Bullet journaling has been a life saver for me. Quite literally. I was at my breaking point – my depression was out of control, my brain and house were a chaotic, disorganized mess, I was always forgetting things, I wasn’t accomplishing anything. So my prayers were literally answered when I stumbled upon bullet journaling.
Now, if you’re scratching your head wondering what the heck bullet journaling is, then visit bulletjournal.com for a quick overview on the system and the concept behind it. Then visit this blog post that gives more detail and examples.
In a bullet journal, everything is planned and executed by you. It’s personal and, therefore, exactly what you need it to be. But sometimes it can be a little overwhelming to remember exactly what needs to be done in order to set up the next month.
So I introduce to you the Review/Plan/Post It method!
- Review the previous month.
- What things worked?
- What didn’t?
- What would you add?
- Plan the next month.
- What will you keep?
- What will you add?
- How many pages will you need for each spread?
- What didn’t work for you that you won’t be including in the next month?
- Use post-its to allot pages to certain spreads.
Using post-its means that it’s super easy to move a page if I need to! I was originally writing it in pencil on the page, but then I’d have to erase it. This allows for easy adjustments! I love that this method allows for mistakes that would otherwise be a pain in the butt to cover up.
This method is especially handy for someone who likes all of her monthly spreads to be together. I can allot out the pages for the month and then know exactly where it ends so that I can resume journaling right after.
Now, let’s look at some pictures of my monthly spreads for December…
I slightly went washi tape crazy 😜
