What is a Bullet Journal?

The bullet journal, (or ‘bujo’) is a planner system devised by Ryder Carroll.

The term ‘bullet’ relates to the layout, planning and productivity methods used – many of which we’ll be covering for you here! And ‘journal’ is more likely a term that you’ve come across before, being a daily record of news and events.

So put the two together and what do you have…?

A bullet journal contains a combination of different elements, including short form sentencing, indexing, monthlies, collections, future logs and dailies, (amongst other things!) It’s basically a planner system and a fun way to plan for the future and track the past – capturing your thoughts and plan throughout the day. 

Along with the organizational and planning benefits, there are many mindfulness, therapeutic and mental health benefits to be enjoyed through journaling. Why not check out our blog Minimalist Bullet Journal Spreads, Easy Ideas and Weekly Layouts (2021)

Bullet Journal Method

Setting up a basic bullet journal needs to only take 10-15 minutes. The best way to get started is simply with a notebook and a pen

You will likely want to introduce markers, highlighters and stickers later on, but first things first – the journal and pen is all you’ll need.

Whether it’s lined paper, dotted, spiral bound or plain, you really can use anything to get going.

Lots of journalers use Micron pens because of the fine line quality, or these light, pastel highlighters to add a splash of colour and extra organisation to their journaling spreads.

Next is the minor issue of dealing with these blank pages!

While this can be a little intimidating, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with this list of 55 weekly spread ideas.

What is a Weekly Spread?

The weekly spread (or weekly log), acts as a general overview of the whole week, a great way to plan the next seven days and structure the bulk of your planning and daily tasks across the coming week. The weekly spread is a natural step between the monthly spread and daily logs.

You can cover any appointments, key events or tasks in your schedule, along with any deadlines you might have.

There are a number of fun, creative elements that you can also utilise in your weekly spreads, and these can vary greatly, depending on what you would like to do. Here is some food for thought on trackers and logs that you can drop in to your layouts;

  • Weather (Either forecast ahead, or capture to look back on)
  • Quote of the week
  • Habit Tracker
  • Meal Planning
  • To do list
  • Calendar Thumbnails
  • Notes for next week
  • Work Start / End Times
  • Time Tracker
  • Sleep Log
  • Meal Planner
  • Fitness Tracker
  • Gratitude Log
  • Events/Deadlines
