Free For All Friday No. 524 by Laurie

Lately I've been watching my budget closely, to be able to afford all the upcoming holiday expenses. It got me thinking about how my Filofax helps me save and manage my money.

I'm still using my budgeting pages (as I described in this post) to see upcoming expenses throughout the year. I also have a reference page with my standard monthly expenses like mortgage, utilities, etc.

One way my Filofax helps me save money is I no longer waste money buying planners that end up not working for me. I seriously cannot count the number of times over the years when I ordered a planner online, then when it arrived I discovered it did not have the features I needed or it just did not work for me in some way.

Now if I want to experiment with new planner pages, I just mock some up and print them out to try before I buy. Or even better, I pay nothing for planner pages by either making my own or using the Philofaxy free printable inserts.

How does your Filofax help you save/ manage your money?

And as always on Fridays, feel free to ask and/ or discuss anything ring binder organizer related!
