Bullet journals are your one-stop shop for staying organized and checking off every box of your to-do list. Designed by the user, bullet journals are completely customizable, and no two people will have the same one! Bullet journals were first introduced by Ryder Carroll, who is a New York Times best-selling author for his book The Bullet Journal Method: Track the Past, Order the Present, Design the Future.
The bullet journal method is quite simple, actually! So, if you are looking for a new way to organize and track your life, or perhaps even looking to get a little creative, then bullet journaling is for you! There are so many different ways to use it, from trackers, to-do lists, doodles, weekly spreads -- the possibilities are endless!
Do you ever wonder how often you follow through on a habit? It takes 21 days to make a new habit, so maybe tracking it will convince you to follow through on those resolutions you made back at New Year’s. There are multiple ways to layout a habit tracker, but the easiest is to make a calendar of the month and fill in each square on the day you complete your habit! If you follow through, your whole month will be filled. (Photo by @bujolyst on Instagram.)
If you’re picky like me, trying to pick a planner that is laid out exactly how I want is almost impossible to find. Lucky for me, I can make my own! To-do lists can be completely customized in a bullet journal and can be incorporated into monthly or weekly spreads! They can be simple or detailed, the choice is yours.

Do you ever have a great idea that you want to write down? How about when you need a second to clear your mind and re-center yourself, but you only have a planner handy? This is why the bullet journal is so useful and versatile. You can create journal pages in bullet journals to release your thoughts, write down your affirmations, or perhaps just to get something off your mind.
Much prettier and more customizable than a wall calendar, bullet journals are great creative spaces to write down to-do lists, trackers, journal, doodle, and anything else you can think of. Weekly spreads are meant to organize your week by laying out each day with your events and tasks.
