I have been bullet journaling for about 2 years now, and I am absolutely in love with it! A bullet journal is personal, super easy and great to organise! I also like how you can totally personalize it, just how you want! Today I am going to teach you the basics to bujo's, so let's get started!

WHAT IS IT?

A bullet journal is a usually a dot-grid notebook. But you can also use a notebook with blank pages.
It's major use is ORGANIZATION. A personalized agenda full of to-do lists, calendars, weekly spreads, lists of movies you have seen, wish lists and creativity! You can literally put anything you want in there.

There are, however, a number of things you will probably want to include in your next bujo.

KEY & INDEX

A bullet journal is nothing without a key. Use small doodles for tasks, completed tasks, events, birthdays, ... Keep it simple. If you are quickly writing a new to-do, you don't want to draw a whole piece of artwork.
The index is where you put page numbers with the titles of topics found on that page. VERY helpful when you are looking for this one week!

FUTURE & WEEKLY & DAILY LOGS

Right after your index, start with a future log. A yearly overview! The big calendar. This will take some time, but no bujo without a future log!
Weekly logs are where you are going into detail on a week.
Personally, I don't use daily logs often, but when I do, I do it because I have LOTS of tasks and events that day. Very busy. They provide a great overview!

LISTS

Really, the options are endless. Want an overview of movies you want to watch? Write it in your bullet journal! Same with books, songs, wish lists, quotes, ... anything you can come up with! Be creative and get organized babyyy!

TRACKERS

Trackers are also one of my favorite bullet journal pages! And they do help me A LOT. I usually use them once every month, and every day I track if I have gone to bed on time, practiced piano, ... This is very personal, but it is proven that when you write your goals down, you will complete them more easily! You are also reminded every day, so I looooove trackers!
