One of the things I love the most about the new year is that it feels like a clean slate, therefore lots of ideas and plans, but this year started without my regular planner supplies, and I didn’t want to buy a bunch of stuff when I have plenty of options back home. So, I decided to try to make due with what was available here in “Ye Town of Small Options”.
I’m using some of the pages from the Happy Planner Journals. The original idea was to have a place to jot down a list or two. I had started out in the smaller one, but quickly found I needed to up-size to the larger pages.
The first page is a month grid, it helps to know how the days are landing, and a great way to use some of my Sassy stickers!
The next section is the important dates to remember by week. January had close to 5 weeks, so I just improvised. Which is the the thing I love the most about Bullet Journaling, you can customize it to your style and what’s going on that month.
These are my “list” categories for the month. They will always change depending on what’s going on. Usually, I have pages of lists that I refer to, or at least hope to, but having all my lists on a single page spread works much better for me.
My first “Week on 2 Pages” of the year, and I’m loving it! I really don’t feel as if I have to make boxes every week. If I don’t have time, I’m fine with just making a list and decorating is totally optional.
Now, I realize that this isn’t the authentic style of Bullet Journaling, and I’m not sure If I will always take the time to draw everything out every month, but I’m going to give it a shot. I always have the original Happy Planner pages to fall back on if I get bored or lazy.
I tried to be thorough with my descriptions here, if not, please feel free to ask any questions in the comments. I made a supplies list down at the bottom of this post.
I’m driving back over the passes today, wish me luck!
And as always,
