I have been obsessing over this new organization method called “The Bullet Journal” for about a month now and I wanted to show you guys how it’s really ramped up my organization and how it’s honestly changed my life.
Bullet Journaling was created by Ryder Carroll as a way to rapid log his day and to help organize his life but has turned into this really cool community for creatives and minimalists alike! If decorating your planner isn’t really your thing, I strongly suggest taking a look at Ryder Carroll’s video describing why he created the bullet journal and how he uses it without decorating. However, if you’re like me and love a pretty planner it works great for you too!
Like I said in the video, bullet journaling has really allowed me to be creative with my weekly layouts and adapt them for what I need. I’m also able to take notes about my blog and other important things going on in my life and keep track of my meals, weight loss and more. I love that it’s one journal, one notebook that holds everything that I need. I also love that if one week I want to track my water intake or vitamins but I find it’s not working out, I take them out.
I love the beautiful layouts of the Erin Condren Life Planner or The Happy Planner but there’s a lot of aspects to those planners that I don’t use and some I wish I could build in – hence the beauty and versatility of the bullet journal.
I have a bullet journal themed Pinterest board so be sure to follow me on Pinterest for any of your bujo or planning inspirations.
Let me know how you guys like to organize your lives in the comments or on Twitter/Instagram!
