts date back to 2005, so there's lots of stories, hints and tips, the odd competition and other filofax-goodness to peruse. They also organise regular Skype chats and international meet-ups

I think what I like most is that the site has a community feel to it, which I didn't really expect. The posts and subsequent comments are funny, interesting, helpful and encouraging. I'm disappointed I'm not available to attend the next London meet-up to meet some of these lovely people face to face.   
Go and say hello, they'll be pleased to see you there :)


  1. Anita I love that part of it too! And why am I not following your blog? I shall do that now!

  2. Thanks for your comment, CP.
    Always a pleasure to have a royal visit :)

  3. Hi! I came over from Philofaxy - I'm enjoying your blog - it's always fun to peek into someone's filofax - I get some great ideas to incorporate into my own :)

    Take care!

  4. Hi ~AspireToBe & thanks for visiting & your comment :) I've got more filofax posts to write & have just bought an A4 Identity, so will be covering that as well.
