Hi! If you're anything like me, you read about the Bullet Journal and wanted to make one for yourself. This guide will teach you how to set it up and make it your own.
You may wanna be cautious and use a pencil first, but I assure you that it is an ultimate pain because it smudges and wears out over time. I highly suggest using Bic Clic Stick assorted colors.
Some of you are steady handed and can print neatly in a straight line, but those of you who cannot, try using a ruler. You can also use it to draw boxes around your lists.
I got my Leuchtturm at Chapters. They sell them with graph paper, blank paper, or dotted paper. I personally prefer dotted over graph and blank, but it is really a personal preference.
Stickers are a personal preference, I have yet to use them, but I think I will.
Yes, this is irrelevant. But snacking can ease your Bullet Journaling worries and well, snacks are tasty.
Two words, Yassss Pinterest
I use a binder clip as a bookmark. You can buy some really pretty ones from various stores.
So first thing you see is your index. My Leuchtturm has an index in it and that is where you write down what pages what stuff is on.
You will need to create a month by month log. Simply divide each page into 3-4 spaces. Keep doing this until you reach 12. Then label each one with a month. This will be the spot to write down events.
Basically, you can write lists, appointments, bucket lists, movie titles, ect, in your Bullet Journal. If you struggle from mental health issues like me, you can make a mental health chart in it.
Last thoughts: I enjoy writing quotes or reminders to myself in the journal to make it personal. Pinterest helps a ton for inspiration, I recommend creating a board just for Bullet Journal ideas.
Here are some examples of my Bullet Journal that you are welcome to use!
Good Luck and have fun!
