So, if you are keeping up with my posts, you might remember me mentioning something about bullet journaling. (The post I mentioned this in)
Yes, so I planned to start a bullet journal a few weeks ago…. It was just a random thought I had.
For bullet journaling, I needed a notebook (That’s obvious!) I went on Amazon to find some dotted journals, most of them were cheaper than Rupees 500(Indian Currency) which is around $6.80 in US. But, the quality wasn’t good enough to buy… well, I found a cheap and amazing offer, it was the same brand as my sketchbook. No, they didn’t sponsor me…. I bought it on my own, but the quality is soooo good for the price!
You can check it out here. (Link is for Amazon India)
Pros of this Journal
- A5 Sized
- It has a black color and looks very minimalistic (which I really like!).
- The cover is hard bound and sturdy.
- It’s dot gridded and lay’s flat
- There is an elastic closure provided.
- 2 bookmarks are provided
- There is an extra pocket in the end
Cons of this Journal
- The pages are not numbered
That was literally one con! If you are in India, looking for an affordable journal this is the one you need!
In my thinking you don’t need expensive stuff to journal….
After I searched for washi tapes and stickers, I realized that they were costlier than the journal itself!
Rather than spending money on those….. I printed some stickers. Also I used a hole puncher to get some cute and colorful circles.
I also used some old magazines to make these envelopes.
And printed some designs I liked.
This portion of today’s post was mostly about proving that bullet journaling is not that expensive!
2021 Bujo Setup
I started by simply putting a 2021 label on my bullet journal. It’s very minimalistic, but cute.
There was a box on the front page, on which I wrote some contact details. (Sorry but I can’t share that page😟. I also numbered the pages because they weren’t numbered (as told earlier)
Then we have the Index. I decorated it using some old magazine paper and doodles. It turned out pretty good.
Then, I made a future log. This was the most time consuming and tiring part! But still, it turned out be cute and I really like it.
Next I made this page called 20 goals for 2021.
Then I proceeded to make this page called Moments of 2020, where in chose some pic and stuck them as a collage, just for a memory.
Next we have the Gratitude page.
I did make a mistake by including this in the yearly setup and not on the monthly one.
Then I made the brain dump page, on which I’ll write ideas/simply whatever that’s in my mind!
Once again I should had included this in the monthly setup, I’ll keep it mind though.
