14 Monthly Spreads & Layout Inspiration for Your Bullet Journal

I’m always looking for inspiration on new layouts for my bullet journal. I like to change things up every now and then. I thought it would be helpful to compile some images of monthly spreads, in case you’re looking for ideas. Bookmark this page so you can refer to it anytime you need!

One of my favorite monthly spreads in my bullet journal (April 2016). I flipped the notebook sideways (like a wall calendar) and added some washi tape at the bottom.

From the creator:

“I integrated my tracker right into the calendar. I’m tracking a couple things daily, which I’ll mark off with Xs, and somethings I just want to track when they happen, which will be shown as color coded borders around my days. I started doing this during the second half of Jan and really like it.”

From the creator:

I set this page up in mind that I needed a monthly spread that would give me a quick glance at what’s happening and how the month has gone so far. My habit tracker is to the right, goals in the bottom center, and (inspired by @ohayobento) a health and wellness tracker/graph.

From the creator:

Wanted a list calendar to put events / appointments in but also wanted a month view as I like to visualise the month quickly so thought this layout would work well. Also wanted my header to be along the left hand side so flicking through will be easy to find later on down the line.

via @bohoberry

From the creator:

Instead of having 3 columns for “morning”, “afternoon”, and “evening”, I decided to divide it between “All Day”, AM & PM. I think I’m going to enjoy this format but as always, it’s just an experiment 🙂 The “All Day” column will house birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, vacations, etc.

Bullet Journal Weekly Spread #25

This week, I tried to use a “duochrome” color scheme. (Just learned that word on the Facebook Bullet Journal Junkies group lol). My goal was to use just blue stickers in my weekly spread, inspired by a fellow planner @sarahboparah. I have to admit, I didn’t love it, I think I will try it again in the future, but with different shades of the same color or something to add a little bit more interest. I did find this week easy to read and list my daily tracking items, it was a very clean layout. What do you think?

Supplies Used:

Bullet Journal Spread: Week 23

I’m quite happy with the way last week turned out. I’ve been trying out some monochromatic spreads lately, just because I love how some of them turn out on Instagram. This one was a violet/purple theme and I hand drew the banners, based of of this great little tutorial.

Bullet Journal – April Plan With Me Video

How to Get Started with a Bullet Journal

I love my bullet journal! I started my own bullet journal system on August 2015. I first discovered the planner world through a friend of mine who introduced me by showing me her planner and customized setup. I tried using traditional planners, but found I needed more of a fluid setup. I’m not sure how I stumbled into bullet journaling but I’m so glad I did. I’ve stuck to it ever since, and I love having my notebook with me everywhere. It helps me track migraines and other ailments, as well as helped me improve my memory and increase my daily water intake to name a few of the many benefits! There’s something about flipping through beautiful and colorful pages to plan my week that also just make my days better 🙂

I share a lot of pictures of my bullet journal throughout my social media accounts, so I thought I would do a “Bullet Journal Basics” post that answers all of the questions I get asked often.

What Is a Bullet Journal

The first thing you need to do is watch the official Bullet Journal intro video. It’s the perfect place to get an understanding of what the bullet journal system is and how to setup your own notebook. Read through the official bullet journal setup as well. After watching the video, you can customize the system and make it your own, but I highly recommend watching it first!

While you’re there, take a look at all of the posts the author shares on how to setup your pages, including the index page, what collections are/how they work, your bullet journal key, and more…

I stuck fairly close to the original system when I first started. Currently my system has grown to be quite different, but still a bullet journal at it’s core (at least in my opinion).

My Current Bullet Journal Weekly Layout

I also posted a video of my bullet journal setup, which takes you through all the pages I setup and how the layouts have changed as I used my journal longer.

Supplies You Need

Notebook – You need a notebook to write in. I use an extra large squared Molkeskine. I like the space it offers, the square grid to help my writing be neat and organized, and the storage pocket in the back. It also has a bookmark/page finder that I use to quickly flip to my current week/day page.

(This is the closest I could find on Amazon: Moleskine Large Squared, mine is just a bit bigger)

Blank Moleskine Bullet Journal Planner

There are many types of notebooks available, with all different types of paper. There’s dotted, ruled/straight lines, blank, and squared/grid like mine. You can print out different types of paper to test which one would work better if you’re undecided.

It’s also good to consider the size. Do you want your notebook to fit in your purse? If so, one a bit smaller might be better. My extra large Moleskine fits in my purse, but people with a smaller purse might need to downgrade to a smaller size.

Writing Tools – I did a lot of research before choosing the pens I currently use for my bullet journal. I have yet to find a pen that doesn’t at least ‘ghost’ on the thin bullet journal notebook paper. But the pens I currently use (Sharpie Pens) have no bleeding and the least amount of ghosting. I also use a set of Le Pen pens for when I feel like adding more color to my pages. I don’t write a lot with these in the same area because they do cause more bleeding/ghosting.

I also use a pencil to “pencil” in things before I trace them with pen or when I’m practicing my doodling. My favorite pencils are the Paper Mate Sharpwriters.

Setting Up Your Bullet Journal

Think about what you want/need. It’s an evolving process, you don’t usually keep the same format or layout that you start out with.

At first I wanted an indeterminate amount of space for each day. Then after doing it for a couple of months, I realized I used the same amount of space for each day on average so I decided to create weekly spreads so I could have some forward planning features in my bullet journal.

You can get A TON of inspiration online, and I’ve listed some of my favorite sources at the end of this post so you can get started.

Essentials

These are the list of pages that most bullet journals have to function as a planner. However, you can make it your own and add only the pages you want/need and will use.

Most bullet journals will have an Index Page and a Key. If you watched the intro video, you can learn how to set one up. I don’t use a Key anymore, but I did start out with one. Some people use color coding instead of symbols as their key. I did this for a while as well.

Calendar Pages

Monthly Calendar in my Bullet Journal
Monthly Calendar Layout

Calendar pages include the:

  • annual/year calendar
  • monthly calendar
  • weekly or daily spreads
  • calendex or future planning pages

Collection Pages

Collections can really be anything! For me, they are lists or special pages in my bullet journal that don’t fit into the calendar or weekly spread pages. Some of the collection pages I use are:

  • Meal Planning
  • Bill Payment Tracker
  • Wish List
  • To Do List
  • Monthly Habit Trackers
  • Gratitude Log
Bills To Pay Tracker in my Bullet Journal

Decorating Your Bullet Journal Pages

My favorite part of my bullet journal – decorating my pages!

Don’t get intimidated by this like I did at first. If you’re not great at drawing, you can trace! I love tracing icons and graphics into my pages. Did you know they also make stencils just for bullet journals? So you can create your own banners and icons with perfect lines. There are many options to help your pages turn out awesome!

Also, your decorating supplies may be limited at first, but they will grow with time, so don’t get discouraged because you don’t have as much washi tape as other bujo junkies! (If you didn’t already know, bujo is short for bullet journal). You can read my post here on how I order washi, stickers, and other planner supplies from AliExpress for super CHEAP!

I use stickers, stamps, washi tape, scrapbooking paper, magazine cutouts, pencils, crayons, markers, glitter, basically, anything that I think would look pretty in my bullet journal pages.

Stickers

I’m currently on a sticker roll, and I love making stickers sized for my bullet journal grid each week (view my bullet journal stickers ») and decorating with them!

My most recent sticker set I created (Pink Flamingo Bullet Journal Sticker Set) is one of my favorites so far, you can see how I used it in the image below.

I also print out tons of free stickers online (Pinterest is your friend) to use in my pages. You can view my Pinterest board of free stickers to print for starters.

Follow Girly Planners’s board Free Printable Stickers on Pinterest.

 

Other Tips

  1. If you’re notebook doesn’t come with numbered pages, take a few minutes to add numbers to each of your pages. It makes it easier to index/refer to them later.
  2. Decorate your notebook cover! You can add stickers or washi tape, special quotes, etc…

I highly recommend joining the Bullet Journal Junkies Facebook group. As of the date of this, they currently have 22,000+ members who share a wealth of information, pictures, and answers to any questions you may have!  Facebook Group »

How to Order Stickers and Planner Supplies from AliExpress (and Haul Video)

How to Order Planner and Stickers AliExpress Cheap

I don’t remember how I stumbled onto AliExpress to buy planner supplies, but I’m so glad I did. I wanted to share with you guys how I do it and also answer some of the frequently asked questions I get asked the most.

AliExpress Shipping Costs and Times

I never pick an item that charges shipping. When you’re searching for items on AliExpress, you can filter them by shipping costs. Most of the items/stores I see listed don’t usually charge for shipping, but some do, so turn on this filter first thing.

Most stores will have a minimum of 15-30 days listed as shipping times. I typically receive my packages in 3-5 weeks. Although some have arrived a bit sooner. Expect to wait about a month on average before you get your packages.

Refunds and Returns

I’ve never yet done a return, because it would cost more to ship an item back to China, then it would to just get a refund.

AliExpress will let you Open a Dispute if you receive an item that’s not in the condition it’s supposed to be, etc… and it will ask you to upload photographic evidence, and then the refund is quickly issued.

Sometimes, you don’t receive the package and the order protection time is running out, you can then Open a Dispute and the seller will issue you a refund since you didn’t receive your product in the stated amount.

Want to see all the supplies I’ve ordered? I did a video below showing you all of the different items and their costs. For all of the items listed below, I spent a total of $70! That includes an A5 binder/planner, inserts, tons of stickers, 20 washi tapes, page flags, and more!

How to Use Your Planner to Reach Your Goals (and free printable)

It’s a new year, which means a lot of people (myself included) want to focus on new goals – or maybe the same ones as the previous year – and resolutions.

Since I’m a planner girl, I love incorporating paper/written tools to help me accomplish my goals. My planner also helps to keep them in front of my mind because it’s always next to me and I flip through it on a daily basis.

I want to share with you how I’ve been using my planner to help me reach my goals and build better habits.

Set The Right Goal

First, you have to start out with the right goal, a S.M.A.R.T. goal! If you’re not familiar with the acronym, it stands for:

S – Specific
M – Measureable
A – Achievable/Action Step
R – Relevant
T – Time Bound

Let’s use health and fitness as an example, which is a very popular goal/resolution. You could make your goal “I want to loose 30 lbs”. But, that is not an effective goal. There’s no action to it, no deadline, and it might not even be relevant.

Let’s say that you want to loose 30 lbs because that is the weight that you would be healthy at, etc… Losing weight is a process. You have to eat healthier, exercise, drink more water, get enough sleep, to name a few.A S.M.A.R.T. goal based on your overall goal (to lose 30 lbs) might be:

Eat a healthy breakfast every morning for the next 30 days.

This goal is specific, you are going to eat a healthy breakfast and are focusing on that.

This goal is also measurable. If you ate a poptart or donut for breakfast, you did not eat a healthy breakfast.

This goal is achievable – Losing 30 lbs is not an action step, but eating a healthy breakfast is.

This goal is relevant – If you want to lose weight and it’s important to you, this goal supports that and will help you get there.

This goal is time bound – It takes 21 days to build a habit, so by the end of the 30 days, you should have a healthy habit built, and at the end of the 30 days you can look back and see if you’ve had a healthy breakfast every morning in the past month.

I try to always set goals that include action steps, this way I can track them in my planner.

Daily Goal Tracking Insert

Once you have a SMART goal or resolution to work with, it’s time to add some fun planner inserts and trackers! I created an insert to track my daily action steps for each month. I’ve shared the link so you can download it below. Also, here’s a sample of what it looks like when it’s filled out. The action step goes in the left column, and I shade in each box for the corresponding date once I’ve completed it.

Monthly Goal/Habit Tracker - Example Filled

Monthly Habit/Action Steps Tracker (A5, Blank) Printable »

If you’d like me to upload it in any other sizes, just leave a comment below!

Daily Check In

In my experience, it’s not enough to just track my goal action steps on a daily basis. I find it extremely helpful to have “recap” of my day and a written assessment of what went right, what went wrong, and how I can do better tomorrow. I just hole punch a blank piece of paper, add the date at the top, and write down my daily check in notes. I usually don’t need a whole page, so one page might include 3-4 days worth of entries. Make sure to track all 3, not just what went wrong, or just what went right. It’s important to celebrate small victories too!

I’d love to hear about how you use your planner to help you reach your goals and build better habits. If you have any feedback, comment below!
