Since I reviewed my first bullet journal of 2014 and remembered an experiment I did, I wanted to try it again at this new decade in life. And I’m super excited about it! But first, here are my completed January pages. My weekly gratitude pages:
My monthly memory calendar pages. Even though I didn’t remember it every day, it turned out well.
And here’s my experiment I tried about half way through January. It’s a regular piece of printer paper that I set up as a half page fold and taped into my bullet journal. I printed a vertical calendar (DIY Fish style) on one half, lines on the other, and a habit tracker and more lines on the back.
This helps me see my monthly view when I fold it completely open, and I can fold it and tuck it away when I don’t need it. Yes, I have calendars in the front of my Bullet Journal, but I love having this flip out one to refer to while working through my week.
This is what my weekly spread looks like. The daily events and tasks are on the left side of the Bullet Journal page, and my weekly tasks are written down next to it. The next page is folded in half and I use that for my daily entries.
That folded page gets me four half page sides, so it gives me daily space for Monday and Tuesday, then I fold it to the blank side and get Wednesday and Thursday, then I usually do Friday and the weekend on the following page. Then I use the back of the Friday/weekend page for next week’s weekly set up. Does that make sense?
Here’s a pic of the half page unfolded. I started with Monday showing, then Tuesday behind it. When it’s Monday, I can see my weekly events, my to-do’s and my Monday list. On Tuesday, my to-do’s are covered and only the weekly events and my daily is showing. Anyway, I love using it this way. It works for me.
Then, (this is probably my favorite part) when the month is over, I fold the calendar flap over the January pages, and tuck them in, and store it like that. All neat and tidy.
So here’s my February page. Calendar, tasks, and on the back the habit tracker and space for more notes. I taped it in, then the next page is the menu for the month (mostly filled out).
The rest of the February pages include a monthly memories calendar…
And a new weekly set up page with daily half pages.
Later this month I’ll share my 2015 Bullet Journal and some thoughts on that. Anyway, I hope this was helpful for you to see. I’m loving it!
