Free for All Friday No. 445 - by Nan

Filofax organizers are great for recording events, thoughts, and ideas so you can remember them later, but what about things that haven't happened yet?

Do you use your Filofax for setting goals, outlining future plans, and keeping on track? Do you find it helpful? What do you do when goals and plans change?

And as always on Fridays, feel free to discuss anything related to ring-bound organizing!

Tell us about...... 9

Whilst finishing off yesterday's post the other night and going through the photographs for the French Meet Up post, it occurred to me that some of us do spend quite a lot of money on our planners. Or put another way, we have a lot of money tied up in our planners. 

Have you ever calculated what your total spend is on your planner collection? And if you have what was the total figure?

Please tell us in the comments below.

Philofaxy French Meet Up - May 2017

It is about 7 years since we moved to live in France, yet in that time we have never been able to organise a proper meet up. That changed this last weekend.

Back in February a few people commented about holding a meet up in France, but where? It is a big country yet the towns are fairly well spread out.

After we gathered the interested parties together on a Facebook group we started to discuss possible dates and locations.

I had decided very early on that Alison would be coming along to this meet up mainly because my French isn't that good, certainly not good enough to converse over a whole weekend about planners and organisers in French!

Marie-Hélène came to the rescue with her suggestion of her mothers Chambre-d'Hôtes and Gite near the town of Chenonceaux which is fairly centrally located for the majority of people that had shown an interest in attending.

A date was fixed and we were all able to stay the night at the Chambre-d'Hôtes as well, so on Saturday we all converged on Chenonceaux to meet up for the first time.

We took over the dining room for the afternoon. Spreading out our planners and organisers and we chatted and shared things. I gave a quick demonstration on how to swap rings, naturally!

Considering the number of people, there was a huge number and quite a range of makes (Filofax, Van der Spek, Gillio, Quo Vadis etc) and sizes from Mini all the way up to A4, one A4 by Van der Spek was fitted with 38mm Krause rings, even when empty this organiser was quite a beast! but wonderful to see of course.

We spent the afternoon looking through all the various organisers and planners that we had all brought along. Lots of discussions going on around the large dining room, it was very relaxed.

Some pictures, with thanks to Isabelle and Alison for additional photos!


The main table... quite a few here!

My side table, a mixture of Van der Spek, Gillio organisers and a Filofax or two as well.
