The 2-minute Bullet Journal for busy people

A few months ago, on my Facebook page, I created a survey where I asked questions about the Bullet Journal. As one of these questions, I asked those that had not yet started a Bullet Journal, what was stopping them? Why hadn’t they started a Bullet Journal yet? One of the most popular answer was: they didn’t have the time to. I paused to think about this answer for a moment. Is the Bullet Journal taking up a lot of my time? The answer: yes and no. Yes, because I like to come up with different styles for my pages, …

The ultimate beginner’s kit for starting a Bullet Journal – at a small price!

When I started using a Bullet Journal, I would have loved to have someone tell me what to buy. I’m joking, of course! (Kinda) But, still, at the beginning, I didn’t know what was what when it was time to buy supplies for Bullet Journaling. I wish there had been a guide on how to build your beginner’s kit! There are so many paper shops out there, and so many different styles and art forms, that it is difficult to buy everything needed for your new Bullet Journal in one visit to the store. It is also impossible to come …

Lookback at one year in my Bullet Journal

It has already been one year. One year since I started using a Bullet Journal, that I adopted this organisational system that keeps on getting more popular by the second. Indeed, on March 9th, 2017, I started my first Bullet Journal, and since then, I am hooked. In one year, I have thus filled up two Leuchtturm1917 journals and I have two more waiting to be opened. Many things have changed in a year, including my supplies, the pages that I include in my Bullet Journal, my page set up, etc.   Note: this article contains affiliated links. That means …

Collections in your Bullet Journal: what are they?

So, you’ve started your new Bullet Journal. You did the basics first: you’ve included an index, a Future log, a Monthly log, and your Daily logs, all the things you need to be on your way to a more organized life. But the Bullet Journal isn’t used only as an agenda. Come into play: collections. Collections: what are they? Collections are not part of the usual daily planning: however, they can add to it nicely. Collections are unique entries, on a separate page, to write down and follow a project or a long-term goal. They are, for example, to-do lists …

Have you ever had to travel for work? Perhaps you must travel for business often: how do you get ready for it? Traveling for work sometimes allows to mix work and pleasure. At the end of the work day, we occasionally have some free time to visit the new and unknown city, especially when our business trip is a couple days long. And even if it’s a city we’ve visited in the past, those couple of days are still a change from our every day life. Perhaps you’ll get to enjoy that new restaurant that doesn’t have a location in …
