I started bullet journalling in April. I wasn't really sure if I would stick to it or not, so I just took an old notebook I wasn't using to start. I pinned and tumblred and googled all sorts of examples of bullet journals, and went at it.
The notebook has a folder when you first open it up, so I've stuck a couple star stickers in there (you'll see what I use them for later) and sticky notes. I made a cute cover page and a pretty elaborate key - of which I use about 5 symbols.
I like making my monthly pages simple with a list of major events and holidays and my goals for the month. This month I decided to implement something I found on Pinterest and make a challenge page to keep track of my progress with my 2 big goals: drinking less soda and spending less money.
I started doing a weekly view last month, and I really like it. Again, I like keeping it simple by listing out the tasks I want/need to accomplish that week. I have these tasks organized by category: family, class, personal, and home.
For the daily view I write the day of the week and date at the top. I set up the page in the morning and write down the main tasks and appointments I have that day.
This page helps me feel so organized throughout the day because I can look at what I need to get done, add assignments for class, and write down videos to look up later, or topics to look into. That is what I think is really great about the bullet journal system - instead of going crazy trying to remember everything, I can just write it down and know I have it all in one, safe place I can look back at later.
Then in the back I keep a few ongoing lists. I have an inspiration wall for quotes I like, a list of major events that go on throughout the year, my morning routine, and a few other lists. I wish I used this section of my bullet journal more, but I really just forget about it a lot.
Do you have a bullet journal? How do you use it?
