What’s in my Bullet Journal | 2018
Time for a very overdue Bullet Journal flip through. I’ve used my Bullet Journal on and off over the last year but I have some regular pages that I do each month, even if I don’t keep track until the following month.
But your Bullet Journal can be whatever you want it to be, so long as it keeps you organised.
Mine is minimalist with a hint of colour and I mainly use it for lists and monthly updates like what I read, what I watched, what I ate etc.
Let’s jump right in.
I’ve never learnt cursive so it’s not the best but it makes for a pretty header at the start of a month.
Month at a Glance
Each month has a month at a glance on the title page, so I can see if I have anything important coming up – mostly weekend events or birthdays.
Each month I set myself four goals to achieve by the end of the month and then tally up whether I succeeded at the end of the month.
It’s the Small Things
Each month I write one good thing that happened each day, be it a small thing like cooking a home-cooked meal or something big like walking for 7.5 miles for charity. It’s a nice way to keep track of all of the good things that happen each year without having to diarise them all.
On top of my ‘It’s the Small Things’ page I also keep track of my monthly favourites, these usually include a film or TV series, a favourite book, song or experience.
I didn’t get on with monthly trackers, at least not every month, so instead I began a Don’t Break the Chain page instead. This way I track the most important things to me such as brushing my teeth twice a day, eating dinner, reading, drinking 2 litres of water a day etc.
Books I Read
An important factor of my Bullet Journal is monitoring what I read and how much each year. I have now completed my Goodreads Reading Challenge for the year – reading 80 books – but I still have my Reading Analysis still to come.
I wanted to keep track of my meals so that I could better budget for my £20 a week spend. I don’t always eat breakfast, lunch and dinner every day and it’s not always the healthiest of menus but it was a good management system for me.
It’s important to have financial goals in order to properly save for them and to keep on track of other bills as well.
30 before 30
I love a good list, so I created a list of things to do before I’m 30.
It’s also good to keep track of the TV shows I’ve watched and want to watch in future.
100 Women Writers
I also keep track of the female writers that I want to read within my lifetime. This challenge was started by the Jeans Bookish Thoughts.
