Bullet Journal- November Layout

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 Nappiesย 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 byย Hayley at Hayley From Homeย 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.

My weekly spread is now super simple compared to what I have been using in previous weeks and I am hoping to keep it to one page a week. I never tend to stick with a proper to do list so this make it easier to keep track of what I have on each day and what housework I need to do and then there’s still space for extra bits and pops I need to pop down if need be.ย 

So there it is my November Bullet Journal layout, How have you done yours?

    I have kept a bullet journal for just over a year now & I could never go back to any other way of planning I love it. I have a separate planner for my blogging but I do like the blog plan layout you are using.

    I love journals! I'm really old school so on this aspect and I really like the feeling of writing your ideas on a piece of paper. I'm going to “steal” your idea for the meal month planing cause this will probably make our lives so much easier at home! Thanks for sharing it ๐Ÿ™‚
