I finally found a way to make my bullet journal look professional and pretty! Well, at least I think so.
I did a massive change in my BuJo this month. A big part of it was tested out in my ‘experiment BuJo‘, of wich I discussed the results of in this post. I made the decision that I am not coloring my weekly spreads anymore, since that went terribly wrong last month (whoopsie). The color will now come from my trackers and my color code.
The only thing I changed (compared to the month before) was my weekly layout. It was simple, calm looking and I had lots of space to write notes and mood triggers. But I needed to change it a bit, since I’m starting a habit tracker next month. So I tweaked the trackers in my weekly spread to fit a mini habit tracker in there. I’m sure that I’ll forget to fill it in if I don’t see it every time I open my journal!
My findings for this month is that I’m getting close to a really good way to make life organised and functional. This layout does need a few more tweaks to make it perfect, but I’m taking my time to make sure that I’m doing it right. I think/hope that the habit tracker will be a big step in the right direction. Also the less frequent presence of bright colors will help making bullet journaling a calm and simple part of organising.
But that was last month, I want to show you how the experiment from March has changed my current bullet journal layout. Let’s get down to the good stuff!
I finally had enough courage to make a fancy spread for this month. I really liked to draw the flowers and making these pages look good. It isn’t perfect, but it will do for a first try. The only thing that really annoys me is that I accidentally swapped the pages. The June page is supposed to be on the left page, and the calender on the right. At least it looks decent! :p
Sleep, habits, money and goals trackers
All the trackers are now at the front of this month. I used to put the money and sleep tracker in the front, and the goals and monthly calender in the back. I hope that this will be easier since they are all in one place. The habit tracker will hopefully help me with getting a good and healthy lifestyle and daily routine.
As you can see, everything is drawn in black fineliner (no more markers!), and the color comes from the color code and trackers. I use the same layout as last month, but I added the mini habit tracker. If you look closely you’ll see that I drew small icons to show what I’m tracking.
And that’s it! I hope that this months layout will stick and work out great!
See you in the next post!
