What the heck is a bullet journal?
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. Check the bullet journal website here → Bullet Journal
I have been wanting to start one of these for a looong long time. If you’re a Pinterest follower you know that I pin a bunch of layout ideas to my bullet journal board.
All you need is a notebook and a pen! So last week I finally decided to get a notebook to start my own bullet journal. After several searches on the internet, I picked the dotted Leuchtturm 1917 in colour navy blue because all the other colours I wanted were out of stock, gosh darn it. Thumbs up for my luck.
(Disclaimer: all these notebook pics are taken from the Leuchtturm 1917 website!)

It’s the medium size (A5), hardcover, 249 numbered pages and I love the consistence of the paper.
It has its own stickers for labelling and archiving
A blank table of content
And 8 perforated and detachable sheets!
I also bought a pen loop that matches the notebook:
Now what are you supposed to do with it, you may ask? I suggest you watch this short video that explains pretty much the basics and how to set up your bullet journal.
You can set it up however you want, there are endless ways to customise it, make it more personal and prettier! Here are some of my favourite bullet journal layout ideas made by these awesome people:
I need to start setting mine up now! I am so excited and I am sure this is a way to help people stop procrastinating!
I hope this inspired you to track things down, put goals on paper and use your creativity while being organised!
