- Grab you a notebook. It can be as simple as a spiral bound notebook to a cute inspiring notebook/journal, you choose. Cheap isn’t bad…I got tired of spending big bucks on a calendar, to be honest.
- I love using colored pens. The G2 has four point sizes and 20 vibrant colors so these are my go to + Exclusive G2 packs available at Walmart during the Back-To-School season!! WIN!
I have always loved back to school supply shopping and this year is even more fun as I’m stocking up for my little miss E. I stocked up on the G2 pens for myself and the mister…You can grab your very own G2 pens by clicking on this picture, here below.
That’s it. That’s all you need!
Plan your Bullet Journal:
- Decide what you want to include on each page for your bullet journaling/calendar.
Will it include: a monthly view, a daily view or a weekly view or all of the above…what about a meal plan, grocery list, an inspirational quote, your daily to do list, important times for the day i.e. appointments, your exercise routine, a check list for family/kids, a section that has reminders of birthdays or anniversaries or maybe a section you write a “funny” of the day that your kids or spouse said. Really it can be anything. This is the beauty in bullet journaling, you decide what fits you best, there is no cookie cutter way.
Within your bullet journal:
- A monthly overview
- Daily pages
- Project page
- Goals page
Bullet Journaling Tips:
- Remember this is YOURS so customize it to the look and feel that fits you best.
- Sketch out your pages in pencil first. (at least until you get comfortable with what you want on a consistent basis)
- Use tabs so you can easily find your dividing points for the above sections
- Color code with colored pens or sticky notes
- Use washi tape to divide, write on and make colorful
- Doodle with dots, banners, numbers, shapes or colors
I’m not a drawer. I’m not a doodler. I need all of the help I can get in that department– as you can tell! But this works for me!
Do you have any practical suggestions or ideas when it comes to your experience with bullet journaling? I try to keep it simple but I’m always open to ideas, thoughts and suggestions!
