Filofax Refillable Notebook Review

I’ve been working hard on lots of planner posts and videos lately, as I really want you guys to use this space as a resource when searching for planner options!

So when Filofax got in touch and asked me to share their latest product, I knew my fellow stationery geeks would love to see a review of the Filofax Refillable Notebook.Filofax-A5-Refillable-Notebook-Review-By-ClaireabellemakesThe refillable notebooks are A5 or Pocket sized and come with an elastic closure. Made from a leather look material, the notebooks are available in vibrant colours such as fuschia (pictured), aqua and orange. For a more corporate or classic look, you can find them in black, navy and red.


The notebooks are spiral bound and lay flat when opened. Each one comes with a clear ruler, dividers and lined/grid pages that can be easily removed and added to the notebook. You can buy the Filofax pages to refill, or DIY your own by using a hole punch and cutting a slit.A5-Refillable-Notebook

The dividers included are standard A5 size and one has a pocket on the front. The colours are a bit ‘office supplies store’ if you know what I mean. I think they’d be worth decorating or covering as the primary colours don’t seem to fit with the pretty fuschia look. Filofax-Dividers-For-Refillable-NotebookThis would be a great notebook for students or for someone who is working on projects that have a particular life span as papers can be switched out easily. Filofax-Notebook-ReviewDespite the small spiral, the notebook can be filled with quite a few pages and it’s best selling point is that it can also be folded back on itself. Review-Filofax-Refillable-Notebooks It is a lightweight notebook so perfect for carrying around in your bag.Refillable-Notebooks-Filofax

The notebooks are reasonably priced at £12.99 for A5 and £9.99 for Pocket and are available hereA5-Refillable-Filofax-Notebook

  1. Great Review I have one and am just about to use it to Bullet Journal and I would be interested to know how you would use your own paper as it has 8 punch holes ?

    1. You can buy a hole punch for the Notebook, it’s a little on the pricy side however it would soon pay for itself if you plan to use the Notebook a lot due to how expensive buying ready punched paper is. Alternatively, you could skip buy Filofax paper and look to eBay as there’s quite a few sellers who sell pre-punched paper and pretty, custom dividers.
