I have come to very much enjoy laying out my spread and planning my month ahead with my bullet journal, and it seems such a shame not to share it. I’m not particularly artistically talented and I know there are a tonne more beautiful bujo layouts around, but why not share what I’ve done too – who knows, maybe you’ll get a kick out of it.
For my theme this month, I’ve really gone for the ‘end of winter’ theme. I googled a heap of clouds, mountains and trees sketches and cut them out for my bujo (I can’t draw lol) and accented everything with the colour blue. I used a mixture of my Crayola supertips markers, Zig Millennium marker in pure blue 02, Zig writer marker in pure blue and Zig Calligraphy marker in pure blue.
As you can see, I went with a basic title page, followed by my monthly goals page, a tracker for the book I’m working on at the minute, and a helpful monthly layout so I can see what days the dates fall on (I know it’s wonky, it’s bugging me too haha).
For my next pages, I went with a vertical monthly spread and expense tracker. I love these pages as I have everything at a glance. I also really do use my expense tracker, and I love how I’m kept accountable for even the smallest of purchases.
My trackers are my favourite part of the bujo system! Here you can see I’m tracking water and mood up the top in a line graph, with habits below in a box graph. I know it’s not the prettiest with all the lines, but when completed you can really see how well I did at sticking to my habits that month (plus, I love colouring them in at the end of each day!)
I have only done one weekly spread so far, and have kept it super simple. I actually have used that space at the bottom for weekly goals, which I’m enjoying! I used to use a double page for my weeks but I find that I tend to use my Wunderlist app or scraps of paper for to-dos, so I really only need this for my events and bigger tasks. This layout really seems to work for me, though for next week I’m going to add in the dates because I forgot that this time!
