If you’ve been following along with this blog at all in the past, you’ll know I’m a sucker for organization. When I was searching for the perfect planner for 2016 in which to write all of my world domination plans, I was stumped. So many options! And the number one thing holding me back is my current daily journal.
I’ve had my Piccadilly Essential Notebook since January 2014, and it’s been my everything. Story ideas, shopping lists, habit trackers – they’ve all gone into my little black book for
two years. I know of many planner-addict bloggers who swear by their three-planner system, but I’m a one-and-done kind of gal. Having a planner and an everything else notebook was making me a little crazy.
Then, I stumbled upon Bullet Journaling via Pinterest.
To sum it up, it’s an analog system of organization that can be applied to any blank notebook. It has basic rules in place to help you better make use of your paper system.
Mind blowing and very, very simple.
Instead of buying a new planner, I’ve started using the bullet journal system in my Piccadilly, and it’s made all the difference.
Some of the basics of bullet journaling I’m not a fan of (like the month overview page; I hardly used the one I made for January), so I skip them. The beauty of the system is that you can customize it however you like.
In fact, there are pages dedicated to so-called bullet journal “hacks” (see one below) that people have come up with. Some of the coolest ideas can be found here. Just a few more ways to personalize the system to fit your individual needs.
#planwithmechallenge Day 7: Habit Tracking I've changed up my habit tracker a bit this month. It was pretty tedious to draw out the full grid last month, so I decided to just accent the dots in my #BulletJournal to make a rough outline. I also quit calling it a "habit" tracker since some of the items I like to track are not necessarily habits ☺️ Oh, and I brain-farted on the number of days in October but in just rolling with the punches 😁
Can you tell I’m obsessed?
