As we are now almost two weeks into 2018 I have finally figured out how I am going to stay organized and track my progress this year! I started using a Bullet Journal at least a year ago and I love it! I am by no means creative at all, in fact I dislike doodling greatly, but I love the idea of being able to create pages, calendars, and trackers to fit my personal needs. Check out Bullet Journal Tips and Tricks for ideas on how to use a Bullet Journal.
If you haven’t jumped on the Bullet Journal wagon yet, I encourage you to try it! Yes, unfortunately I still keep a planner, and a homeschool planner, but my bullet journal I customize to help with meal planning, blog tools and information, running and workout logs, and more.
How I Plan to Stay Organized in 2018
Now, please don’t judge! As I mentioned earlier I am not artistic at all. I mean when everyone was doodling and drawing bubble letters in school, I was not and for good reason, I’m awful at it! I still enjoy trying!
This year I’ve decided to use my bullet journal to help me in a few key areas:
- Meal Planning
- Weight Loss
- Workout Tracking
- Prayer Journal
- Gratitude Journal
- Monthly Recaps
Below you will find the pages I’ve created so far to keep me organized in a few of these areas.
I love that I can customize each month or page to fit my needs. I can also modify as I go if something isn’t working or helpful.
The hardest part of the bullet journal for me is not being able to rip the pages out when I have an oops moment (which happens often). The idea of the bullet journal is to just turn the page and or move to the bottom half and start over. It’s supposed to challenge your creativity and help you learn from mistakes or those whoops ideas. If you can get over that teeny tiny aspect of bullet journaling then it truly is a fun and fantastic way to stay organized and allow your creative juices to flow at the same time.
I’d love to hear from you!
Do you have a bullet journal? What’s your favorite part of the bullet journal process? If not, what kind of planner do you use to stay organized?
Until next time,
