The Year I Try Time Blocking

I am trying to get a handle on the choas in my life right now. I don’t feel like it’s permanent chaos (a lot of it is related to a potential move or other temporary projects) or else I’d make some changes to remove some of it. Instead, I’m just trying to figure out how […]

2017 Monthly Printables

I know I haven’t posted much here lately, but please know I’m still a daily bullet journaler! I’ve just been incredibly busy, as I’m sure you all have been. So, since I know we’re all gearing up to prepare our 2017 Bullet Journals, I wanted to remind you that I have free printables available for […]

The Evolution Of My Daily Pages

One of the photos I included yesterday was a shot of one of my first daily pages. I was basically just making “to do” lists and decorating them with washi tape and stickers. And those were good days when I did that. A lot of days I just sloppily scratched lists not recognizing the therapeutic […]

Happy 3-Year BuJoVersary To Me!

(Yes. I did just make up a word. Why do you ask?) Do you see that volume number right there? That’s 001. That’s my FIRST official bullet journal. I say “official” because I tested the system out for about a month with a $5 notebook from Target and immediately knew: THIS IS MY JAM. My […]

Transferring Information To The New Journal

I’m two weeks away from starting another volume (#11!) in my bullet journal life – so it’s time to start transferring important information over to the next volume. I only transfer pages that I’ll need to reference regularly over the next three-four months. I’m not transferring my kid’s summer schedule because school has started, but […]

Free Monday Start Monthly Printables

Remember back when we discussed which we prefer on our Monthly View – a Monday start or a Sunday start? Well I decided I prefer a Monday start and have made some new printables to carry us out the rest of the year. My other printables are on this page if you prefer a Sunday […]

Scheduling Down Time

School started this week in my world. Soccer starts next week. On top of a full-time job and volunteer obligations, I found that my life got away from me last Autumn and we barely had time to breathe. To avoid that chaos and then anxiety it gives me, I’m trying something new this year. I’m […]

How My Bullet Journal Helps Me Run

Last year I successfully completed running my first 100K with the help of my bullet journal. I have a bit of a chaotic life, so strict training plans have never suited me. So, I printed up a basic plan I found online and just tried to keep my weekly miles above the recommended goal. Beyond […]

My Secret Confession: I like Mondays.

Mondays. It’s so cool and trendy to hate Mondays, but you know what? I like them. I like them A LOT. First of all, weekends are exhausting in our world so Mondays tend to bring calm again. But also? That’s the “start” of my week when I’m planning so everything is fresh and full of […]

When Do I Finish One Volume And Start Another?

I’ve been using the bullet journal system for almost 3 years now and I’m putting an average of about 3 months into each volume. I like starting a new volume at the first of the month, so there are some volumes with blank pages at the end and one with a LOT of blank pages […]
