    A5 Filofax Finsbury Planner Review

    Something you may not know about me is that I was a Filofax fan long before I got into bullet journaling. While I still love bullet journaling, the way I use my bullet journal has changed significantly over the past few years. What I needed from a planner has changed and that eventually led me to buy an A5 Filofax Finsbury ring-bound planner. I do still intend to use the bullet journal system in this new ring binder. The flexibility of the ring system, along with the ability to design a planner to my exact needs have made the Finsbury planner a better alternative to using a standalone bullet journal…
