August Plan With Me

Hi there.  Today I want to show you my August set up of my bullet journal.  I have been using a bullet journal for about two years now on and off after being introduced to the system by my daughter-in-law.  Planning helps me organize my life and get things done.  And I have also found it is such a great creative outlet as well.

My bullet journal is an emerald Leuchtturm 1917 in the 8" x 5.5" size.  Markers are Faber-Castell PITT artist pens (black) in the sizes XS, S and B.  Gold and yellow are Crayola Supertips.  The theme for August is fairy lights.

First off is my cover page.

Next, is my monthly calendar.  I add all of the events I want to remember in the squares.

Then we have my daily review.  In this spread I colour code how my day was and write a couple of lines or a quote that I want to remember for that day.

The next page is my daily gratitude log.  I write down one thing that I am grateful for a day whether big or small.  The second half of this page is my creative commitments for the month.  I filled it in already so there are some hints here of my design team month to come...oops!

Following that is my habit tracker.  These are habits that I want to do on a daily basis.  It is interesting to see how my day affects the habits that are actually done.  I can see how my energy affects my productivity by tracking habits as well.

Lastly, we have the first weekly entry.  I used a technique called a dutch door where I cut a page in my journal in half and use each daily space to write down my tasks.  One side is for weekly events and the other is for a tiny month with the week highlighted.  And, of course, a Bible quote. 

And there you have it.  It's how I set up my bullet journal for the month of August.  Let me know in the comments if you would like to see more of my bullet journal or if you have any questions.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great weekend.

  1. Love this Heather! You have inspired my to be more creative with my TJ. I so agree, planners help to make sense of the madness that so often happens in life.
