Bullet Journal: October to November

bj-oct-2

If you haven’t heard of the bullet journal, I highly recommend you checking it out first! If you’ve been frustrated with planners or wanted a planner that incorporates all facets of your life, then the bullet journal is your answer!

Let’s take a look at what my layout for October looked like, and a sneak peek of my November layout!

I’m about 3-4 months in with my bullet journal, and I am still going strong! I feel the pressure to make it look “pretty” from time to time, but I need to remember that sometimes, simple is the best. In October, I tried a different weekly layout where I created boxes. I’m not sure if I liked it better. Oh, and say hello to our cat, Aslan. πŸ™‚

Something different I did in October was to add a second page for gratitudes, and I’m so glad I did! Two pages allows me to write at least two lines for each day of the month. I kept my gratitude page simple with a list.

November’s layout isn’t quite done, but I like what I have so far.

As you can see, I’ve done away with the boxes layout from October, and switched back to the list view. I think I like this better because it’s easier for my eyes to follow. I also like having the left and right sidebars reserved.

If you’re a perfectionist like me, making every month a different kind of layout can drive you insane! But it’s actually important that you try different layouts. Only through the trial and error will you find what features work/don’t work for you.
