Spring Into Action

Participants can show off how you already utilize bullet journals to plan 


If you are a frequent peruser of my little ol’ blog here then you know that I am Obsessed with Bullet journaling and anything that involves planning. My obsession began with buying my first Happy Planner back in ’17 and then last year, I got into Bullet Journaling.
I’m a complete trash cat for Happy Planners and Happy Notes (their Bullet Journals)!

If you haven’t seen my Plan with Me posts, then allow me to show you how I have set up my Bullet Journal:

1. It’s always a good idea to have a This belongs to page with your name and email (which I don’t have on there I realize). If you are someone who travels with their Bullet Journal on their person, this page will ensure that whoever finds it has a means to communicate with you.

Opening Page: This belongs to

2. An Index: Having an index is a HUGE life saver when looking back at your spreads for the year. If your someone like me, who adds random braindump pages to her monthly spreads, using your Index will help you find that page ASAP.

3. Journaling Key: A journaling key is a MUST. The whole point of bullet journaling is to jot quick and efficient to do’s for your day. Having a Key helps you keep organized and keeps your bullet journal from being overcrowded with notes.

Index Pages

4. **Opening Page – Year: This is completely optional! I like to have a page that displays the Year of when I’m filling out the bullet journal. Since I have a Happy Notes Bullet Journal, I don’t need to buy a new one. I can simply just remove the pages and fill it up with blank dotted inserts. With the previous year’s pages, I usually put them together with a giant paperclip and pop them in a folder with the year page in front.

5. **Resolutions: Another completely optional page. I like to have my resolutions for the year written down. It serves as a reminder of the promises I mad myself for the year.

6. Future Log: A future log is a great way to plan out your events for the year. It offers a yearly look over for everything happening in your life. Birthdays, Trips, Holidays, Appointments, etc….

Resolutions and Future Log

7. **My Year In Books: I feel like this page is token for all bookworms. Especially those of use who have GoodReads goals.
The page is self-explanatory, you can draw out or write out the books you have read!

8. **Vision Board: This is something I did after seeing LB NovelTees do it. I thought it was an amazing idea to have some sort of Vision Board in my bullet journal as I bring it everywhere with me. If I ever feel unmotivated or bleak, I come to this spread for a quick pick me up!

9: Month Opening Page: If you opted out of using dividers for each month, draw out a month opening page. (I was lazy for April)

10. **Monthly Calendar: This page is completely optional. I’ve seen some bujo-ers use it and some opting to forgo it all together. I used it as a way to plan out all my blog posts, Instagram posts, and writing goals.

11. **Currently In Life: A fun little spread I saw on Pinterest. It allows me to jot down what I’m currently: Loving, Reading, Listening, Watching, Quoting, Celebrating, Feeling.

Currently in Life Spread

12. Weekly Spreads: Super Important! Weekly spreads arent the only type of monthly organization. You can also do daily’s if you are super meticulous or monthlys.
I opted for a Biweekly.

13. **Playlist Spread: I got this one from Rowena Sigh on Youtube. It’s a place where I can jot down or draw out the music I’m feeling for the month.

14. **Reading Log Collection: As a bookworm and Book blogger, I need to keep a reading log to keep track of what I already read, what I gave it as far as rating, when I started the book and when I finished it and the format. I mainly use this to keep a log of it before I put it all into Goodreads.

15. **To Be Read Collection: A cute little DIY that I did a couple of months back. I got the idea from pinterest! The Collection mimics library log cards! But instead of check out check in, I made it for planning my TBR for the month.
