Filofax Spotlight: Interview with AdamsFilo

Can you tell that we've made an awesome group of Filofax friends? Once again, to share the love with CoolPencilCase fans, here's another interview with an awesome filofaxer! Adam, of AdamsFilo, tells us what kind of pen he uses everyday, a little about masking stickers, and even links his youtube video sharing his "on-the-go" the rest below!

1. Describe your love of stationery to us.
I've loved stationery since I was in school, I always wanted to try all different types of pens and pencils. I lost the love as I grew up but in the last couple of years i've regained it, big time! When I was younger I had no clue there was a huge world of stationery items out there! Now I have access to them all thanks to stores, like coolpencilcase, I love being able to try all of the different things and build my collection of stationery from all over the world! Its just so much fun!!

2. What do you love best about your favorite Filofax and why?
I have several Filofax's so it's pretty difficult to pick a favourite, but recently i've been enjoying my Grey Finsbury so much! The cover feels so great, its nice and stiff which is perfect to support the pages while writing. But it also has some cushion to the leather which feels so amazing to hold and carry! Plus its a gorgeous colour and theres plenty of pockets to take some goodies on the go!

3. Tell us about your favorite and most used Filofax accessory (bookmark, gel pen, stamp, etc).
One of the things I use every single day is my Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto pen. I have a 4 barrel Coleto that I carry in my Filofax. They write beautifully and I love having different colours to write with, i'm able to colour code the information I write down with the same pen!

4. Where are some of your favorite places to shop for Filofax accessories, school supplies, and crafts?
I have a few go-to stores for different things, for pens and paper my fav's are 'Jet Pens' and 'Cult Pens'. For other stationery items and Filofax accessories I love 'Cool Pencil Case' and 'Mochi Things'!

5. Can you give some tips on those who love decorating their Filofax pages but are on a budget?
Theres a great product called Masking stickers, they're available from eBay and Etsy sellers for a very reasonable price. They're small packets with 20+ sheets of stickers, each with different colours and designs. They're a great way to start decorating your Filofax pages. They come in several different sets so there will sure to be a design to suit everyone, my favourites are the plain colour set & pastel set!

6. When did you start using your Filofax and how did it change the way you prepared for the day/week/month?
I started to use my Filofax properly last March. I used to have little notes and reminders all over the place, scraps of paper around the house, notes on my iPhone. It just wasn't working for me, I needed somewhere to keep my whole life organised. Now I have a tool to keep track of every element in my life that is fun to used, so fun that it has become my hobby! Now everyday I will start by opening up my Filofax, looking at what I have to do that day and to see whats planned for the rest of the week using my weekly diary. I also have a monthly diary so I will go to that to see if theres anything important coming up like birthdays or appointments! I have a video about my diary set up here;

7. How do you organize all of your stationery and supplies?
I have some storage boxes that I use, I seperate my supplies by type so I can get to what I want quickly. Using boxes is great because although I love my stationery collection I don't want to see them cluttering up everywhere. So I keep everything organised and put away! I also have a pouch that I call my 'on-the-go' stationery, I keep a selection of my favourite supplies in that and I carry it with my Filofax so I always have something nearby to use. I have a video sharing my 'on-the-go' stationery and what I carry in it here;
