Starting a bullet journal

October 27, 2017

I know I’m late to the party, but I’ve bought myself a bullet journal! I keep seeing them everywhere and decided it would fit in perfectly with my oh-so organised life.

Notepads and lists have always been my go-to thing – So when I found out what a bullet journal was I got totally excited and bought one! I went for the Leuchtturm 1917 and also bought some coloured fine line pens to go with it.

My plan for my bullet journal 

2018 is creeping up on us really quickly. I’ve decided to prep my bullet journal to start using in 2018. I know everyone says that you can start using one at any time of the year, but I’d much rather start it in January. The bonus with this is that I can prep different page spread ideas now and it’ll be ready to go in January.

I’ve read lots of peoples blog posts on bullet journal page spread ideas. If you have a blog post about one please leave the link below as I’d love to read it! I’ve also watched various Youtube videos and I’ve looked on Pinterest at different ideas. The great thing about a bullet journal is that you can make it work for you.

My Page ideas 

I’m only just starting out, so I’ve not got tonnes of pages yet but I thought I’d share what I have so far!

    I started a bullet journal but then kinda gave up because I lack creativity and time to make everything pretty. Yours looks amazing though, and good luck with the saving!

      Thank you!! I’ve always been very creative so I get a lot of enjoyment out of it!
      Although that being said you don’t really need to be particularly creative, you can always get inspiration from others 😊

  5. I would love to start a bullet journal, but I’m such a perfectionist, I would be constantly worried about how it looks! I love how original your ideas are, and that little illustration of the money jar is so cute! Best of luck with the journal my lovely x

      Haha I was having that problem too when I started that I like everything to be perfect! It’s definitely been hard trying to adjust to the fact that it is a little messy in places! 😂

    I bought two plain journals at the start of this year to begin a bullet journal and they’re both still in their cellophane, oops! I do love the idea of a bullet journal and you’re making me want to get my journal out and make a start.
