It’s that time again! Setting up for a new month on my bujo is one of my favourite things to do. That being said, sometimes it doesn’t always go to plan. This time, I had THREE attempts. You can learn more about that in the video. Point is, sometimes things don’t go to plan and that’s ok. I maybe should have tried to make it work, but I also had filming issues and wanted to have a monthly setup video for you guys, since I know you love ’em so much. Anyway, I got there in the end. Phew!
I’ve been bullet journaling for eight months now and my current notebook has around 60 pages left. I think that’s pretty good! I’ve heard of some people using Leuchtturm1917 notebooks that only last a few months. I use mine primarily for collections related to time planning: future logs, monthlies, weeklies, dailies. I have some other collections but not a lot. I don’t use it as a traditional “feelings” type of journal/diary. So, I guess that’s partly why mine’s lasted so long.
Because this notebook is winding down, I wanted to do another flip-through video to show you what I’ve been doing since my last one. Check out the video below for all the details.
I’m planning on setting my new bujo up soon, and I think I will shoot some videos of this process, including the brainstorming/planning stage.
Don’t forget, if you want to learn more about what I use to bujo, read this page.
This week I wanted to try something new for me in my bullet journal. I’ve been finding that with my previous weekly spread layouts (two pages for the whole week) I didn’t always have enough room for each day. Obviously, this issue is why traditional bullet journal rapid logging for each day works so well – you use the space you need for that day. So, I decided to incorporate rapid logging, which is what I used to do, for my dailies. However, I still needed a page that I could use as an overview for the week. I wanted a space to jot down notes, goals, appointments and things that wouldn’t necessarily fit in my monthly log. This video is all about how I created the weekly overview and then an example of dailies design I wanted to use for this week.
