Filofax Containment Part Two

Hi everyone!

I previously showed you how I store Filofax inserts in this post.

I found some cheap-o accordion files that fit the personal, pocket and mini sizes perfectly.  I love that I can separate the inserts by type -- lined, unlined, colored, finance, to-do, etc. -- and access them quickly.

Inserts fit these accordion files perfectly.

Today, I'll be showing you how I store the binders themselves.  (Apologies in advance for the lousy photography.)

As I acquired more binders, I knew I had to find a way to keep them clean, dust-free, and generally out of sight.  I also wanted to be able to access them quickly enough, and separated by size (sense a theme here?)

Fortunately, I still had two unused packs of these Ikea Kassett storage boxes that I hadn't opened yet.  I love these and I get a few of these whenever I can.  They come in packs of 2 for very little money.  They're actually made to hold CDs, and I've used them for that, but I have used them for so many other things too, they're so versatile!  They come in many colors and sizes, but I prefer white.

One box for each binder size

I don't have A5s, so these only contain
Personals, Pockets and Minis

I used to have them stored on a table (below) since they're pretty enough to be out.  I've since stashed them in a cabinet though, out of sight, because I wanted the extra tabletop room.

Uniform storage for Filofax binders.
As you can see, I have quite a few of these Ikea boxes.  (:

I'm so happy to have found another use for these boxes.  I hope to pick up a few more packs when I can so I always have them in stock.

How do you store your 'faxes?  I'd love to get a few more ideas.

That's it for today, thanks for visiting!


  1. These boxes are so pretty! I store my FFs in their original boxes, stacked in a row, like books, on my bachelor's chest.

    1. Which reminds me, I have to find a use for all those boxes. (:
