Bullet Journalling

A new year means a new planner and/or journal. I’d seen bullet journalling referenced on a blog post (I can’t remember which one), and my interest was piqued. In the past, planners or journals never quite had enough space for certain entries, or too much space for others, or simply contained whole sections I didn’t use. The bullet journal appears to solve that problem – the amount of space needed for appointments, tasks, or notes can be as big as I want them to be.

There are lots of recommendations on which journal to use. I’ve gone for a Leuchtturm 1917 in Nordic Blue. I ❤ the colour, the index system at the front, and the fact that the pages are already numbered. I’m still playing around and getting ideas from Pinterest for the different spreads I want to use.

If you get heavily into researching bullet journals, you come across a lot of very artistic and creative (but also time consuming) looking pages. I decided to start with a simple title page and build from there:

Love the simplicity of my #bulletjournal title page

I’m hoping the bullet journal will help me keep on top of everything since in additional to all our regular activities we are taking on the mammoth task of renovating this year ?

I will update on whether or not this system works for me throughout the year.
