Hi guys, and welcome back! As it’s the first blog post of the month, we’ll be going through my September bullet journal spread. I’m still trying to improve my creativity, but this month’s spread is pretty basic again. I start back at University in a week’s time, so we do have more organisational pages this time round.
Let’s get into it!
In the first double page I have left it focused around the full calendar. I’m often too lazy to try and count forward the dates to find out which day corresponds to which day, so a full calendar layout is great for me. Plus, it looks really nice in a bullet journal.
I originally had written “September” on the page but I ended up not liking the font I had done, so I thought I’d be a little bit creative and add some brown paper in there for cover it up. I drew some fall leaves but coloured them in blues and purples for a bit of contrast to the usual orange!
The picture on the left is of my boyfriend and my puppy, Alfie! I LOVE this picture, and a lot of the pen on the previous page had seeped through, so this was something really special that I could use to cover that up.
The next couple of spreads is a very simple, day-to-day calendar. To fill up the space I have left after putting in all the dates, I added a little “to do” list at the end of every week. I think this will help me remember the things I have to do that week that I can’t fit into a specific day in the calendar.
For the last two days, I did something bigger and fancier just to fill up some space.
On the next page is my habit tracker for the month! I’ve blocked off studying until the day I actually start back at Uni as I won’t be doing anything before then. The rest of the topics are: gym, blogging, social media, plants and self-care. I really find that a tracker is sooo helpful to motivate you to do all these things!
This last double page is a bit busier. I like to keep track of what I have in my fridge to help reduce waste, and to also help me get ideas for lunches and dinners. I’ve written a list of ideas (ignore the spelling of some of them) to help use up the foodstuff I have. It’s always great to do this when you have the motivation, as I find I can be so tired I’d rather not eat than think about what I can make myself. Having this list really helps make deciding what to have for dinner quicker!
I’ve then written down my Uni lecture schedule so I can refer to it in my journal, and I also have a little bit of brown paper in there again to keep track of when the dog walker is visiting. Because I’ll be at Uni for some awkward hours on some days, I’ve decided a dog walker would be a HUGE help to me!
That’s my bullet journal for this month – I hope you enjoyed it! As per usual, I get most of my inspiration from Pinterest. If you want to check out my Pinterest and bullet journal board, you can here.
