Filofax M2 Cross wallet

Filofax M2 Cross wallet

I’m still using my fabulous Filofax for all my ‘to do’ lists, notes, addresses and diary.

I needed a new wallet, and thought it would be nice to have a wallet that I could also write notes in. I’d read about the Filofax M2 format on Philofaxy and it seemed intriguing, but this format is discontinued, so I set up a saved search with e-mail alert on eBay.

After months of waiting, there were two Filofax M2 Cross wallets listed at the same time. I put a bid in for the nicest one, which was a lovely shade of chocolate brown, as well as pristine and unused in its box. A few days later I was very pleased to win the bidding for the price of £17.66 plus £4.50 p+p.

I was even more pleased when it arrived – it is absolutely gorgeous. I am now using this as my main wallet for workdays and weekends. So finally my banknotes have a proper place to go instead of being folded up into a little purse.

It is still possible to buy diaries, address pages and note pages for the M2 format but I am just using it as a notepad with Jot Pads. The Jot Pads can be used in my main Filofax as well, which means that I can write a note in my wallet and put it in my Filofax or vice versa.

The Jot Pad pages can be used in my Filofax as well

This follows on from some other blogposts I’ve written about my Filofaxes and how I use them:

I’m joining in with this week’s Magpie Monday linky even though I’m a few days late this week. (I was on a minibreak on Monday – will tell you more about this soon)

    I used to use a filofax as a student, I loved it. The problem that I have now is that it doesn’t fit into my handbag (used to have a huge student rucksack!) but I’ve often thought about getting a larger one to help with organisation at home. I really like the idea of the little wallet with the rings in!

      I hope you find a solution that works for you. The M2 has been discontinued but they still have them on eBay every so often. The ‘mini’ size has some styles that can be used as a wallet, or you could look at the ‘pocket’ size or the ‘slimline’ size. At this time of the year it is worth checking in TK Maxx for new Filofaxes at discount prices – that’s how I got my Filofax ‘pocket’ size last summer which I’ve used as my main Filofax ever since.

    Hi, I have an M2 Balmoral, but that doesn’t have the notes/coin compartments. The Cross seems perfect as a wallet. I love the Cross/Classic, they’re so structured and ‘classic’.

      I’m very pleased with it. It’s mainly being used a wallet with the Filofax rings being an added bonus.
