How to Bullet Journal?

All you need to start your own Bullet Journal is a pen and a notebook!

There are so many different types of notebook out there but ideal you need a blank one or something with a light grid that you gives you a guide, but in really anything will work.

Ideally, all of your notebook pages should be numbered and at the front, you have an index. You then turn to the next page and write in the index what you have used it for, so it is easily found.

You might start with the year at a glance followed by a monthly or weekly spread, possibly with all your tasks listed. Maybe a record of all your pens and how they look when written with. You could keep a written journal of what you did today, write up your holiday plans or just a brain dump to empty your head of all your wonderful ideas.

Because you are indexing as you go, you can just turn to the next empty page, index its use and then you can find it easily when you need it.

The concept of using a Bullet Journal was conceived by Ryder Carroll and you can find out more information here www.bulletjournal.com
