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 […]

Preserving Artifacts From A Vacation

I tried scrapbooking for about 5 minutes about 15 years ago. I loved the paper and the stamps and the beauty of it all – but I had ZERO patience and even less of an attention span which was needed for scrapbooking. Work so hard to document on birthday party? Nope. I couldn’t do it. […]

The Random Lists In A Bullet Journal

Obviously with the #PlanDocumentCreate motto I love those three main things about bullet journaling: I can plan, I can draw, I can preserver. Movie tickets, vacation plans, zendoodles…these things represent the most common pages in my bullet journal. However, the other thing I love about the Bullet Journal system is the ability to combine all […]

Do You Prefer A Monday or Sunday Start To The Week On A Monthly View?

Since I only have the current week and current month in my bullet journal active at one time, future planning became a challenge. I compensated for this by printing up a month’s worth of monthly pages and keeping them clipped to the back of my notebook. I call these the “scratch” pages because – as […]

Don’t Tell My Bullet Journal, But I Bought A New Notebook.

Before I started using the bullet journal system three years ago, I would carry around as many as 4 notebooks/calendars with me at one given time. A small pocket calendar for my purse. A large planner for my work bag. A large journal/sketchbook. A small notebook. But the wonderful thing about the bullet journal is […]

A Surprisingly Useful Spread

Right before school let out for the summer, I decided I needed to map out our summer in terms of camps and daycares so I could A) budget childcare cost appropriately since my husband and I both work full time so childcare becomes more expensive during summer and B) make sure I chose camps for […]
