Good point! So, a principle here is to ask yourself: when will I want or need to see

to look at my calendar if it has a bunch of stuff like this on it?
I have folders up to about 2015, plus an "And on!" folder for later years. I also have one folder per day for 2 months.

I let it march to the front, but I felt intimidated seeing it come closer, knowing it had a bunch of things like "renew passport" in it. So I decided to go back to leaving it at the back; but the way I use it now is that whenever I create a new folder for a specific year -- which I do when I feel like it -- I then look through the "And on!" folder and move things as appropriate to the year folder. I create new year folders as needed so that the "And on!" folder doesn't have too many things in it.
