For most of us, organization used to be this dull thing, full of tedious spreadsheets and to-do lists that never got done. That has changed in a big way. Today, organization is something we all consider GR8. We finally traded the dull worksheets for fun, creative, and beautiful pages tucked together in what we like to call a bullet journal.

Even if you’ve never grabbed a journal before, you know what most people mean when they refer to bullet journals. You’ve seen those perfectly organized pages in your Instagram feed before. And, if you’re one of the most experienced ones referring to this trend as BuJo, you already know what we’re here for.

Whether you’re new or a seasoned expert looking for new ways to go about your bullet journal, we got you.

How to Start Bullet Journaling

Sound good enough? Here’s the best thing about bullet journaling, all you need is a notebook and a pen. Once you get into the groove of bullet journaling, you can add stickers, washi tape, highlighters, doodles, different page styles, and more.

What Is a Bullet Journal

Let’s start with the basics. Bullet journaling can be described as the analog system for the digital age. This paper-based system for planning, reaching goals, and staying organized is everyone’s dream.

We might be trying to make this sound like an elaborate organization system. But in reality, bullet journaling is merely a notebook where you can organize your life and keep track. It’s based on using sharp bullet points to draft to-do lists, weekly schedules, goals, and even holiday vacations.

While that’s its essence, people nowadays have adapted it to suit their own needs. The simple traditional task-based system has blossomed into a creative outlet for people looking to express themselves throughout the day.

Indeed, that’s the beauty of bullet journaling. It can be whatever you want it to be.

Why You Should Start Bullet Journaling

With Google Calendars, iCalendars, Reminders, and Outlook Calendars, why on earth would you need another planning system? Why wouldn’t just buy one of those planners on the market? Don’t they fulfill the same need?

Yes. And no.

A bullet journal is in the sweet spot between a planner, the to-do list on your fridge, and your diary. Bullet journaling is completely adaptable and customizable to your needs. Since you can create your system and layout, and you can change them as you become an expert in the matter, bullet journaling is a different ballgame.
