Testing Out A 2-Week Layout…Again?

I’ve been bullet journaling so long that I honestly have no idea what I have and have not done before. I’m pretty sure I previously used a 2-week layout at some point in my bullet journaling history, but if I have, it’s been so long that this feels new.

My work schedule has changed a bit so I don’t really need daily pages anymore. When I used daily pages, I also did a 1-week layout for the “at a glance” type of view. I never really felt like this was enough as I usually start planning details two weeks ahead, especially for the kid’s school stuff. 2-weeks is about the notice you get for school events, at least in our case.

So now that I don’t need daily pages, I’ve decided to do a 2-week layout and just put the scheduled items on there and just keep a running “to do” page that doesn’t necessarily have a date/schedule on it. We’ll see how this works for my new daily life.

Do you use a layout like this? If I stick to this, I’ll post a picture of what my “to-do” page looks like as well, but that one I haven’t quite sorted out yet. I do need to keep it set by day in SOME manner, but every day doesn’t need it’s own page. This 2-week layout I really like so I know this one is going to stick as long as it proves useful.

With this change in work situation I’ll be able to update my Bullet Journal Joy accounts with more regularity. For this reason, I made my photographer-kid take a picture of me and my bullet journals, and I updated a lot of my profiles with the new SUPER DORK photo.

But I kinda love my super-dorky photo.

  1. I have come to exactly the same conclusion and will be looking forward to hearing how it works for you. I am going to try your two week layout and I am also trying to figure out how to work out my daily list so keep us posted. Thank you!

  2. Cool

  3. I like putting my to do list on large lined post its and moving it along as my calendar moves along and re-writing it when it gets too messy.

    I think it is an evolving process. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I always enjoy seeing how you add fun to becoming organized.

    That’s a great idea, I hadn’t thought of it. I often find myself on weekends struggling to find time to create my weekly layout (even 10 minutes) with my two little ones running around. A two week layout will make that so much easier. Thank you for the idea! Also, glad to hear you’ll be posting more often – I always enjoy reading them.

  6. I haven’t tried this two-week before but it does look useful, especially for people who plan 2 weeks ahead like you do. I sometimes do that.

  7. […] for random lists, though (maybe those are supposed to go in the day-by-day blocks?) and I just saw a bullet journal post on Twitter this morning that gave me two-weeks-at-a-glance envy … but every new tool takes […]
