Bullet journaling is a great way to keep life organized while finding an aesthetic that matches your personality. While all bullet journals look different, many will have common spreads.

Supplies used: bullet journal (found at Barnes & Noble) Cardstock paper, Pigma Micron pens, Tombow Dual Brush pens, Recollections Crafting Tape, Jolee’s Boutique Stickers, Recollections Label Stickers (all found at Michael’s).

Once you have your desired supplies, in the colors you like, get ready to create. Grab a cup of coffee, put on your favorite show or play your favorite music.

Month Cover Page: Having a monthly cover page is a great way to welcome in the new season. This spread can range from just having the month’s name to being a full monthly calendar.

Monthly Goals: Creating a list of monthly goals is a great way to start the new month. This provides motivation and excitement for what is to come. For many, having goals gives people a sense of purpose. At the end of the month, a sense of pride and completion comes with it as you see how many you were able to accomplish.

Monthly Focus: A monthly focus can be an inspirational quote or Bible verse you wish to meditate on for the month. In times of doubt or uncertainty pull it out and read it. Give yourself the emotional confidence you need, and keep the quote in mind anywhere you go.

Saving Plan: Having a savings plan is an effective way to see what you have and what you desire to achieve in your savings. Instead of just guessing what is in your bank account, have it planned out. Making a goal like this is great to have while in school, as is creates a visual of where you plan to go. It also creates a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction as you save more and the bar goes up.
