New Planner Pages for My Filofax - An Experiment

I've done it!  I've purchased new planner pages for Buttercup Ostrich.  I fell for "the grass is greener on the other side" mentality and started looking around for my 2013 refill.  2013, mind you!  I've been using the Filofax Cotton Cream 2 page per week layout.

It's worked really well for me.  But.....I wonder if there is something better....

Enter Franklin Covey (FC).  I went through a long phase of loving and using FC.  Then I abandoned using a planner all together.  Then I migrated to using my iPhone.  And then...and then....FILOFAX!!! Yes, the cotton cream paper is "elegant" and professional but, I want a little bit of whimsy, a little bit of color!

This is what is on its way to me.  The Simplicity planner pages.  I bought it a couple of days ago and they only had July 2012 - June 2013.  I see now that they've added Jan - Dec 2013.

I can't wait to get it.  It's the Compact size.  I'm hoping that the wider pages don't bug me.  I've already mentally prepared myself to move my planner pages to the back of Buttercup.  I'm a rebel...I know!  I actually got the idea from J of The Crazy Life of J.

I'll do a review when I get it.  I'm actually looking forward to re-writing everything into the new pretty and colorful pages!!!


  1. Lovely colours!

    I didn't realise that the compact size fitted FF Personal. I'm off to do some browsing....

    1. I'm really excited to try it out! FC has so many lovely planner pages but this was the only one that I found in this layout that didn't have lined days. I wanted the boxes to be unlined. Fortunately I like the look of the design too!

      Have fun with your FC browsing!!
