The bullet journal is back by popular demand! But this update might not be as interesting as you hoped it would be lol. I have found something that is like a rare and sparkly unicorn – I have found “planner peace”. Planner peace is defined as what happens when you find the layouts and spreads that work for you perfectly and you don’t feel the need to change them. It has taken me YEARS to get to this point! And it probably won’t stay this way! When things change in your life, your planner needs change along with it. But for now my life is set in a certain routine and my bullet journal spreads reflect that.
So, long winded intro aside, my spreads are still the same as they were in the update I posted at the beginning of the year. If you want to see my bullet journal set up for the year then check out my post HERE!! I have made a couple small changes and that’s what this post is about.
CHANGE #1 – Edited the meal page!
Not book related AT ALL but, if you check out my last bullet journal update, you’ll see that I’ve made a small change to my meal page. I like to keep track of all of our meals so that I can see what we’ve had recently, what we haven’t had in a while, and have the ability to look back and maybe get some meal ideas. I used to use post it notes to write down meals and I would move them around for the days that I actually planned to make it. I never used them! Ever! Half the time I don’t know what I’m going to make until a few hours before I make it so they sat blank. This is a much cleaner look!
CHANGE #2 – Added a cleaning tracker!
Once again, not book related, but NECESSARY! My life is insanity and I needed a way to track my cleaning and give myself some motivation. The boxes are under the washi tape on the bottom left (just above the calendar). I assign a room to each day of the week and I colour in the box once I’ve cleaned the room. LR stands for Living Room, CA stands for computer area, KI stands for kitchen, B is for bathroom, etc.
CHANGE #3 – added a pages read tracker!!!
And now, finally onto a book related spread!! This one has been an absolute GAME CHANGER!!!! I love this page more than I ever expected to and it has motivated me to read every chance I get so that I can bump up my pages read. Each box is worth 10 pages and my goal is to fill in as many squares as I can. I’ve done really well so far but I attribute that to the fact that I’ve been doing a lot of rereading. I will most definitely be keeping this spread in my bullet journal because it’s pushed me so hard to read every day and read as much as I can. I find that I’m wasting less time on my phone and social media because I’m driven to read. LOVING this spread!!!
So that’s it! I know, not a whole lot going on. But there’s a few book related things that I may be adding in the future. I want to try and keep the whole year in one book so I need to make sure I’m not going to run out of room. I’ll have to count some pages before I decide!
Until next time, happy reading!
