I love being organised and I love a pretty notebook, so bullet journaling is pretty much perfect for me! For those not in the know, bullet journaling is having a well deserved moment with stationery lovers and planner geeks like myself. It basically takes all those post-it notes and lists that we’ve all got dotted around and combines them neatly in one notebook.
Genius! You can get inspiration for bullet journaling spreads from Pinterest and you can check out the board I created here. I also recommend watching some videos for bullet journaling and I found Claireabellemakes’ and Nikki McWilliams YouTube videos really inspiring.
So here’s my own BuJo (how modern).
As you can see, I’ve messed up my index page but I’m going to fix that. The thing I like most about Bullet Journaling is that I can keep track of things, which will be useful when I come to reflect on my business each month and at the end of the year.
I was really nervous about starting the bullet journal – the spreads on Pinterest were all so artistic and gorgeous that I feared messing up my fancy new notebook! So I’ve kept it quite simple to start off with but I’m now enjoying being a bit more creative. I’ll show you more spreads over the coming months and you can keep track of them over on my Instagram feed.
I’m going to add a bookshelf spread as I’m planning to not buy any more novels this year until I’ve read all the ones I already own. Does anyone else find book buying totally addictive? So far, I’m really enjoying using my bullet journal and it’s certainly useful for keeping track of things and planning my weeks and my product development. Do you bullet journal? What do you find most useful about it?
