Bullet Journal 101: How I Bullet Journal + My Favorite Stickers

 

My experience:

I discovered bullet journals a few months back. I have been really obsessed since then and have joined the Bullet Journal Junkies group on FB which has been awesome!

I was curious so I looked into it. I discovered bulletjournal.com which has this video that explained the concept.

However, I'm not a minimalist in the type of ways that I do bullet journaling and love to make mine a bit more colorful and fun, similar to Erin Condren style except with bullet journals you can arrange the pages any way you want. 

What I also love is the idea of making lists. I now have lists of movies to see, books to read, blog posts to write and videos to film. If I have an idea, I write it down. It's a perfect way for me and thousands of others to keep their life on track!

I decided to do weekly spreads, vs daily or monthly, as I can flip from week to week easily. It's pretty time consuming TBH but I'm going to try to set it up at the beginning of the month. I've got most of my stickers now, so hopefully won't spend so much time on those!

The example below is an old spread I did. I added shows I watch, workouts, to do, to buy, chores & habits as well as some decorative things. My handwriting is awful, which is another huge reason I use stickers! I have even more listed on my pinterest board

Tools I use:

Bullet Journal: I got a plain black journal because I didn't want to pick a color and regret it. I like how it's my "little black book" and it kind of looks like a normal notebook

 

Pens: These were requested to me and I like them!

 

Mini Ruler: I saw this in a buzzfeed post about bullet journals and thought I need to use this!

 

Pen Holder: Wanted something cute, cheap and easy to use, this was perfect!

 

Stamps: I went to Michaels looking for stamps and these are literally so perfect!!

My favorite Stickers:

I have spent so many hours looking for free stickers online. I've found a few and had to make a few of my own!

I've made a few of my own! I'll add some screenshots here. I needed some for some recurring events that happen monthly, as well as weekly hourly breakdowns.
