I don’t mean to brag but…I AM THE DAMN BEST THRIFTER IN THE WORLD! I’d venture to say that each of us thrifters have a Holy Grail of sorts. Like finding a long-lost Van Gogh among the poorly kept picture frames. Well, I had one. Yes, had…CUZ I FOUND IT! Over the last few months I have purchased a couple of Filofax’s for my ever-growing planner
obsession addiction, er, supply. I wanted to be one of those lucky ones that I kept reading on my support group, um, planner group page that found a dusty old planner at their thrift shop.
Well, I did it. I was at my local GW (aka Goodwill for those not in the know) and was digging around the office supply area. I truly mean, digging, and I caught a glimpse of a reddish binder….and then I saw the spine…and that all to familiar Filofax emblem…ZOMG!
I could not believe it! There is was! In my hands for $1.99! (less the usual 20% cuz I don’t pay full price at the thrift store). She is a bit worn around the edges (who isn’t these days) and she is mine.
It is a Cherry Personal size Classic edition. On the US Filofax fax website the retail is around $110.00 (yes, that is correct).

C: Since it had zero inserts, I used the Barnes & Noble Puncuate inserts (it comes with credit card holders & zipper pouch) and made the flyleaf with transparency film (also a GW find) and a piece of scrapbook paper for the cover
D: When I first got her home, I named her Scarlet but I found the dice charm at Joann’s and decided to name her Lucky (to remind myself how lucky I was to find her!)
