Bullet Journal – July review & August set up
Here’s how my July bullet journal filled up…
The “What I Did This Month” page ended up not working because I was kind of already reviewing my day on the “memories” page for this month. So for August, that’ll be gone.
And the “one line reading reflection” was a great idea, but I’m still learning to be more consistent with it. Definitely keeping that for August.
Love a memories grid like this. If I have time I can doodle, if not, I can just take notes. And blank squares are okay too. I wasn’t super excited about the color I chose for this month of orange. I think I need some different colored markers, more muted. I’m not a bright colors person.
And this habits page? I LOVE it! I don’t know what it is about having the little calendars for each habit, but I love it. Maybe it’s making the pattern and wanting it filled in, instead of empty space? Whatever it is, definitely repeating for August.
Then from there, it just goes into my boring and messy weekly grid and daily pages.
So here’s what August looks like.
I’ll color in this front page as I have time during the month. Usually if I’m stuck on an idea or thinking through something coloring helps me think through it.
A mini calendar for a reminder (need to color in the dots still), two goals for the month, and a to-do list that is too full already! And the habits page round two!
And instead of doing my menu planning on a list or calendar this month, I thought I’d just make a grid and then choose from one each day of the week. I’m trying some recipes from a new cookbook, Saving Dinner the Low-Carb Way. It has a lot of good sounding recipes. I’ll let you know how these turned out!
And I’m going to try the One Line a Day again. It forces me to pay attention to what I’m reading.
And the memories page… Praying it’s a great August!
With all the ‘school’ stuff on sale, I found these Sharpie Creative Markers, S-Note that are not too bright, but will work as a highlighter or just a marker. So far, I really like them!
Gosh, I love your bujo spreads. They are so fun to look at. And the habit trackers… swoon. I’m in a season of learning to accept where I’m at, and not ready to take on too much more, but you are inspiring to me. Thank you, Kari!
I absolutely LOVE the habit trackers, those are SO SO SO neat. In July, I did a weekly page instead of daily pages- I LOVE this so much since our days are so unpredictable. I discovered that I love choices and did not get as discouraged as I was re-writing the same to-do list over and over until it finally got done, instead, I saw the big picture of what needed to be done and worked at it as the week went on. I tried your Bible one line a day idea and I LOVE this!!! I also am tracking weather, when I worked outside, and if I remembered to water – this has been a game changer for me. I think I might do a blog post about my bullet journal set-up, because I love reading about other’s so much (thank you for posting yours!) and because I feel like I finally found a system that works for me.
I am just getting started with Bible journaling and love seeing your samples. I recently purchased your Growing in Joy Philippians study. It states in the back that you have free doodles to download on your site. I have not found those yet, but I was curious do you use them in your bullet journals to add art to it? This is going to be a great deal of fun, thank you for sharing your talent. God bless you.
In Christs love,
