Finally I am ready to show you my Filofax Malden Compact Zipped in purple fully set up as my wallet
It should be the perfect combination; wallet and a Diary and Finance section to keep track of my spending… We’ll see how long this’ll last!
So, the pictures will speak for itself. Enjoy!
It sits perfectly in my hand.. Although it’s slightly big to carry it in my bag altogether with my main Filofax the Personal Amazona in Almond…
Opened up. As you can see; it lays pretty flat! (Right out of the box!). Really like the purple although to me it’s now the spring/summer color I’d like on my spending FF/wallet.
In the arrival of the Malden Compact I told you about all the cards and lay out.
On the left:
Credit card and debit cards. On the right a post card I cut to size and hole punched. Really like this cheerful post card!
Close up of the ‘wallet section’. A fully integrated wallet in my Malden Compact Zipped Filofax. Really love this! There’s room for over 12 cards and you can also put your cash in here, receipts, tickets and what not. In the middle there’s a zipped compartment to store your coins.
As you can see; enough room to put loads in here! Same as a zipped wallet you find these days.
On the left: Full length pocket with coupons and receipts
On the right: shopping list and cards in the first full length pocket. You can also see here the extra ‘invisible’ card slots.
Top view of the wallet compartment. Cash can be stored in the full length pocket next to the cards.
There’s also a external pocket! Lovely to have quick access to your shopping list, bus card and things like that!
Business cards holders from Filofax. In the pen loop; The Filofax Mini Barley pen in Silver from Amazon.
I use in here a Week on 2 Pages with lines. This came with a German diary (?). I’m not really sure. But I like it for this purpose. I will keep track of my daily spending each day.
Empty Expenses sheets ready to be used. I’m working each month with three different budgets. First one is B1 and is used for money for groceries and shopping. B2 is used for all car expenses and B3 is a flexible budget. This budget differs every month, depending on the expenses and bills of that month. I try to forecast this B3 as much as possible and cover all expensive. This way I can suppress my impulse shopping and purchases. It helps!
More coupons that would’ve stuffed a regular wallet, but not my Filofax!!!
On the right hand side is a almost full length pocket or flap if you will. This is very handy! Quick accessible for receipts you receive at the till (counter?) and need to store in your wallet/FF quickly. With most Personal size Filofaxes this has appeared to be really in issue to me. Especially when shopping with a 4 month year old and a 3,5 year old…
Almost closed… It’s not even that bulky!!
Together with Personal Amazona in Almond.
Hoped you like this little tour and enjoyed the pics!
See you next time!
