  4. How kind of you to have such an excellent giveaway! I have the patent in duck egg and must say it's a great little filofax :)
    My best planning tip is: do it every day! I find myself at a complete loss without my planner! :p
    I'd love to follow you on bloglovin but i cant quite work out how from my mobile! :p
    Thanks again, Elli :)

  6. Congrats once more :) this beauty has never appeared in Portugal, so curious. I would say that my best tip for keeping it light for an "On the Go" planner is always asking yourself "Do I really need this all the time with me?" before puting anything on it. This way I managed to keep a quite light On the go planner :) I follow you on Bloglovin. Hugs from the Organized Scientist ;)

  8. Congratulations Amanda on reaching this goal! I have been following you for a good chunck of that time. I love how you decorate your planner and am always checking for blog updates! I follow you on Bloglovin' and Facebook. My biggest tip would be to not get caught up in how everyone else pretties up their planner and make yours you. I really got caught up in it all and spent so much time trying to make it pretty that it wasn't working for me. I am now down to minimal decorations so there is more room for my documenting! I also use half the width of the skinny washi to decorate between my days and the regular with at the top and bottom of the pages. To make it half the width, I found it easiest to put a strip of washi on wax paper and simply cut in half. It peels and sticks really easy. I have also done this to make my own die cut look. Thank you for the opportunity to win my very first Filofax! Congratulations again!

  12. happy year 2!! what an achievement! im following via email. my main tip to all newbies is to sit with a pen and paper and think how you want your planner to work for you. figure out what sections you want and need, source pages that you are going to WANT to use! it doesnt have to follow the traditional filofax set up. you can include anything and everything! then have fun with it, personalise it. washi tape and stickers are always a favourite amongst the ladies in UK Planner Addicts. I have a growing collection myself and love to decorate my planner daily. A Filofax is a great tool, so flexible. Make it work for you! love, Lo Lah - UK Planner Addicts <3

  15. Two years already! How time flies!
    my best Filofax advice is to use top tabs if you can, especially in compacts. Side tabs stop pens fitting properly.
    And I follow you on bloglovin and google+ I think?

    1. You're right!

  17. Hi and congrats! My best tip at the moment is to use Frixion pens. Erasable ink pens from pilot. They really work and are great for writing things in that are not confirmed and may change. I also follow you on google + and thanks for the give away.... Lurrrrrve the lemon!

  18. Grats on your anniversary! My tip would be not to watch and search how other people use their planners too much, especially as a starter (but also later on) it's really easy to get carried away and blindly copy things you think that look nice but in the end of the day don't really work for you.
    I've been actually stalking your blog through my Feedly but with this opportunity I started following also on bloglovin and google though I don't use them all that much :P

    My best planner tip - use the darn thing, but don't let it rule your time! Get stuff done away from planning your day, ha!
    I follow you by Feedly, actually, but just added you to BlogLovin - I realize the stats are helpful through there, so I've been trying to add people on it, but I hate how it's set up...so I just ignore that account :/ But Feedly, now that I check multiple times a day, ha!

Less weight and space to carry around :D Btw, I follow you on Bloglovin!

    I am new in Filofax family, just got a pocket baby chameleon.

Allow it to be for quickly jotted notes and maybe not perfect handwriting, or the exact colour code as the most important thing is having the correct information.

  74. Hi! I'm a newbie in the planner community, I just followed you on the google friend connect thing too~ I think my tip would be to control your spending urges when it comes to decorating a planner >_< I got really overwhelmed by all the videos and posts out there and it's important to keep sight of the real purpose of a planner: to plan! Congrats on your 2 year blogiversary btw!

  78. My tip is that you should write down every phone call to a company you have to refer to it later. Try to get the CS person's name or booth number too.

    Planning tip: when I feel overwhelmed with lot of tasks to do I like to write them down (all of them!) and strike over as I complete them. This helps me to not forget anything and also to prioritize more clearly.

  84. It's me it's me!!! I'm so excited and can't quite believe it! At the grand old age of 41, this is by far the best and most exciting prize I've ever been lucky enough to win! Although saying that, the last prize I won was a 10 pounds meat voucher in the local school fair- & as a vege it wasn't the greatest haha! Thank you to the moon and back Amanda! My dogs are wondering why I'm sitting at the laptop all happy. Thank goodness I realised in time! Well I've been reading your blog and loving your great photos and inspiration since day one and hope you carry on forever! Big grateful love xxx

  85. & unbelievably it has arrived today! Wow! Most impressive! Beautifully packaged with funky washi tape & cute stickers-an absolute pleasure to unwrap. It goes without saying that I luuuurve it- it's so great to be able to try a compact; it'll be perfect for my handbag :-) I'm loving yellow atm & it's a beautiful ice creamy yellow, not a sickly pastel tone if that makes sense. So perfect for Spring; I've been playing with all my stickers, sticky notes, paper clips, flags etc-one of my most relaxing & favourite things to do. I've some lovely green accessories which I think will go perfectly & a gorgeous owl pen to pop in the pen loop. Thank you , thank you, thank you. I am super happy & super grateful & will share some pics once it's decorated :-) Mwah! xxx
