Best Tools For Bullet Journaling
Before we dive right in, I want to mention the tools I have found and use for Bullet Journaling. If you’re just starting out on your BuJo journey, these are the tools I wish I had purchased at the beginning instead of overpriced books and markers that ‘professional bullet journal-ers’ recommended me.
- I use this journal, which is a dupe to the cult-favorite Leuchtturm1917. The only difference is the pages aren’t numbered. No biggie.
- This is the black pen I use for writing in my dailies and such.
- I get these colorful markers for decorating.
- Metal Stencils to help me decorate and design my journal. They come with a little carry case and ruler.
That’s it. And to be completely transparent, I only use the markers and stencils a couple of times a month, when I set up new pages, or am bored and want to decorate.
The bread and butter of a bullet journal is simply a pen and a notebook you carry with you regularly.
Don’t get too crazy in the beginning as you figure out what pages do and don’t work for you.
What To Put In A Bullet Journal Weekly Spread
Your bullet journal is completely customizable! When starting, you should play around and see what works for you best.
Some bullet journal weekly spreads are very minimalist and simply boxes with the dates next to them. There you can put your to-do list and anything you need to remember, like appointments.
Some weekly spreads are much more elaborate, as you will see below. I personally like to include a mini habit tracker on my weekly spread.
I don’t track too many things here, but it’s extremely satisfying ticking off my exercise and floss habit boxes! I have been extremely consistent with both since starting this.
Seeing your habits every day on your weekly spread is a great way to motivate and keep you accountable.
You can also get very creative, put things like the weather, a mini meal tracker, and quotes that inspire you.
Some ideas of what to include in a bujo weekly spread are:
- Meal Tracker
- Water Intake
- Mood Tracker
- To-Do List
- Upcoming Birthdays
- Mini Gratitude Log
- And more!
How Do You Do A Bullet Journal Weekly Spread?
As you’ll soon see, you don’t need much to create your weekly spread!
Simply writing the seven days of the week, with spaces in between for the tasks, would suffice for a beginner.
You can get as creative as you want with your bullet journal weekly spreads but it doesn’t have to be complicated at all.
The purpose of your weekly spread is to help you be more organized and productive. Through some trial and error you’ll be able to see what works for you best.
Go through this list of bullet journal weekly spread ideas and pick one or two you like and recreate a version of it in your own bujo. It doesn’t have to be identical.
Once you’ve been using a bullet journal for a couple of weeks, you’ll be able to design your own creative spread that works perfectly just for you!
