If you’re wondering what a Bullet Journal is I’ll make you just as obsessed in a few moments, just keep reading.
I own lots of journals and I write my to-do lists daily. I plan our budget, upcoming bills on any journal I find laying around. It gets a bit chaotic when it’s time to find the One thing I’m looking for. So the other day while browsing the internet I came across the “Bullet Journal” or BuJo for short.
The concept was originally created by Ryder Carroll, a very simplistic way of keeping everything in your life organized in one little notebook. It has now evolved to a lot more. Monthly trackers, goal setters, tasks, lists, motivation, doodling. You can do whatever you want with it. It’s your notebook. But if you’re just starting out and want to keep it simple, you should follow the original layout. So what is a bullet journal? Just watch the video below by the Ryder Carroll.

Now the hard work is identifying the essentials: you’ll need to create your own journal, it might take a few months, maybe even a few notebooks to adapt this system to my way of living but I’m happy I found this and I can’t wait to share my progress with you all.
Want to get started? All you need is a book and a pen.
If you want to get all fancy schmancy you can purchase a dotted book and some nice pens like this and this or fountain pens (a favorite of Bullet Journal users that I’ve seen so far is from the Goulet Pen Company), which are super duper fancy. I’m not there yet but I am fascinated with calligraphy. So I do see it happening in the very near future.
I’m almost done creating all of the different spreads I liked from Boho Berry and I can’t wait for April to start to really get things going.
Thanks for Reading, Stay tuned for more.
