What's in your Filofax?: Accessories

Part 3 of our What's in your Filofax? series is about the plethora of accessories you can add into your Filofax. Maps, envelopes, even non-Filofax ones (the ultra-handy Swing Pad by FC comes to mind).

In my long-term Filofax (which is my Personal Deco) I keep:

Clear page marker/ rulers in my Monthly and Weekly pages

Sticky Notes accessory

Filofax Stickers

Maps: International, Europe (which is so old it still has Yugoslavia), and Scotland (from the Filofax British Isles maps)

DayRunner calculator that I've had since 1995 which I love because it can face left or right on the rings (click here to see a photo)

Business card holder

Clear top-opening envelope

    3x End Polio Now bookmarks (er, yes, spot the rotarian here...) again acting as other page markers.

  13. oh, and I feel really stupid, but what's a FC swing pad? When I search for swing pad, the things that come up would not go in a FF! They seem to be golf-related or cushions!
