Back in September I decided it was time I jumped on the Bullet Journal bandwagon and I have been obsessed ever since. The Bullet Journal system was developed by Ryder Carroll as a mix between a notebook and planner in order to meet your needs in a paper format. I love that it can be whatever you want it to be, whether that is a diary, a notebook of lists, a place to doodle and draw or a mix of everything. Since I have never quite found a system that has worked for me, having tried numerous types of planners and diary’s the Bullet Journal system just works for me.
This month I am trying a new layout and I have taken inspiration from a couple of lovely bloggers in order to set it up and make the most use out of it. The main things I like to fully plan out are our meal plans and blog posts and rather have them on a week by week basis I have taken an idea from Chantal from Milk and Nappies to pop the whole month into one big meal plan spread that I have here with my monthly calendar. This photo was taken before I really got started on this weeks meal plan so it is a little bare but I love that I can see the whole month at a glance.
I was inspired by Hayley at Hayley From Home for my blogging spread and I am just in love with it. I can see where I need to fill in gaps and I can see what ones I want to post and I can pop a little ‘S’ in when I have scheduled it in. My blog stats page will be filled out so that I can compare two months at a glance- so next month will have November and December then it will be December and January etc. I think it will be easier to write it in twice than to go back and forward to different pages all the time. I have blacked out a few bits of sensitive information as I don’t want to give too much away.
