Ask me about my bullet journal…

IMG_0190

After people watch the bullet journal video or read my master bullet journal post, the most common question I get asked is: “How do I plan for the future?”

I used to keep a page marked “future dates” and just write upcoming events down and cross them off when I created that monthly page. But now! I saw where someone had stuck one of those cheap wall-sized year calendar in the back of their bullet journal so I stole the idea but used my printables (seen on my sidebar) and clipped them to the back instead! I don’t always actually use that page when I create the monthly page because it’s often sloppy but it’s at least a guide and a way to quickly add something coming up a few months from now. Since I usually have two “live” months going (the current one and the upcoming which I usually start before we get to the 15th of the current month) I’ll keep 10 months pinned to the back of the journal.

Do you have any other questions? I’m totally loving this new planning and bullet journal community I’ve found on instagram – so I’m having even more fun with my bullet journal than before. If you have any questions or concerns about the system that I could answer in a way to bring you do the dark side, I’d love to.

    The only question i have is where to find that or a similar case for my Leuchtturm. I have read your Kindle Case and Rickshaw Folio Articles, but still. The only ones i could find are mostly made for ipads and too ‘Corporate’ for my taste.

    I saw this tip somewhere else you posted it (Instagram maybe) and when I started my 1st bullet journal this weekend (FINALLY! YAY!) I printed out November and December and put them in the back folder of the 1917. They are already pretty full and it’s really handy to have them there to grab when I need them.
