I love the idea of a bullet journal because I love lists and post-it notes etc. and it would be great to be able to keep it all in some form of organisational system and in one place too. I've seen lots of images of people's bullet journals over on Instagram - I could quite easily (and very happily I might add) spend hours going through them all.
Me, too! I could just sit and watch people's BuJos on Youtube for hours And image google them and look at the prettyful pictures
I second this! It's great finding inspiration from others, although I usually end up getting really jealous of how great other people's journals are. Mine would never be anywhere near as good!
This is the one thing that annoys me... I wish my handwriting was a lot more fancy and I wish I could do all sorts of calligraphy, and I wish I could draw really well... I'd love my BuJo to be really artistic, too! But I'm going to try to just have fun with it, and make it my own - even if that means it's not going to be that fancy.
I've recently purchased three of these journals - in grid/squared format - for use as a book journal, movie/television journal and one for wishlists. Could probably have used just one for all three but they were all such pretty colours!
No one could fault you for buying three I think a lot of people on here are pretty huge notebookaholics... We actually have a thread on the subject
I have one too, but mine isn't anywhere as fancy. I just have a monthly overview, to-do lists and future logs. I love seeing what other people do though, Kell's pictures are very inspirational. Would love to see pictures of your Bullet Journal, Brian.
You have on, too! So cool!
I also use the Leuchtturm 1917 dot grid. I got lucky because my local WHSmith (stationary chain) were selling them off at £1 each so I bought all their remaining stock which was only 6 notebooks sadly.
You got really, really lucky! For one thing, I couldn't find any LT1917's at the two bookstore chains we have here, and second, they cost quite a bit, don't they! Is it easy to find LT1917's over there, in bookstores?
6 notebooks.... Lucky barsteward!
As for the time it takes, it's entirely up to the user. I am not particularly artistic so my Bujo is fairly basic without many embellishments but if I have the time I do tend to make some of the pages look nicer. I use it for making notes on some subjects, noting recipes and also as a traditional journal to record my thoughts and feelings. I really like the fact that its very flexible and you can use it for pretty much anything that comes to mind.
Thank you so much for posting pictures! I loved going through them I'm not artistic, either, so I felt like I needed something extra to make it nicer... Went and bought washi tape! (Also learned a new word: washi tape). I found a really cute one, too! It's pink with golden xoxoxoxo going on and on, in two rows.
I found it quite tricky to find pages to put in as there is quite a lot in my Bujo that is for my eyes only. As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I don't use it every day but I do go back to it when I am busy or stressed as I find it quite therapeutic.
This reminds me: Do you keep your BuJo at home or do you guys take it everywhere you go, kind of like a calendar/journal?
I spent many happy hours on my BuJo on Wednesday I'm in love with it!
