Hey Planner Dolls,
I’m back, with my first planner post on the blog. I can’t believe it’s taken this long because I am, in all actuality, a crazy obsessed planner girl.
That being said, let me introduce you to me bullet journal.
I bought this journal at Burlington Coat Factory ages ago, maybe my sophomore year of college. It is a plain, ruled notebook, the pages are off-white with pink lines and the closure is a magnetic panel.
My bullet journal setup is inspired by the YouTuber/Blogger/Etsy Shop Owner Kara from Boho Berry. It is pretty minimalistic, for me and my Victorian sensibilities, but I use my bullet journal as a pen only planner.
I’m in my bullet journal as my only planner right now because I haven’t ordered my school planner yet. I can’t decide between another spiral-bound, full-sized planner or the Recollections Organize-It binder with 3/4 sized pages.
Anyway, on to the main event, this month’s set up.
For August, I did a monthly memories page, with a decorative wreath and some faux-lligraphy.
And on the second page I put my August month at a glance.
On the left side are all the odd numbered days, on the right are all the even numbered days. I write the number and the day of the week that corresponds, then next to the day I write the important event or thing to remember. I have a color code system for bills, birthdays, holidays, school and personal.
After the monthly overview I put my “work” calendars for my blog and my two Storenvy shops, Princess Dee-Licious and Creative Blerd.
The left page is for this blog, pretty.black.&.nerdy. It has my blog posts and my blog tasks for the month, as well as my YouTube schedule.
The right page is for Princess Dee-Licious and Creative Blerd. I have daily tasks for each of my Storenvy shops that I keep in my bullet journal.
Next, I do a spread for monthly trackers. I track habits that I want to work on for the month and also Instagram photo challenges
And that’s the end of the monthly pages. Then I get into my weekly and daily spreads.
The weekly spread is one page with the week’s goals, to dos, important tasks and gratitude.
The daily pages have a date flag, a time scale, hydration, caffeine and meal trackers, a to do list and a devotion section.
Well, that’s all for now. I’m on vacation right now and I really must get some rest before the beach tomorrow.
