Early on in the year, I came across the bullet journaling system and it sparked my interests. I’ve always been into planners and journaling but this system was something different and I wanted to give it a try. Today, I’m going to share how I started my Bullet Journal.
The BuJo is a system that adapts to your life every single day. According to the Bullet Journal website, the Bullet Journal is a customizable and forgiving organization system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above. It will teach you to do more with less.
It’s weird starting a new planner in November but I couldn’t wait till the new year to start bullet journaling when I bought the Leuchtturm1917 notebook, a popular notebook amongst bullet journalers.
I started my journal with 2 swatch pages. This allows me to test markers and pens on a page of the journal and it also serves as sort of a log to all the stationery tools I have.
The next few pages is where I set my future logs. This is where I could see my year at a glance. I’ll put in important dates such as birthdays or appointments and will refer back to these pages when planning out my monthly and weekly spreads.
I set the next page as sort of a self growth section. I will fill in the two sections with my resolutions and my goals. The bottom half will serve as my monthly savings tracker.
This last page serves as my Watch & Read List. I kept an empty page afterwards because I know I will fill these pages up quick. Whether it’s something I’ve never seen/read or something I’ve seen/read a million times, I will keep track for them here.
I like the BuJo system because it caters to your needs. You could set your BuJo however you see fit for your lifestyle.
I will be sharing more monthly and weekly spreads as I continue on with my Bullet Journal so stay tuned! x
