It’s been a full month since I started the new and improved bullet journal and holy crap! What a life changer! Combining bookish/blogging things along with my daily life has made me an actual real productive person! I find that it’s easier to manage everything when it’s together. I’m able to keep things straight, prioritize, and I’m no longer wandering around trying to remember what I had to do and when I had to do it. Last month (Check out my October bullet journal pages here) I was able to see what worked for me and what didn’t. So over the next few months I hope to try some new things and see how they work. I combined November and December in this one and then in the middle of December I plan on featuring things you would include in your journals at the beginning of the year. That way if you’re planning on starting fresh, you can follow along with me! So, here’s what November and December look like!
This entire spread is new and i’m so happy with the way it turned out! I was a little iffy about using a whole page just for a title for the month, but it’s one of my favourite pages now! The meals page is new and very helpful so far. I use small post it notes for each day and write down ideas for things I can make that week. That way it’s not set in stone and if I need to change something, all I have to do is move the post it note to another day. I also like being able to keep track of what we’ve had. It gives me ideas of what we haven’t had in a while and how many times we’ve eaten out. I didn’t start the month off good because I was so sick though 😦
This is a spread that I kept the same from last month. I like being able to see personal and blogging things side by side. The tracker is helpful but I want to maybe change it up in the future. I also like the ‘remember this’ space but, I honestly had that space filled up the very next day so now I have to go the whole month with no space to fill in. I know I’ll be changing that in the future but I just don’t know how yet.
Here are two examples of my daily tasks pages. The one on the left is from November and the one on the right is from December. This layout seems to be working VERY well for me but I think that in January I may make some minor changes to it. I don’t use the “next week” spot at all really and the “to do” spot is too large and I never really fill it. So January will be the month of changes I think.
Yes, this is a repeat of the same layout in November, but this one is just so pretty so I had to include a picture of it here!
Lastly, this one I gave a bit of an overhaul, but didn’t change too much from October. I just cleaned it up a little bit. I’m still not happy with the “This month I read” page but I can’t figure out how to alter it yet. It will work for now.
So that’s what November and December looks like for the most part. I’m starting to really see what works and what doesn’t. I just finished all the pages for the end of the year and the beginning of the year set up and I’m sooooo excited to share them with you! ** probably mid December** I have a feeling that some big changes will be happening in January once I figure out the changes that need to be made. I heard from so many people last month that this helped them figure out how to incorporate this into their lives as well so I’m glad this post is helping!
Until next time, happy reading!
