BULLET JOURNALING SUPPLIES

To start Bullet Journaling, you really just need a notebook and a few pens.

I love using a dot-grid journal- instead of a blank page, you have a page filled with tiny equidistant dots that help draw squares, and words easier. I have used Archer & Olive Notebooks for my bullet journal for a few years now and love their 160gsm quality paper.

You will also need a good black pen, some highlighters maybe, and markers in colors of your choice.

What should be in your Bullet Journal?

There are many options of what YOU can choose to add to your journal, let me describe commonly used terms and page ideas that are useful.

  • PageA Page is any single page in your notebook.
  • SpreadA Bullet Journal Spread refers to a two page layout in your journal.
  • Dutch Door When you creatively cut a page to reveal partially the page beneath it you’ve created a Dutch door!
  • Cover Page Cover Pages are used to define the start of section of your Bullet Journal. For example, at the start of the year, you would create a cover page that says “2022”. At the start of the month, you would create a page that says “January” for example.
  • Future logA page or spread that has space to jot down events, notes or task for the future upcoming months. If you are using your Bujo as a planner especially, this is a handy page to have.
  • Masterlist A comprehensive list of all the items sorted into sub topics.
  • Year at glanceThis is a calendar page for the whole year- you can either write down the entire calendar or print out and paste it into your journal.
  • Habit Trackers- A graph, drawing or illustration which you color in over time to track your progress. Popular things you can track- time spent reading, daily mood, finances, sleep, health, creativity etc.
  • A Year in Pixels Using the dots on the journal page, you create a block of 12 by 31. The 12 columns represent each month. And the 31 are the days of the month. You then color in the corresponding pixel each day and get to fill in the grid over the next 365 days!
  • Monthly SpreadA two page layout created for the month- with a calendar, monthly goals and perhaps monthly habit trackers as well.
  • Weekly Spread A single or two page layout created for the week- with the days of the week and space to write your to do lists, tasks and events.

This is the first page of my 2022 Bujo and I simply colored in the 22 by overlapping different colors. For my 2021 Bujo, I went with a simple black instead.

A year at a glance page is the most referred to page in my journal! It takes a lot of patience to write in all of the dates, I tried it once. Printing off a calendar and pasting it into your journal is simply easier 🙂

The dot grid on the page makes it the perfect setting to draw repetitive patterns. You can draw symmetrical patterns or go rogue and fill your page with wonky patterns. I always smile when I turn the page and see a colorful pattern!

Bullet journal quotes

On a gloomy day, nothing cheers me up faster than a good motivational quote. From experience, I have learned that by writing down positive words you have a stronger effect of the words on you than just reading them. Your brain takes the time to register the words as you write them down. Try it out!
