2 Months of Journaling

Two months of bullet journaling and I think I've settled on my weekly layout. I'm sure I'll tweak it a little each time, but it's working pretty well for me so far.

Things I like about bullet journaling:

  • I feel like I have much more intention in my daily life
  • Format is flexible, each week can expand or shrink depending on how busy I am and how many notes I'm taking 
  • Notebooks are cheap, especially in comparison to fancy planners
  • I feel like I'm using every bit of the notebook, less wasted space, fewer unused pages (NONE!) 
  • I like going through multiple planners in a year. I'm almost at the end of this planner, will almost definitely finish it this month, there's none of that end of year "I wish I had a new planner" feeling

Things that don't float my boat:

  • I have less artistry in me than I would like. Professionally designed planners look much nicer
  • When things get busy I don't have time to set up my week the way I would like to
  • There are some things, like my period tracker and a few other layouts that would be good to keep at hand, copying them takes time. I guess we'll see what's worth migrating to the next planner and what gets left behind, which is kind of the story of the rest of my journal

What do you like most about your planner?
