Boring Filofax?

Never to pass by a bargain when I see one (as regular readers will know) I couldn't resist snapping up this Real Leather Filofax for £2 in a charity shop recently:
It's in excellent condition and the label states its definately Real Leather:
I HAD to have it, if only for the simple reason that I've seen these selling in places like Paperchase and WHSmiths for nearer the £40 mark.

The problem is, I think the pages in it are really DULL. They don't inspire me to write creative stuff in it or even use the address pages.  So tonight, for my craft I have started altering a few pages:
Ah! That's better!  Only another 200 pages or so to go!...

Thanks for the comments. I'm surprised there aren't more funky pages out there in the market place! qwiksave x

Cor - what a bargain - if we'd been in the shop together there would have been an almighty scrap!!!!

He,He, Helen,that's funny! The secret of me getting so many bargains is going to every charity shop in town (about 8) a LOT! Sometimes I have to go in disguise 'cos the staff recognise me so much! lol. I also sometimes get this overwhealming desire to snatch something out of someone elses hands when they see something I want first! I end up just giving them a hard stare! qwiksave x
