what is a bullet journal?
From the creator himself, “The Bullet Journal is a customizable and forgiving organization system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above. It will teach you to do more with less.” A bullet journal is a way to organize your ideas and organize your life from to-do lists, calendars, and habit trackers!
how do you start a bullet journal?
First, you’ll need to buy the appropriate notebook. I bought mine from Michael’s for only $6.99 and I had a 40% off coupon on top of that! Literally so cheap!
Next, you’ll need ultra thin pens that won’t bleed through the paper. I recommend these from Michael’s!
Finally, you’ll need some IDEAS! How do you want to make your life easier? What do you want in your journal?
For me, this was one of the hardest parts. I’ve seen so many blogger start bullet journals but I just never knew where or how to start. What would I even write about? After spending an entire afternoon on Pinterest, I found some cool ideas that I wanted to incorporate into my journal!
My biggest piece of advice is using a pencil first before any pen is put on paper. I tend to mess up a lot and a few girls on Twitter gave me the advice of using pencil first. If you don’t like the way it looks you can instantly erase and try again!
