Bullet Journalling 101 || Refreshing My Bullet Journal

Ghenet Actually || Refreshing My Bullet Journal

September seems like a strange time to be refreshing my bullet journal. Why not wait until January? Well, I’ve been caught by the back to school vibes and have been feeling a little uninspired. So I decided that refreshing my bullet journal was the best way to go! I’ve got a brand new notebook, some fresh ideas, and a Pinterest board filled to the brim with inspiration!

I’ve talked about bullet journallingΒ on the blog before, and it’s a real love of mine. Sometimes I go through phases where I use it constantly or I barely touch it. The great thing about a bullet journal is that you can change it to fit your needs! Here’s what I’m thinking about adding:

Condensed Weekly Schedule and More To-Do Lists

When I first started bullet journalling, my work schedule was all over the place. It made sense to dedicate space to that, so I could keep track. Now, with my set schedule, all that space is a little superfluous. It makes much more sense to utilize that space for to do lists and things I need to do each week!

Goals and Things I Want to Do

I already use my bullet journal to make lists, but I’d love to use it as more of a goal setting space as well. For example, I want to go through my wardrobe and fill it out more with essentials. My bullet journal would be a great place to keep track of that!

Blog Content Brainstorming

I do this already, but by refreshing my bullet journal, I can have a clean and clear space to revisit these ideas and come up with new ones. It’s a great thing to have as a guide when I feel like I’m stuck on ideas, and a place to jot down things when I’m struck with inspiration!

A Place For Random Thoughts

I’d also like to use my bullet journal as more of an actual journal. I didn’t do this as a kid, but I do sometimes think I should have a space in my bullet journal where I can just dump random thoughts, or jot things down.

I’ve been looking at lots of great things on Pinterest, and I’m really excited about refreshing my bullet journal! It seems a waste not to use it to the best of it’s ability, even if that does mean starting from scratch. I’ve also bought a new style of notebook to help me out too! Oh, stationery, how I love you!

      I’m really liking it so far! Particularly my books to read one. It feels like I’m actually accomplishing stuff!

    I bought a Leuchtturm earlier this year and have officially climbed on the bujo bandwagon like the true stationery addict that I am. I’ve been a bit lax with it over the past few months though, I still have a traditional planner for business + blog things. So I’m still trying to work out what would be the best use of the bullet journal that I’ve bought.

      Yeah, I’m in love with this one! I was using Moleskin before and this one is a teeny bit wider, which actually makes a huge difference!
