Philofaxy Meet Up - London - Saturday 17 September 2022

We are planning a visit to UK in September 2022

This event is open to everyone, there are no qualifying requirements... if you enjoy good company and you like organisers and planners of any brand then you will be very welcome and you will be amongst friends.


London - Saturday 17 September 2022

So this is a 'calling notice' for people who would like to attend the Philofaxy Meet Up in London

Please read all of the post before you apply for a place on the meet up.

When and Where

We will meet initially at 12 noon at Vapiano in Great Portland Street. This is not far from Oxford Circus underground station.



They no longer use a smart card to track what you have ordered: 

"All orders are taken by scanning a QR code at your table, and we bring all food and drink to you – no more queuing for the chef."

Alternatively download the Vapiano app and use that, I think that will be easier.

Don't panic if you don't have a smartphone.... we will make sure you don't starve or die of thirst!

You can read all about the restaurant on their website here

During the meal there will be plenty of time for chatting and sharing organisers...

Our meet up will finish at about 6:30pm but you don't have to stay to the end. 

How to book a place on the meet up

To get a place on the meet up you need to email: steve[at]philofaxy[dot]com and mark your email 'September 2022 London Meetup', you can book a place straight away.

As places are allocated you will receive an email back again confirming your place on the meet up.

Please do not book travel tickets etc until you have a confirmed place. I will attempt to confirm places within 2-3 hours of receiving your email.

Additional Information

If you aren't familiar with London or how to get to Vapiano from the station you are arriving at then use the Transport for London Journey Planner, it's generally quite good. 

Once we have our full list of people, we will exchange email addresses and if you aren't familiar with London you might be able to get someone to meet you at the station you are arriving at.

Your safety on the day and your enjoyment on the day is of paramount importance to me, so don't be afraid to ask any questions by email, I want everyone who attends to get the most from the day.

Thank you... any questions?

Free for All Friday No. 712 by Nan

As much as we love our organizers, they are only tools. It's up to us to use them to have a system for using them effectively. 

Do you follow a system like First Things First, Getting Things Done, or Flylady? Or have you come up with your own system?

I've tried all of these systems and found them too complex for daily use. Most days, I keep my calendar updated and make a list of which tasks would be the best use of my time that day—including the ones that must be done that day or else! My system is a work in progress. I guess I've learned something from all the systems I've tried, but I always end up going back to what works best for me. 

I think the best organizer is the one that makes your life easier, not harder! 

As always on Fridays, feel free to share your thoughts on anything organizer-related!

One Book July 2022


1 July is tomorrow. Who will be taking part in One Book July this year?

Firstly, what is One Book July? I believe it started in 2014. A small group of people in the planner community came up with the idea of trying to stick to just using one planner/book for the whole month of July.

There is a great post about the history of 'One Book July' in Paper Planning Magazine it goes in to full detail, so I won't repeat that here.

There are also a lot of videos on You Tube about various peoples approach to One Book July and how they faired etc.

Hopefully people will gain from the experience in taking part in the challenge.

Good luck.

Free For All Friday No 711 by Laurie

For the first time in a very long time, I am using my A5 Filofax for all planning.

For many years I used a separate bound weekly planner, so I could have a larger page size in a relatively portable book. Over the past two years when I was at home pretty much all the time, I was free to use a large bound weekly planner, along with my A5 Filofax for monthly and future planning, goals tracking, work planning, and reference. I also used a separate notebook for overspill on busy days, notes, lists, and other jottings.

While I was at home, I didn't mind having a pile of books on my table, each with a different purpose. But last month things started opening back up again, very quickly, and suddenly my system broke down when I needed to use it outside the house. I needed a portable system again.

So I moved everything into my A5 Filofax. I have tried multiple times in the past to use an A5 as my weekly planner, only to have it fail because A5 isn't a big enough page size for everything I need to write every day. I tried using weekly pages plus daily pages, which didn't work either because I was planning in too many places at once.

Now I am using my weekly pages along with undated dot grid pages. I plan on the weeklies, then each day I write my tasks for the day on the undated notes page. This helps me focus on what I need to do today, and gives me unlimited space for any notes that come up during the day.

My current system has several elements of Jotje's system in this popular guest post she did awhile back. I have tabbed sections for monthly pages, weekly pages, daily pages, lists (where I keep my categorized task lists), notes (where I can jot quick notes then move them to where they need to be later), personal, work, family, and reference. 

Now I am enjoying having all my planning in one (relatively) portable book, with just one book to reach for throughout the day. 

Has your planning system changed recently?

And as always on Fridays, feel free to ask and/ or discuss anything Filofax related!

Vintage non-branded organiser - by Anita

Due to family commitments, I haven't had much spare time for a while, so consequently I now have a backlog of posts to write!

I rarely visit eBay these days, but I did have a bit of a nose last year and managed to pick up this little non-branded bargain and was surprised that there were no other bids. And as some of you might know, I have a liking for red binders...  

When it arrived, it was clear to me that it needed a good clean and the leather definitely appreciated a good coating of Lord Sheraton leather balsam. The leather is good quality and has a nice smooth finish in this lovely bright red colour. 

There is no brand name, but inside it says 'Genuine leather, made in England'. It doesn't have Krause rings, but they open and close with a healthy snap. Whilst it's not a Filofax, I tend to call it a 'Winchester-alike' as you can see that the design is quite similar. Like the Winchesters, it has also lost the popper cover on top. 

Inside on the left, there is is one full length slip pocket, with a further two shorter pockets. On the right, there is a full length gusseted pocket with a small pen loop.  

I've previously owned a couple of Winchesters, but have sold them as ultimately I'm not a fan of the harder leather. As you can see from the photo below, this leather is much more supple and will easily bend back on itself, without causing any issues. 

As I normally do, I asked the eBay seller if they knew anything about its history and she confirmed that she'd bought a couple of these leather binders from a secondhand stall at a show about 20 years ago. When it arrived, it had some old non-branded inserts and a Filofax ruled dated 1989. 

In comparison with my Kensington - squarer spine, like the Winchesters tend to have:


It's a wonderful binder, which potentially could've been a prototype or just a copycat design made by an English company. Considering its age, it looks like either the leather is quite hardwearing or it's not had much use over the years.

Reading


During the extremely hot weather we have been having here in South West France these last few days, I've been catching up with some reading. 

Going outside even just to check for post was quite exhausting. Whilst it was 40 degrees outside I was keeping cool and calm indoors at temperatures no higher than 27 degrees, drinking plenty of plain water!. 

I'm not a very fast reader, but I do enjoy a good crime novel. I've read my wife's first crime thriller Double Identity which was very good (she wasn't standing over my shoulder while I wrote that!!) 

I'm also a big fan of Michael Connelly and his books about Harry Bosch and LAPD Homicide Detective and also Mickey Haller a defence attorney. 

It was his books I needed to sort out, they have been written over a long period of time since 1992, and his Wikipedia Page has a detailed chart of the books when they were published and the characters in them. What I didn't know was, have I read them all, and in what order! 

Now I know that there is bound to be 'an app for that' in my case it was 'I'm sure I have a template file for that

Of course we do... here!
