Many people have asked me how I am able to customize my Filofax using printables I find or make. Usually, people have trouble print, cutting, and punching the printables to fit in their planners exactly how they want them to. Every page in my Filofax, besides my monthly calendar, I have printed, cut, and punched to fit into my A5 Aqua Malden Filofax. It took a little trial and error at first, but now I feel that I am a pro! I whipped up a video for those of you interested. Keep in mind that I am showing you how I do a week’s worth of my daily pages (plus an action list that I use at the start of each week to write down things I need to get done before I plan each individual day), so your printables might be different, but usually the method will be very similar. This video can also still help you if you are using a size other than an A5, but you will simply need to figure out the measurements on your own (or search online) for exactly how much to take off on each side for your page to be exact specifications for your planner and for all the pages to line up perfectly.
I apologize for how quickly I was going through everything in this video. I had limited time to film it, but wanted to make sure I got it filmed so I could help those who are struggling with this. If you have further questions, please leave them in the comments section here or on the video and I will be happy to help you out further as much as I can!
